  11. I think you've answered your own question. they look like quick detachable mufflers. could have been farm use. they do look home made. and why would someone save them if they didn't work??

  15. Thats what I was thinking when I saw them too. How far do the baffles go in? Do they twist as they go down?

    Those are glasspack blanks with tabs welded on. I used to buy 6 at a time. I can't tell you why a stub tubing connector was never welded on the ends so that it could be clamped on. The blanks were sold to muffler shops so that the shop did not need to stock hundreds of mufflers. They could weld on the nipples at the required angles. I have no idea what they were working on but that is what they are.
