Ok.... so I've got this old Coleman 5500w generator with a Tecumseh 10hp motor that's loud as f*ck..... so I did some reading and a few people in the know have added car mufflers to their generators to keep them reasonably quiet so I look around. Thrush (I think made by Dynomax) has one - model #17700 which is 1.5inch in/out and 11inch body for sale at JEGS.com for $19.99usd :
Ok... so I call Lordco for identical muffler with part number, they ask "you have an account", I say "city of Van", they reply "$39 for you". So I think, ok, so much for wholesale.... I call Napa out of curiosity, similar Maremont muffler is $50 and they have to order it in.
WTF.... why is it always way cheaper to go stateside for stuff? Drives me nuts.
