I assume you mean style/originality wise? If so, I'd think it would depend on which type of silencer it is... do you have a photo of the one you are talking about that you could post?

Hi Martin, the engine is a 1944 B type and the silencer that was on it that I was told was a original but was badly corroded looked a lot like the one in the picture.
Thanks, Bernard.

the style you need is like the Lister D but larger in diameter.

According to old brochures I've seen, some Lister B engines were fitted with a 'double' pepperpot type exhaust (when the exhaust vented upwards). The following link to Peter's website shows the type I'm thinking of. I'm not sure the how close to this the one in the photo you posted looks or is size-wise? What do the others think?

Steamman, yes.

The one Jules shows is the squarer version of your modern one.

I think the original old type ones had three bolts at the bottom of them too?
