    Good deal Orval!! If your up for a little tinkering project, you can't go wrong with a preheater. Whiter, brighter, longer lasting smoke is typically the result. Here's an idea for a simple preheater using brass pressure nipples threaded into opposite sides of the muffler and then solder a length of copper tubing a bit longer than the overall distance once threaded into the muffler. Solder the exposed copper tube end to the tip of the pressure fitting. The photo shows the components external, but the actual tube would travel through the muffler. Think of it as a single pass heat exchanger.
