First let me say, welcome to the site! Glad to have you here! As far as exhaust pipe, you can be as fancy or as plain as you want. I recently put and exhaust on my '75 power king and I just used 1" pipe. If you are going to make something simple, and want something easy it works good but anything to complex and it starts to look ugly.

Anything that I've put exhaust on, has all been a flange mount system. Muffler shop makes the bend(s) in whatever tubing size and radius I want and I weld it together, along with the mounting bracket. :thumbs:

If you use threaded fittings dont forget the lock nuts! We watched a young man almost break into tears at a pull when he stopped the tractor at the end of the pull his stack proceeded to spin forward and hit the ground, threaded fitting, no locknut.
