You might want to take the muffler to a muffler shop and see if they have an automotive application that has a side entrance and rear exit. I'm thinking a VW Bug or Bus possibly that had a horizontal muffler. Look for a compact car application where the muffler is basically right behind the rear bumper.

They could use your existing pipe/muffler and use it for a donor for the right connections/flanges, etc.

Might want to check out compact tractor dealers like New Holland. My TC33D has the muffler tucked under the hood, as does my New Holland skid steer loader.

The other option is use your old muffler and splice in an elbow to make it lay flat. The exit would need an elbow or two and an extension to reroute it away from the operator. My only concern is can the exhaust manifold accept any added leverage of the new configuration which could be considerable if it is not supported against something just as immovable as the engine.

Depends upon whether you have the two bolt or three bolt flange on the exhaust elbow. If it's two, you start by taking off the muffler. Then remove the two flange bolts, turn the elbow down instead of up, then bolt it back on the manifold. Then cut the flange off the muffler. Obtain pipe of the same diameter, make the appropriate 90 degree bend to take it under the floorboard, weld the muffler back on. Position the muffler so the heat shield is facing the ground. That should position the angled tip downward as well. If you want a tail pipe, cut the angled tip off the muffler and add pipe as desired.

Side note: you'll find the heat shield under the tractor to be a mixed blessing. Whereas it extends a degree of fire protection, it introduces the potential to be a weed/brush catcher. Some folks remove it because of the latter. The cautious among them replace it with a less aggravating (albeit home made) heat shield.

One possible issue with the change as describe, do you use any implement on the 3 pth with a person riding on it? If so the exhaust fumes can be an issue.



August 16th: WELL OLE EW IS correct this thread is not working correct for me either. The OP post has disappeared and reply is not working on this thread. EW Greg hit the nail on the head and no scar. In many vegetables such planters are still used.

Kenny do you mean what you typed? Standing on the hitch/implement while driving?

In case anyone new to tractors is reading this---this is not advisable to ride on an implement or a drawbar.

My sister (6 yo) and I (8 yo) used to stand on our '46 Farmall A drawbar while mom drove pulling a disc loaded with eight 12x18 cinder blocks for weight. (Why we on there I don't recall---perhaps MORE weight for traction we were both ahhh..."well fed" Laughing out loud). Anyway, mom hit a bump and off my sister went ---face down. The disc pushed her into the soft ground and went over her. She had only a scratch on her forehead (and years of therapy hahaha).

At 14 yo I got my hand wrapped around the PTO drive under the seat. Broke it in 3 places and dislocated my thumb.


EDIT NOTE: for some reason I can't reply--it goes to "tractor summary". Anyway, to answer your last post Gregg, you are correct I'm not invloved in farming anymore. However I live just outside of rural in 3 directions, and my construction yard is in rural land. Maybe farming here is much different therej the only sit or stand on equipment I see is antique and decorates a farmers yard. The farming we do here is corn, wheat, oates, potatoes, soybeans, strawberries, melons, beets, carrots, tomatoes, peppers--the basics. All is done by mechaical means. And much is done in greehouses year round

Picking however can be mechanical, but generally done by migrant help and that is mostly on the other side of the state.

I'm guessing you're not very involved in agriculture EW. There's a pretty fair selection of planting/cultivating/harvesting implements that one or more operator seats. No PTO involved. The tractor just pulls them as the operators do their thing on the implement.
