GM 4106 Engine Removal

Part 1; Installing new muffler on a GM PD4106 Bus Conversion
Part 1; After installing a new, higher HP Detroit Diesel 8V71 engine, I
determined that the buses original muffler with it's 3.5" outlet is too
small. It was designed to be quiet, but it doesn't flow enough for this
new engine. Part 2 will show the new muffler installed!
