:wave: reece110 Welcome to GTTalk! I'm sure that it could be worked out. If you made a short pipe under the hood and made the stack to slip onto that pipe, it could work. Hopefully someone with a little more familiarity with that tractor and have some other advice for you! We hope that you enjoy the forum! Thanks for signing up!

I wouldn't cut a hole in a good hood! But, it's your tractor.

On heavy equipment we mount stack rigid to the hood. Then allow the pipe under the hood to fit up inside the pipe on the hood. The pipe on the hood would need to be several sizes bigger than the one under the hood. This also causes a venturi affect that draws air from under the hood that tends to keep the pipe a bit cooler and preserving the chrome finish.

With a fiberglass hood, the rigid pipe to hood would end in disaster most definitely. No good way to do it without disabling the hood tilt function.

if your looking at adding more than 1 90degree bend in air flow, your looking at adding too much back pressure too if your not careful...


Ditto on the fiber glass hood thing... I'd say just run it out the side and up. Keeps things original and that's what judges like at shows.

Through the center of the hood would look cool but there is a lot of stuff to take into consideration. I would only do it if I had a spare hood due to value of the John Deere. Second you would have to reinforce the hood to support the stack that is mounted to it. There would be no way to do the stack through the hood with the hood still opening via hinge. You could put hood pins on it to lift the hood straight off.

If you want to do the hinged hood, you would have to hard pipe out of the motor and then mount a second larger stack on the hood(hence the reinforcement) for it to slip down over the hard pipe off of the motor. You would also need to make sure there is enough clearance for the pipes to not hit each other because the vibration would destroy the hood in pretty quick order.

You could do it that way, the whole would have to be a good bit bigger then the pipe and the pipe wouldn't be able to stick too far out. Main issue would be having all the exhaust around at head level.

Just a thought, you could cut like a 1 3/4 hole in the hood. Bring the 1" up to about 1/2" above the hood. Attach a stainless steel collar to dress up the hole. Make the stack of 1 1/4 inch and weld pins opposite each other on the 1" just below the hood. Cut "L" shaped slots in the top stack to make a twist lock system to attach it to the lower 1" stack. Untwist the upper stack to remove and then open your hood. Might take a little head scratching but very doable and if you don't like it you can patch the fiberglass hood very easily.

If you feel the need to cut your hood,then this idea will work. That is how pipe was on my 1956 John Deere crawler. if you don't want it to spin,just cut a slot in the pipe to act as a key way,and weld a piece of key stock on the lower pipe.

I would avoid cutting up the hood. The exhaust port on the 110 is easy enough to get at and only have 1 bend to a vertical exhaust. One more word of caution....make sure the vertical pipe is tall enough so the exhaust isnt blowing in your face.!!
