 Exhaust points forward

The exhaust points forward on my B7100 and I was wondering if anyone has either turned it vertical or put an extension on it to run out the back. The way it is, I end up with diesel exhaust smell on my clothes.

 Exhaust points forward

I think there may be some very old discussion in the archives but I don't recall the details. My 1710 exhaust is vertical and to the side and my wife is still happier when I air jackets and coveralls in the porch before bringing them inside. I think that if the exhaust exits in front of the operator then diesel smell just goes with the territory.

This morning I read a comment on the antique board. Somebody said that an old Ford farm tractor with horizontal exhaust warms up faster than the same model with vertical exhaust. The context was that the hydraulics could be used faster when it's cold if the tractor has horizontal exhaust. Just a comment, but I guess exhaust rerouting could affect engine performance. Nothing was said if a tractor with horizontal exhaust was any more prone to overheating under heavy loads during the summer.

You can unbolt it and run it vertical without any trouble. Many of them we sold had to be that way for the farmer blood. Some have just added another piece of pipe to it to get it away from the tractor a little further.

I think Tom is right.

When you are sitting three feet away from an exhaust port it matters little which way it points. Seems like you are just working in the exaust cloud.

I had a B7100D & like Art said it could be mounted horizontally or vertically as the flange between the exhaust stack and manifold was square. I rotated mine down to avoid hitting tree branches & don't really remember breathing fumes all that much.
