Circulator 2-Muffler Tweak

This morning I drilled a 1/4 inch hole in the end of the tongue muffler that fits my S.T G34H engine. This way, I will be able to squirt some fuel directly into the exhaust port (in the old days we called this giving it a "shot in the head") without removing the muffler. This modification should solve the difficult starting problem I have been having with this motor. Of course the engine will be a little louder with the 1/4 inch hole in the end of the muffler. But it won't be as loud as it would be without any muffler at all. And the muffler will produce a little less back pressure, which is a good thing.
