Flush muffs

Can anyone recommend a set of flush muffs for a 15hp Johnson 2 stroke OB.

I have these at the moment

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180750285160?redirect=mobile


But they don't work for some reason.

They are single sided muffs so do I need double ones maybe?

Thanks

They'll work, they work on my 115hp - make sure they are tight when you start the engine and they're in the right position.

As said they will work !, just keep those muffs tight - I use them on my 50 , 30 & 25 ....same as the link.

I squash my muffs every so often to keep them tight.....

( Sorry its been a long day ...... I'll get my coat...)

Thanks.

I shall have another go.

I did notice a lot of water escaping from the cups so maybe they were not tight enough.

Cable tie the arms together to add tension.

Short of the wheel, cable ties are the greatest invention ever! Used thousands of the things over the years for repairs or fixtures to just about everything.

Another option is a garbage can. Much quieter if you have neighbors. Also better for tuning since you can hear the motor better.

With that said I use a similar but much older set of muffs. Actually I have two pairs. Leakage is normal. Just make sure the motor is peeing enough.

Thanks Peter.

I use a dustbin (uk version of garbage can) at the moment but I want to put my doel fins back on so with them on it won't fit.
