I believe that is normal for the Hydros to make some noise while pushing them. Its been a while since I worked on one so hopefully someone who has a hydrostatic will be able to verify the noise.

Thanks for the information about the tranny noise! Also it looks like I will be needing a brake controle arm if anyone happens to have one stashed with their other valubles, or some direction as to where one could be had. :smile1: The 90 degree elbow on my exaust was stripped out, is this just natural gas piping or do I need to look somewhere else? I have about one third of the tractor torn appart, It seems the more I learn the more parts I remove?????:D
Whats up with that!

The exhaust piping and elbows should be standard galvanized threaded pipe. You should be able to pick it up at H/D or an Ace Hardware. If I'm correct, gas piping has left hand threads.

I think he meant natural gas pipe. It has right handed threads.
It is a little better to use black pipe over galvanized because of the zinc coating fumes.

zinc fumes cant be too bad, the worst idea i ever had was gorilla gluing my h14 muffler together when it broke on a seam. worked, but you couldnt stand the smell. so i let it idle for 12 hours and it burned on, the stink went away.

zinc fumes cant be too bad, ...


Yes and no. If you are talking about using galvanized for the exhaust you are probably correct. But for welding or cutting galvanized with a torch, that's a horse of a different color.

V. HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION


Effects of Over Exposure:


To the best of our knowledge the acute and chronic toxicity of this substance is not fully known. Zinc is generally of low toxicity. Heated metal may evolve zinc fume and oxide causing "Zinc Shakes". Zinc fumes may cause metal fume fever. Effects include dry throat, metallic taste, chest pain, dyspnea, rales and dry cough. Several hours later, chills may occur with lassitude, malaise, fatigue, headache, back pain, muscle cramps, blurred vision, nausea, fever, perspiration, vomiting and leukocytosis.


Acute and Chronic Effects:


Inhalation: Irritation of upper respiratory tract, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, chills, fever, aching muscles.
Ingestion: Headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, gastrointestinal irritation.
Skin: Prolonged contact may cause dermatitis.
Eye: Powder is irritating to eyes.


Target Organs: Respiratory system, lungs, pulmonary system, skin.
Primary Routes of Entry: Inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, eye contact.

I've had to cut galvanized with a torch on occasion, and it's NOT pleasant. Fortunately, it was usually outside where I could stand upwind from it, and was never more than a cut or two. Even that was uncomfortable.

In my younger days I worked at a company that built water irrigation equipment. I cut galvinized pipe ten to twelve hours a day. The only protection I had was a face shield. I remember deeling with some of the symtoms oldbuzzard wrote about. But young and dumb covers alot of sin!!!! :)
If I wanted to seal the joints on my new exaust? do they make like a plumbers tape or somthing?? Or is it even nesessary?
