Located these on Amazon:

Quickun Air Pneumatic Mufflers, 1/4" Male Thread Sintered Bronze Exhaust Muffler Silencer

The 1/4" Thread on these, has the outside diameter
to fit tightly into the Breather Hose.

I am going to try these to see how they do.

Measure the inner diameter of your breather hose. Thought it was closer to approximately a 1/2".



The Inside Diameter of the Carburetor Breather Hose is 1/2".

The Outside Diameter of the 1/4" Thread Air Muffler,
shown in the photo is - 1/2".

1/2" Threads is NOT the same as 1/2" Outside Diameter.

The Outside Diameter(at the threads) of a 1/2" Thread Air Muffler, is 3/4"
