Hi,
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. :)

I have vertical exhaust. I have run it without and with the muffler. The muffler does quite it some but not that much. It's not like you truck running it with and without a muffler. There is usually a drastic difference in that, but not so much with this tractor.

From the emblem description, sounds like it could be a late ‘54 to early ‘58 with polished stainless steel emblems.

Engine in good condition with great tune up will start when it's very cold outside.

Winterize; antifreeze, Marine Stabil in the gasoline, battery tender installed, stored under cover. I try to start my Cub once a month during winter, on a warmer day to keep the battery charged. No battery tender were Cub is stored.
I have an excuse. CRS.

If it's properly tuned, and your gas is good, you should have no problems. Mine has a mag so even if the batt is dead, usually 1 or 2 cranks, 1 with the choke on, then 2 with it off and she'll fire up.
Why is there never enough time to do the job right, but always enough time to do it over. :?:

If you have to add antifreeze to a thermo-siphon system, be sure to mix it with the water in a bucket before you put it in the radiator. With no water pump it won’t mix well in the system unless it is run a long time.
