Looks great. My Ford 9N has the exhaust the same way, works great except in tall dry grass. Started a fire with it once! A spark arrestor would have stopped it, if I had had one.

That should work! You don't have a mower deck, so it's not in the way of that.

Running it that way will give it that "50's" feel and I think it will really look good..

 Ran & got Chinese for lunch today.  Swung by TSC & got a small Ford muffler for the HD-12.  Smaller than the oval & will tuck in nicely just under the footrests.  $27, but will last my lifetime, so not bad.  Will need to have a pipe bent for the 90 degree turn this week if I get time.

If it does get too warm, I can get some of that self stick heat shield to place under the footrest.  :thumbs:

Yep, that'll work. It'll be nice getting the exhaust away from your face too.

Once I got the shop halfway straightened up this morning, I stole a little time to work on the HD-12.  I removed the heater hose loop from the water pump and plugged one hole.  Then I found a temp sender adapter that fit the fan switch, so installed it there.  I had intended to put it in the radiator, but the threads didn't match and I didn't want to mess with the aluminum radiator & damage it.  I started it & let it run while I did more shop cleaning till she got to full temps and the fan cycled perfectly.  On at 195, off about 180.

Since deciding to go with the electric fan instead of engine driven fan, it was time to get it mounted.

I found an oil filter that was shorter to fit my remote adapter, but there's still not enough room due to the steering drag arm to just drill holes in the chassis & fit it out of sight.  So looks like I'll have to add a 2" tall piece of metal on the top edge of the frame to bolt it up to.

Glad you are getting some therapy. Been watching the weather, might get nasty your way before long. Be safe!

Forgot to add....the electric fan will not hardly be noticeable at all once the grill is in.

Sure looks good Daniel. I really like how the grill hides the fan.

I'm sure it'll look Ok, adding to the frame for the filter, but I just thought I'd ask, if there is any

other place to mount it? Just in case the grey matter is a bit numb from all the other

goings on. :thumbs:

Any room for the filter on the inside side of the dash tower?

Well, I've not really looked past where the hoses will reach.  Trying to keep this as low buck as possible, so I don't want to have to buy new hoses, but I'll check it out further.
