Generator Exhaust Spark Arrestor

We had to replace the exhaust on our 89 Winnie Chieftain generator. Any idea where I can get a spark arrestor for the end of the tailpipe?

I just serviced our 7.5 Onan QD and the spark arrestor was between the two mufflers up inside the cabinet. Not sure if this helps or not but I had to unscrew that as part of the service and then start the generator - boy did the carbon fly then.

If you have an Onan generator ..and if you used an Onan muffler...that muffler may also be be a spark arrestor....(The Onan muffler on my 63KW Onan generator is).

Thanks, I thought the arrestor was attached to the exhaust pipe. I was able to maintain the original muffler and feel much better now knowing I am not going to burn down a park somewhere.

Check and see if you can find the plug between the mufflers, PB it and then remove it. Start the genny and make sure you're out of the way!!
