  • 1954 NAA Exhaust
  • I need a new muffler and I was going to go with the vertical exhaust pipe with a rain cap. When looking at pictures I see where some have no muffler and hook the vertical exhaust pipe to the elbow off the manifold. This is my first tractor, I guess I'm looking at the pros and cons of each setup.

    Thank you

  • Plan on the vertical pipe eventually hitting a low-hanging limb. It will happen, so it is better if there is a weak spot built into the system near where it comes out from under the hood. Try to make sure that the top part can bend and even snap completely off without breaking anything else. Hopefully you are paying attention and see this happening before the stinkin-hot pipe hits you on the noggin. If you wear leather work gloves the stack can be twisted off and tossed to the side to cool off. If you weren't knocked silly, and can remember where this happened and where you tossed the pipe it's a lot easier to reinstall the vertical pipe than having to rebuild everything.

  • A muffler is more mass to keep stabilized... NO muffler is not recommended for your Ears...

    Vertical is nicer working behind the tractor hooking up implements, etc..

    Low branches are not the friend of vertical...

  • Thank you, I see Yesterday Tractors sells a muffler delete with a vertical pipe and rain cap. I think that is the way I'm going.

  • Straight pipes aren't that bad, you'll be alright.
