I have used these in the past:

Look OK when painted with matt black wood burner stove paint.

Alternatively I have a very rough deep one, very rusted, with detached baffle and some holes which might see you through a season. Free if you collect.

Thanks Phillip, interesting suggestions - I guess I can limp along with my existing one for now but your kind offer is very much appreciated.

Thanks everyone else too for your input.

I'm going to wait until either Stationary Engine Parts have more stock or a nice one turns up.

Cheers,
Steve.

EDIT
Just heard from Stationary Engine Parts that they are expecting some more silencers in sometime early September

Default Mac's Retirement

Well folks, here's the real reason for my retirement. After having upset giblets, and needing to stay close to a toilet for three weeks I saw the Doctor. Then after a multitude of often unpleasant hospital tests I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and colon cancer,all in the same week!!
For the colon job they took me into hospital pretty quick, dug a hole,cut out the bad bits (called a right hemicolectomy) sowed me up and sent me home.
The prostate job took a bit longer,thirtyseven zaps of radiotherapy at the Arden Cancer Centre in Coventry with hormone treatment running in parallel,(that nearly turned me into a woman!!)
Results, after a year of checkups and some scans they tell me the colon cancer is cured. With the prostate job, you ask them,they look shifty,mutter something, then say, you've got five to ten years.
Remember folks,when it happens to you, don't let it get you down.
MAC

How nice to hear from the man himself, didn't know you were on here. Like so many of your erstwhile punters, you won't know me but we have shared many a grumble at rallies etc and I certainly miss seeing you about. Wonder where the next generation is who will offer otherwise unobtainable repro parts only to have 'enthusiasts' complain about the price?

Here's hoping the quacks have under-estimated and you make the ton!

NHH

I agree with all what Nick said Mac, you have been missed on the rally scene and sorry to hear of your health issues. Several of my pals have had similar problems in the past couple of years, goes with the ageing process I suppose, but luckily my tests have been negative so far but it is always a worrying time waiting for the results.

Pete.

No apology necessary Pete.

Thanks Mac for showing up so unexpectedly in this thread

Steve.

So with Mac now retired, who will pick up and run with the repro market I wonder? No Lister carb top domes, of which I need a few! No fuel pipe parts nipples, olives etc. and no decent silencers. I think Mac's fuel tanks were one of the best, proper tinplate made and soldered exactly as the originals, in fact I'm sure some of his tanks are being passed off as originals now.
I take my hat off and salute you sir! May you enjoy your retirement.

Mark,

As long as you have a pattern you could easily make most of the items you list yourself on your lathe and I think the domes could be made albeit in two parts first.
