Thanks for the comments, I guess we'll go with black. I picked up some washers to use for flanges tonight. I should be able to finish the exhaust this weekend.

Well, I started hooking the exhaust on this weekend...Until I got doing other stuff. You can see the tab welded behind the pipe and bolted to the frame. I guess I'll also make some kind of bracket where the megaphone is and that should handle holding the pipe to the tractor. If I ever get out to the garage tonight, maybe I'll get the holes drilled through the washers for the upper/lower exhaust connection. It'll use the same gasket as the port, that way It's easy to get another one if nessesary.

Thanks. This is the second weekend in a row that I really didn't get anything done on this thing. Just when you think your not busy you end up having to do a bunch of other stuff. Anyway, I did get the holes drilled in the washers for the exhaust connection. Now I have all the pieces, they just need to be welded up.

Finally got some of this exhaust done. Needed a little extra turn, so I welded on another bend before cutting to length.


Tacked to the Briggs flange.


Upper section complete. Now I just have to make the last bend and merge into the lower section.

Almost done with the exhaust...almost...Got the lower flange and final bend going, with the help of a magnet and piece of wood.


Cut the lower pipe/megaphone section.


Hammered and bent it into shape, just need to start welding it and do a little more hammering. Also, I need to add one more brace/hanger on the megaphone. Picked up a gallon of yellow rustoleum. I guess I'll just brush paint the frame with that.

Try mounting the GoPro in some foam or something to stop the transfer of the noise. Sounds like it's inside a washing machine on spin cycle. I want to hear more motor and less GGGGGGGGG lol! Laughing  Great vids though and the slo-mo is cool!  Wink

Yeah, I think there's a lot of vibration transfered from everything when it's mounted on the tractor.

I welded up the lower pipe so that the pipe itself is pretty much done. I just need to add a couple braces.


I was worried that things were going to end up bent out of shape when I welded it, but it ended up pretty close.

I agree with will, came out great! The cupplet from washers is neat, i attempted that on my single cyl but i made it from sheet metal and it never sealed. More fab then what my duals have thats for sure

Well thanks. I should be able to test it out this weekend. Should be pretty loud, we'll see.

Welded up the braces. I put the exhaust back on and tested it without gaskets just to see how it sounded. When I started putting it back together I remembered that I never went to buy them. At any rate, it is loud, but not like I imagined it would be. Has kind of a neat sound when you back off the throttle. Sort of sounds like the mustang in the bullitt movie. You can see a bunch of white powder from the welding blow out when I crank it over. Of course when I rev it...well that looks like a bit of smoke. I was actually hoping it smokes just a little, draws attention to where the exhaust exits. Also you can see the pipe jumps around a lot. I didn't tighten up the mounting bolts on the lower pipe.


I welded on a couple pieces of bed frame for the firewall/dash. This will hold your switches and junk, and also the back of the hood.


Next I'll run a rod or piece of pipe from the top to the steering column. That should make a pretty rugged setup out of it. There won't be a whole lot of room to hide your wiring and starter solenoid under there, but I think it'll fit.
