Has anyone done a pratical exhaust run to the rear of the tractor?  I have a '73 Jim dandy and between the deck and the brake rods there is not a lot of room to keep it under the tractor.  I would like to keep it all pipe, no flex tube.  If you have done it and have pictures that would be GREAT!

Thanks

Have you ever seen the exhaust systems for the 8N they have at TSC? Every time I see it I always think about getting one to try it.

I have one on a 1978  PK 1614 .  I used the pipe and muffler combination designed for a Massey Ferguson 35 .

Actually quite easy to install  with pipe fittings and  a hanger on the back. As I recall  I had to make an adjustment to the pipe with a big hammer to make it hang straight down from the engine.  It doesn't really make it any quieter especially if you have certain implements mounted on the rear that bounce the sound  right back up to the driver. I think the next one I change I will try a muffler for a Farmall  Cub  or a Farmall A, whichever has the right diameter. A muffler for an Allis Chamlers  B or C might be the right dia also.  Probably try one on the 24/1_  I'm rebuilding.

I used black pipe to make a stack that looked great but I was deaf by the time I got done mowing.  All I'll really be doing is mowing so how does it sound with nothing back there?  Would I be better off with the exhaust out the front.  I already have the pipe dropped straight down by the bell/flywheel (45 from engine toward the dash and then a 90 straight down) so now I just have to use 45's or 90's to get where I want.  I'll have to check the exhausts out at TSC.

Would this

444083899

 

be louder than

023558299

 

I'm thinking the first may be more compact and maybe the threads will match the pipe threads??

The first one you posted is very small, and I am pretty sure that muffler has 3/4 threads, and the K series engines have a 1 inch hole.

Ryan,

Thanks.  I didn't look at the specs since I just did a quick search.  Any opion on putting it low and up front?  I would think I should put it behind the bumper so I do not hit anything.  I'm just looking for the quitest option that is small enough to fit and not get in the way of anything.

Thanks again everyone

That may work, but I am not sure if it will clear when you have an attachment on it. If I remember correctly your tractor is a Jim Dandy, not a 1612? That would have the channel frame? I am not sure off the top of my head what the mounts on those look like exactly, but I think it will clear.

I'm not sure but that looks like it may get in the way of the deck.  That's pretty much the idea I was looking for.  I'll just have to work out getting everything to fit.  Has he mad any comments on how loud or quiet it is?

Thanks

Hard to tell since it is a video but that seems pretty quiet!  Thanks a lot.
