    Exhaust extension for 2305

    After all the snow we've had lately I decided that it was time to check over and clean up my 2305. The left side of the 47 blower was black from diesel exhaust after moving all the heavy, white, wet stuff lately. After washing and drying the tractor I started thinking about some of the threads I'd read lately about re-routing the exhaust. I looked at some of the solutions other members used and decided to go into my plumbing parts bucket to see if I could come up with something that would work for me.

    I decided to use a 1 1/4" female threaded to 1" copper reducer, a length of heavy wall 1" copper tubing and a 45* copper elbow. I bored the reducer threads out using a 1 1/4" hole saw and finished the bore to a clean, snug fit over the exhaust pipe using a small sanding drum on my Dremel. I then slipped the 1" copper tubing through the reducer to act as an internal sleeve within the exhaust pipe. This is a perfect fit to the I.D. of the exhaust pipe and also stabilizes the extension. I then added the 45* elbow to the end of the short length of 1" copper and test fitted the pipe extension. I marked, drilled and tapped the hex of the reducer for a couple of 1/4" set screws. I sweated the pieces together and test fit to the tractor. I jacked the front end up and checked axle oscillation to make sure there was sufficient clearance. A double-coat of hi-temp exhaust paint and we're good to go.

    A few photos are attached for reference:

    I think this solution may also work on the new 102X series as well.

    Just make sure the extra weight/vibration dont break the pipe into the muffler.. I done something like this to another mower and just the extra weight of the tip was enough stress to break the muffler..

    Hay Frank, I did some thing very similar for the same reason. When I remove the blower and put on the FEL I remove it so the front tire don't rub or bend it.

    One of the reasons I used 1.250" chromed brass waste pipe was to keep vibrational weight down. The heavier the pipe the more it wants to shake @ certain RPM's. My 1026 has a brace about half way down the stock pipe and it does a pretty good job of supporting it.

    Keeping that exhaust away from blowers/plows does go a long way towards keeping them from icing up where the hot gasses can hit them hours on end.

    Doug, What size elbow did you use? I didn't have anything on hand that would fit the O.D. of the exhaust pipe or I would have done the same as you. Did you slit it to allow the elbow to clamp to the exhaust pipe?

    Frank, the size of the elbow is 1 1/4". It fits tight so I put four slits on the pipe end and clamped it.

    This is what I did on the 1025r and there is no problem with vibration or hitting the tire. Attached similarly to how HydroHarold describes.

    Mine works OK for the blower but when I mow my ditch or use my FEL in some uneven ground and have the front wheel turned it will rub so I take it off when I take off the blower.

    Doug,
    The side you put on the exhaust, Is that 1 1/4" OD and a straight pipe?
    Thanks
