Cool exhaust! Does that just thread into the block? You might want to make a bracket to hold it because the weight of the muffler could put a lot of stress on the block and maybe crack it if it got hit by anything or rolled over onto.

Nice work, it would be cool if you could make a before and after video so we could hear the difference between the previous exhaust you had on there and this one.

Yeah they are hard to tell on video. I noticed it slipped off.  A good thing to hold it on with is either a hose clamp or bailing wire, and they both are cheap and removeable.

Oh okay. I would use a hose clamp to hold it on to the bottom of the mount though.

Yeah it sorta sounds like there's excessive valve clearance, either that or it's the dreaded piston slap. But hopefully it's just the valves.

and its hidden, once I pull the tractor apart to paint it I'll have to clean up the wiring, I'm not a fan of having a bunch of wires running to the battery ( maybe a junction box/block for power and same for ground side )
