    Muffler attachment on LX176

    I have a '97 LX176 with Kawasaki LC420V engine (14 hp single cyl). Just got it and it's in very good shape. The muffler is dangling from the exhaust pipe. There's a bracket that looks like it may attach to the OHV cover bolt but it won't reach. Is this muffler supposed to just attach at the engine block with its flange only? Doesn't seem right to me but can't see another clear way to secure it. Any help is really appreciated!

    According to the parts breakdown it's supposed to attach at both the flange and the mounting bracket. Perhaps you have the wrong muffler? Can you upload a pic?

    According to this pic I snatched off the net the muffler should bolt on just below the valve cover.
