Hey there.

Next project on my list is to sort out my exhaust back to 'sorta' stock. I do not like how it is so close to the operator's position, especially when my kids will be on the machine. Can someone post some detailed pictures of a stock system? Especially how the pipe fitting goes into the block and then connects to the muffler pipe? Thank you.

You can do it like this with Pipe fittings but I do not have any measurements.The link above has a Cad drawing of the original Muffler and pipe which are NLA.

Ha! the house is three years old and my single bay (which is plenty stained) has a busted compact tractor sitting in it so we had to make room in the hallway for this project.

Well, here's what we came up with. Not pretty, but it cost me the price of a 1" pipe union to build (the rest either came with the tractor or came out of the scrap pile!). I forgot to pivot the axle before mounting the muffler, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that it clears. It is really small in diameter and close to the frame, so I don't think it will be a problem.

If I may comment on your'e system ,,,,, there seems to be no room for vibrations.. I too have galvenized pipe comming from engine..

 

A  1 3/4" from engine head  male thread.. ( I think thats the size )  to a 45 degree  elbow,, then another  2" peice,, Male to male- Then a 2" diamiter muffler pipe to the muffler out to the front..Where the front of the muffler attatches,, I have a small spring looped around the muffler outlet,,then attatched to the mounting bracket...This gives room for vibrations and engine movement..Hope I explained it and hope you figure it out...

Ya, I was wondering about that. I know the engine has isolation mounts so it can flex, but I'm unsure as to how much it will move. One thing I have going for me is that the front mounting tab on the muffler is very 'weak' - only 1/8" x 1/2" flat bar, so I am hoping it will move a little there. If things start cracking, I'll have to redesign it. Can you post a pic of your setup?
