Hi Guys I have a John Deere 50 NF tractor with a bad exhaust manifold on it. It is a very common defect on the old two cylinder two and 3 numbered series tractors. example 50 - 520 - 530
I would like ideas from someone who has replaced or repaired their two cylinder manifold. Ideas such as what replacement procedures are best - alternative repair ideas - pit falls of the job - what parts have to be removed in order to get old manifold out and new manifold back in - should I remove the gas tank? I have put this job off long enough and I am going to do it. Old tractors are a pain to repair, but it sure feels good to make a good and successful repair.
as always thanks for your help and advice. Klink
