Yeah, you really don't want to mod a cat muffler. Better to get a non-catalytic muffler and go from there.

It's actually very hard to remove the CAT from the muffler. Take it off and check it out. Short of splitting the muffler and re-welding it, your option would be to ruin a few drill-bits.
I was able to hacksaw out the inner pipe (difficult) that routes exhaust from the front side of the muffler, through the CAT and back out the top port. So the exhaust goes into the back half of the muffler (closest to the cylinder) and out the top exhaust port. I also added a second exhaust port on the side.

Honestly, a $20 aftermarket muffler would have been alot easier to deal with, and actually, most AM options are less restrictive than the OEM ones, CAT or not. There's a great big baffle in there on both mufflers, again, hard to remove short of drilling.

So I feel like I have had a pretty good look for a serial number on the 044/046 with no luck. Can I get a pic of someone elses to see exactly where it is please? I got the carb adjusted and found it wouldnt idle with the bar and chain on it, as well as the chain never stopped, found a clutch spring off and stretched. I had another whole clutch/drum etc off a 441 and swapped the whole thing out, problem solved. Just trying to sharpen the pile of chains I have sorted to fit saws I have running.

Per the Stihl saw site:
Quote
Where do I find my serial number?
Most serial numbers are stamped in the motor housing or crankcase to the left or right of the muffler looking down from the top on a flat surface. They will in most cases be 9 digits long and begin with the number 1, 2 or 5.

Also Google "Stihl saw serial number location" and you will see several hits and pics.
