I had to take my hood off so it won't get to hot inside,, I going to custom my muffler so it will be on the outside,, The muffler is the main thing that make my 195 hotter inside I think,, But I been useing my 195 when its 90 or better outside an that will get em hotter with covers on,, I going to try an cut out my side pannels like skyrydr2 did his,, That look sharp,,,,,

Thought long and hard about the over heating issue. Looked through the collection and found this.

It an old header for a VW. Did this to it.

Cut a peice of pipe.

Welded it up.

It's a tight fit, but there is a quarter of an inch minimum clearance.

While I was at it, I took care of another possible heat issue. There was a gap between the shelf above the muffler and the motor.

Ran the machine tonight. Extra pipes made it quieter, Hope it works to keep the motor cooler.

Next, mow the yard tomorrow, Hopefully with the side panels and not UGLY.

Kubota D600, its a sweetheart! I absolutely adore my 165, it is powerful, smooth as silk and a real pleasure to operate . Hottest it has ever registered on the temp gage was 210 and that was mowing , too that seems to be the worst thing it does ? Tilling doesn't bother it and anything else I use it at maybe 1/4 throttle.
I like your pipes they look awesome! Get some header wrap and wrap the muffler and pipes too, it will also cut down the heat .; )

Neat exhaust! I think Keith's wrap idea might help some more. Don't want to cook the PTO.

Well she mowed purrddeee today.

IMG_0972.JPG


Mowed for 1 1/2 hours, no issues. Temp 77 degrees. Opened hood after shut down. Still plenty warm in there. Had heat soak issues after shutdown, would not start ten minitues later without dumping gas down carburator, I believe the gas vaporized after shutdown. Think I will be looking for the exhaust wrap. Does anyone know if a cover is missing from this area?

Seems like a lot of hot air is entering right next to carb and intake.

Thanks Russ,
I bet there is suppost to be one on the other side also. Thought it was funny that there was nothing between the exhaust manifold and the intake manfold on mine. Will have to make a shield for both sides. I did not reach in to see how hot the PTO/belt was getting, figured it must be cooler than having the exhaust dump directly on it. Hard to tell from photo, but there is +1 inch clearance between belt and exhaust pipe.

By the way, I seen some engine side panels/tins on E-bay the other day. Search Kohler K532 Engine.
