Yes, the muffler makes the engine quieter some, and makes the exhaust go out the rear of the Cub.
I'm not sure if you meant it has a muffler or not.
Below is a listing for a new muffler at TM Tractor Parts, you can look at the pics.
The pipe at the rear of the muffler has a cut made in the bottom side, near the rear of the pipe, to direct the exhaust down.
The muffler uses a clamp to hold it to a bracket at the front of the transmission.
Below is a listing for that.
The under axle exhaust came out in late 1954, at Cub serial number 185001.
The Fast Hitch came out then too, and the hood and grille were changed, with the metal names on the sides, and the metal IH emblem on the front.
The exhaust pipe looks like in the listing below.
