Ok guys I have a problem with a OS 46 silencer mounting problem....I have just bought a Great Planes AT-6 Texan, the problem I have is the mounting of the silencer, the cowl fits over the engine which is fine, but the problem comes when the silencer needs to fitted, i would have to "hack" most of the firewall away to get it in, and as the firewall is the stuctural part of the fuse, and I don't really want to do that.
So I suppose the question would be, is there another type of silencer i could use? I know OS do a extention between the silencer and engine, I still think that would need some hacking.......the photo that comes with the instructions shows a double exhaust system that seems to come down at 90 degrees to the engine....So am I missing something? (my brain, not in the kit) or does anyone know where I could buy such a piece of engineering?
Thanks for your help .........fingers crossed on this one.

|I think that OS make an outlet extension piece, or you could try one of the aftermarket add-on exhaust systems intended for cowled engines.|

Try Just Engines
Not cheap, but they may have something that will fit.

|the BCM Pitts style mufflers from Just Engines are excellent for installing in a radial cowl, they can be used with a retaining strap, or JE will drill and tap to suit a particular engine. They also do their own JE Pitts mufflers, slightly more bulky where they bolt on to the manifold, otherwise not much to choose between them Just Engines Pitts|
