Default OS .46 fx muffler

Today, i was flying and suddenly the muffler kind of exploded!
The assembly screw of the muffler broke and the exhaust outlet with cone baffle flew from the plane! Luckily I found the exhaust outlet and the broken assembly screw.
Now I need replacement parts:
I need the Cone Baffle and Muffler Assembly Screw with the locknut!

Tower only sells the muffler assembly screw, but where can i get the cone baffle for os .46 fx?

Can I order both parts directly from you?

We're sorry, but O.S. doesn't make the muffler baffle availalble as a separate item. You can run without it, but you'll be a bit louder.

Hey after I have about 1 gallon throught an engine, I take the cone baffle out. The plane flies better, faster, and the noise difference isn't all that much. Happy flying!!!

For about $13 you can order the Tower muffler and it will give you about 500 more rpms. A good and inexpensive alternative.
