AA Muffler Installations Overview

An AA muffler installation included the inlet pipe clamp, muffler with integrated inlet pipe and integrated or separate outlet pipe, and support brackets/adapters. While all AA muffler installations used unique bracket supports and/or adapters, the standard A-5230 A chassis muffler was used on the majority of AA131‘s.

Closed body types for the 131-1/2″ wheel base were fit with an AA-5230¬†muffler and a separate outlet pipe starting in April 1931. All of the AA157 installations used muffler AA-5230 and a separate outlet pipe. The AA-5230 muffler was the same as the A chassis muffler but had no outlet pipe. The AA112 Standrive chassis used muffler AA-5231 which had a unique integrated inlet pipe and no outlet pipe.

There were three muffler installation for the AA131, four muffler installations for the AA157, and one muffler installation for the AA112.
