1300L Exhaust

I have two related questions: What is the "muffler" looking thing close to my exhaust manifold? Is it some kind of water fording water moving prevention thing?? The second question is - Has anyone just ran a pipe from the exhaust manifold to a stack? ...without a muffler, or with a minimal muffler? I've seen some fancy muffler/stack contraptions on the internet, but I'm going for simple. Thanks for any input you can offer.

It will be quite noisy without a muffler, and right next to the window as well.

Turbo or non turbo? The turbo model can go straight pipe if you don’t care about a little extra noise. Non turbo would be obnoxious though. I opted for a muffler on my turbocharged 1300L to make it civilized.

unfortunately a non turbo

Unfortunately, it's a non turbo. I was unaware that that made a difference... Does anyone know what the additional muffler looking thing under the hood is??

Picture would help. Being a non turbo you will want a decent muffler with several significant bends to bring the right level and tone of exhaust sound.

I'll try to post a picture in a few days when I get back home. I figured it was a common thing on the 435 115 so that someone would immediately know what it was.....It's a canister of sorts, probably 6 inches in diameter, about 1.5 feet long, right where the exhaust exits the exhaust manifold....rusty steel.

I believe that these photos show the Can on the exhaust.

Wow, I have honestly never seen that can before. The one pic makes it look like it could be an exhaust brake though. It has an actuator very near it.

I'm not sure how common this can is. I went through a lot of BW U1300L photos, looking under the hood on the Driver's side, and didn't really see it. These are the only four photos that I have dredged up so far.

I think that there is an Exhaust Brake there, but it is it's own layer between the manifold and the can. The can is a separate deal, I reckon.

A separate weird deal.

I don't think it has anything to do with the Fording system, but it might- just a variation that does not seem to be widely used?

Most all Military U1300L's have the Fording option installed, and this can is not there....

Another mystery.

It's just a muffler, I think Pre-muffler for the muffler muffler maybe :

Says it's also applicable to these SA Codes, so maybe it's only Unimogs with those codes:

That's this puppy, if you are wondering (that blade looks like fun):
