Default Muffler leak

I need help fixing my exhaust, I have a bad exhaust leak. The muffler sits nice and snug on the muffler elbow, but the flange on the exhaust is broken off and the hole is deformed. I've heard to cut the top off an aluminum can and wrap it around the muffler to seal it. Any other tips? TIA.

Diagram of how it's like on the elbow:





Before you yell at me for excluding the baffle, it's broken and I don't want to break it further. It'll be welded soon, but I need the tractor out from its corner behind a bale.

Muffler is broken. Missing a piece. Get another one. You won't stop that leak.

That's part of the problem, the other part is probably that I'm using a 1.5" clamp on a 1" outlet. I need a new clamp. Even if the muffler was fine I'd still need a new clamp because the original one has the one side snapped off.

Edit- Isn't the outlet 1.5"? I could get a 1.5" clamp, and I think the one I'm using is actually 2", from a JD 318.

Get a new muffler and the correct clamp. If you are going to go with a "cobble job" then you are on your own.

BTW: Aluminum can...........Bad Idea.

Coop,
Step 1: Read and learn.
Step 2: Open mouth.

If you are successful at step 1, you don't need step 2.

You guys are mixing up a type of tape, with a brand name of tape.

Yes, like if you say to store clerk, "Where's the Scotch tape?" , they know you mean cellophane tape. Or if you "Google" something everybody on the planet knows what you mean, but they might not if you say "I Gigablast'ed it".

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
