    1025r Exhaust Modifications

    I bought my tractor a couple months ago and haven't had a lot of time to have some fun with it yet, but I didn't like the way the exhaust was blowing back towards me and also leaving soot stains on my new tractor's pretty green paint. I've been following the forum but nothing really thrilled me so I decided to visit a good mechanic friend who makes custom exhaust. In 20 minutes at his shop with the tractor I had what I wanted. It goes in front of the axles and faces down and doesn't rub against the tire. I finished it off with a standard 1 1/2" muffler clamp. Before I did the final install I painted it with high temp paint from a local hardware store. So far I've used it and I've been happy with the results, but time will tell. The best part is all I owe a friend is lunch! It pays to know good people with the right equipment! See the pics below!

    Looks really nice! For a second I got pretty excited and thought he had used a V-Band clamp setup

    Nice mod. Does the increase in pipe make any difference in engine performance? I found a 1.5" x 3" turn down on EBay that worked really well. Never understood Deere's reasoning for how they designed the muffler along with that little stub for the locking differential. Some of their engineering is skeptic. Still a very good tractor but they could clean some things up.

    To be honest I never even gave that a thought? I only have 6 hours on the tractor so far and an hour or so since the new pipe. I haven't noticed any change in performance , but it's nice not having the diesel fumes blowing me back in my face.

    I am sure the engineers come up with great designs and then the budget analysts get a hold of it and it becomes something less than planned!
