Default Amanco Hired Man exhaust thread

Have done a search but come up with nothing specific.
Does anybody know the size and thread of the exhaust port on my Hired Man?
Cheers
Steve

NPT

Don't know what's going on with the s/ware; it won't allow me to write my 1st post in caps.

P.S. My post was a question; are you sure BSP and not NPT?

Thanks for the replies. I was wondering if I could fit a silencer from another engine for when it runs at home and return it to original if I ever show it?

Any ideas gratefully accepted. I seen some small canister type silencers for Petters on fleabay and was thinking maybe one of those might keep the noise to an acceptable level.

The existing exhaust is basically an open pipe with a cap over the top.

There's not much that will make an Amanco exhaust acceptable! It would be worth, however, making sure you've got the right "genuine" exhaust. I wouldn't faff around with others; if you restrict the exhaust you'll just increase the engine temperature.

The answer is obvious - don't run it at home; get yourself booked into some local shows! You'll soon get into the swing, meet some folk, have fun - and do it some more...

Amanco's are noisy, it's part of their charisma .

If you want a quite engine to run at home get a Wolseley WD2 .

This is a picture taken by the seller but it does the job. You can see the exhaust fitted which I think is the original type from all pictures I have seen. It appears to be just a length of pipe fitted with a dome which has a 1/4 space all round the top between the dome halves. Nothing inside it anywhere.
