My tractor is making a black mess from the exhaust on the hood side cover. Is this normal. It only has about 23 hours on it. I am thinking about taking it to an exhaust shop and having a stack bent for it.

I hope you can make out these pics. I had read a thread some where else about the same issue. So I found these at Home Depot for under $5 (If I remember correctly). I can now redirect the exhaust flow down. BUT .... I simply pressed the first one in and it didn't stay long. :banghead: So now this one is riveted in.

Silicone 30

You're not alone, many on here have made mods to direct the exhaust away from the paint. Look for one of these, this is just the first example I found in a quick search, I paid $3 I think on Ebay for mine.

Can you share a photo of your issue?

Looking at the parts illustration for your engine it looks like you have a similar left/front exhaust location like a lot of 1-series and older 2-series tractors. Several folks, myself included, have attached a small silicon rubber elbow which directs exhaust away from the tractor. This not only keeps the soot off the loader and other front implements but also helps keep the side area clean.

Note, the photo was taken right after I first installed the hose. The soot has since been cleaned off the parking stand and loader arm. The hose has been installed now for over a year and it is working fine. Best $6 I ever spent.

Another option if you like the Chrome look is to get a metal P Trap from the hardware store. I want to say 1.25" pipe fits nice. They are normally made from copper or brass. Just cut it to get the angle you want. Also cut a couple slits in the end that goes over the original exhaust pipe so when you clamp it on with a stainless hose clam it can compress down a bit.

Here's what mine looks like... The tailpipe is 1.5 inch OD and 1-3/8 inch ID. What size is the silicone elbow (it looks stretched over the tailpipe) and where did you get ?

Oh wow, that’s worse than the 1-series. They have the outlet too tight against the side cover.

I got mine on EBay. I got it just a hair smaller than the pipe and it slid on with enough friction that it stays in place without the need for clamps yet can be removed or repositioned if needed.

That's what I did too, I actually found a 1 3/8th silicone 45*, it was a brute to get on but it won't fall off without a lot of help.

If you search eBay for " Silicone Turbo Hose Coupler" that will get you started,,
there are elbows, and size adapters, and straight hoses to choose from,,

you can get one that will make your tractor look like a Cummins powered Dodge truck that some kid drives,,,

Removing the Soot?

This has been bugging me for a while so I've ordered the silicone elbow off eBay as well.

What does everyone use to clean off the soot? I've tried a few different things but nothing has removed all of it.

Have you tried Dawn Dish Soap?

I've tried two different products that are degreasers but I haven't tried Dawn. That's easy enough to try.

I’ve had great results on the 2025R removing soot with Meguiar's D10101 Detailer All Purpose Cleaner (available on Amazon) diluted 4:1.

Lots of things will work, not very many are easy on the paint. Since Im fairly particular about how my tractor looks, and intend for it to look as nice as is possible with the work being done over the years, I stay way away from degreasers as they will damage the finish.
I have excellent luck with this:
https://www.amazon.com/Original-Spirits-Spray-Cleaner-Polish/dp/B07CRTQ5BY/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_263_t_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=KERTVPRK4TVHMW8M12J9

I get it at the local Harley shop. One can should last you quite a while.
If you like to keep it clean, its nice to use with microfiber towels to keep a good shine on it.
Works better than anything else Ive ever tried with regard to waterless cleaners like Lucas Slick Mist, Meguiars Quick Detailer, etc.
Also awesome at removing bug residue from your car.
Spray it on, let it sit for a bit, then wipe off and buff to shine if you want.

I too added the silicone elbow. I cut mine at a 45 degree angle though, as I wanted a bit different output angle.
Pointing down, it throws up a LOT of dust when its dry if Im out in the field, so mine points JUST over the top of the tire. Has worked very well in all conditions.

Since owning my tractor I have tried all sorts of cleaners to remove the soot without success. After all, the idea is to remove the soot without damaging the paint. Finally, in one of TTWT's videos he mentioned a WD40 cleaning product called WD-40® Specialist® Industrial-Strength Cleaner & Degreaser. He was using it to remove soot.

I bought a container and tried it and it really worked. It took a bit of rubbing but it took the soot right off and didn't damage the paint. Nothing else I had tried had any effect on the soot.

So the silicone can take the heat? I will try it. I need to do something.

The other problem is I put pallets of firewood in the house through the french doors. The forward facing exit smoked up the house. The little lady didn't like that. So angled to the side would fix that.
