View Full Version : 1992 ACTY Muffler
01-25-2009, 09:16 PM
I just bought a 1992 ACTY and took it for a drive down the highway. The muffler blew out the casing. Is there a aftermarket replacement available? I noticed it has serveral warm air tubes coming off of it. It's cold in Medicine Hat, Alberta, so I need something kinda stock to retain these warm air tubes. Any thoughts?

I would swear that a muffler off of a Honda 4 wheeler might work. Might have to get a hold of Mighty Milt or Greg0187 they might know.

New mufflers here in Japan run about $200 for the Acty. Problem is the exchange rate from dollar to yen is really bad now for parts. Shipping can run high.

Here are some pics of a stock HA4 muffler assembly without the heat shields
as shown below.
There are two aftermarket styles I found - The first one has the pre-heat pipes on it, the second does not.
And the other style
The preheat hoses are important for heating the air to the carb in the winter especially with you
being in Alberta. :eek: Not sure why there are to different styles of mufflers for the HA4 but maybe
one of the Japan based members can fill us in.
I would probably try some of the forum sponsors as a first try, start with the ones closest to you in Canada
and then work your way down South and see who has the best price on shipping to you in Alberta

There are 4 types for the Honda. Best way is to check by your complete VIN number or you will get the wrong version (Murfys law). Your vin number is under the seat and starts with a HA4-123456 (example). Your better off to find one in the US/Canada as shipping from Japan is extream right now.

I got one from this guy http://rockymountainimports.net/ The muffler for my 1988 wasn't too expensive (about $230), but the exhaust pipe (the piece from the manifold to the muffler) was special order and set me back $600. YMMV

That's the basic idea, but I have no idea whether or not it's the exact one for the truck under discussion.

How did you post these pictures like this?
01-28-2009, 09:57 PM
To insert pictures like above:
1. I used the service provided by Kevin [site admin] see thread here (http://www.minitrucktalk.com/showthread.php?t=3474) or actual site http://www.imagelinky.com/
2. Way easier if you open up a seperate window/ tab with the imagelinky site in one and the forum in another window/ tab.
This way you can toggle back and forth between the two and it makes copy/paste a snap.
3. At the imagelinky site use the "browse" button to go the place on your computer where your pictures are stored.
Select the picture you want to upload, then use the "Upload" button. It will generate three different links.
4. Use the bottom "Forum Link" do a copy and paste, by this I mean use your mouse to highlight the whole link by holding down the left mouse button and scrolling over it.
It should now be highlighted, push the right mouse button and select "copy"
**Make sure you get all the link when highlighting or it won't work**
The link should look like this except that I left the outer brackets off  so you could see it
5. In your post put the blinking cursor where you would like the picture to be and then use the right mouse button and select "paste"
6. You should now have the link like the above example in your post [exect the # will be different.
If you use "Preview Post" you should see the picture in it -sometimes it takes a second to load from the server.
If you just see the link above and no picture then something got missed. :frustration:
If you see the picture time to celebrate :cool:
If it still doesn't make sense to anybody they can PM me and I will try my best to help you out.

Every time I hit the right click, the highlighted part vanishes. My computor is evil.:frustration:

Partly my fault.
You need to keep the cursor over top over the highlighted area
or you don't get the copy option when doing the right click.
Sorry about that.
Sometimes it hard to xplain when you just do it on auto pilot :D

I sometimes think That when I am trying to do something on the computor. I should hook up one side to my mini and the other side to my Dodge 2500 and put it in low 4 wheel drive and hit the.............................................GA S!!!!!
