Products for the Model "A" Ford


 picture [Image] Permatex Muffler Sealer
Used between the manifold and the muffler inlet pipe to make a tight seal.
Price $6.00 each.

Use this muffler sealer to make a good seal at the 45º flare where it fits to the manifold. Dampen both surfaces with a sponge, apply a good coating all around on one surface, about 1/16Ē thick. At this point you should have the tail pipe clamp installed, but loose. Using a jack, gently push the muffler against the Manifold. Be sure the alignment looks good front to back. Then install the muffler clamp and tighten. Release the jack, and wait over night before starting the engine.

After starting and warming up, re-tighten the muffler clamp. This should be the last time you have to make any adjustments. Donít forget to snug up but not tight the tail pipe clamp, just enough so there is no rattle.


Below are some of the products we manufacture at our facility in Southern Oregon.

1928 muffler

From the start of production in 1927 until March of 1929, this style of muffler (shown on left) was used on all Model A Fords. The overall height of the inlet pipe is 1" shorter and it is specially bent to provide additional clearance around the motor mount. Otherwise, the muffler is the same as the later production version.
See pdf enlarged version to read dimensions on drawing.

Part No. A-5230-AR - $245 plus shipping.

The dyno test confirmed that this standard and Original Ford design muffler will work perfectly on engines up to 85 horsepower.

Available in black painted steel or Stainless Steel. Read more

High Performance Muffler

We have modified the internal baffling of this muffler to provide a flow-through equivalent to a 2 ¼" round pipe. The inlet pipe being 2" inside-diameter, this means there is very little restriction in the muffler. Ford originally designed this muffler with a 1 ¾" inside-diameter rear tail pipe. We are finding that because the exhaust gases cool as they flow through the muffler, the smaller tail pipe works just fine, as the exhaust gases have cooled sufficiently to take up much less space. All gases (oxygen, nitrogen and carbon monoxide) expand or contract dramatically with only small changes in temperature. Available in black painted steel or Stainless Steel. Read more

Part No. A-5230-HPBS - black painted - $265 plus shipping.
Part No. A-5230-HPSS - stainless steel - $360 plus shipping.

Station Wagon / AA Truck Muffler [Image]

The Station Wagon and AA need a longer tailpipe to deflect exhaust out the rear of the vehicle. This is our standard painted steel muffler which has a rear extension welded to the rear of the muffler. This muffler will work with the A-5255-B tail pipe below. This muffler will also work on a AA truck, see link below for details on various AA muffler and tail pipe configurations. At this time we do not sell any AA tail pipe extensions, but the link has details on various types.

Part No. AA-5320-A - $189 plus shipping.

Station Wagon / AA Truck Tail Pipe Extension Kit

In January of 1931 Ford Motor Company made a recommendation to retrofit a longer tailpipe to all Station Wagons for safety purposes. The longer tailpipe keeps exhaust fumes from getting into the passenger compartments. If buying a new Aries muffler we will provide the short tail piece welded to the muffler, the new tailpipe, all clamps to attach it and the special spring bar. If you already have an Aries muffler, we will provide all of the items above and you will have to cut off the existing tail pipe and weld on the small piece we provide. This modification will only fit on an original equipment muffler or an Aries Muffler.

Our kit includes the tailpipe extension, three clamps, a rear spring clip and all bolts. We also include a rear muffler extension which must be welded to the rear of the muffler after the tailpipe is removed. If buying a new Aries muffler, we will weld this extension for you. Tailpipe may need modification if used with a non-standard length muffler.

Part No. A-5255-B - $110 plus shipping.
