I just got a Murray wide body and i have a couple of questions. Im going to put twin stacks on it that are 2 inches in diameter 1 inch coming out of the motor and i was wondering if there will be too much or too little backpressure also if anyone know i would like to know how much speed i could get if i had two 5 inch pullies? some of the thing i have already done to it are a front bumper, lights, and a gas edal and some other things im going to do are get some kenda bear claws for the rear and make a rear bumper alo and im not sure yet but i mihgt get a winch. I will post some pictures also.

If you've got a decent length of 1" pipe off the motor you should be fine. With 2 5" pulleys you'll have a 1:1 pulley ratio. That should give you some good speed, in my experience, I'd say 30 kmh would be a rough guess, depending on tire size and governor / no governor.

Get the bearclaws! Awesome tyres.

For the exhaust, get a couple of those small canister mufflers. The dont lower the sound too much, give it plenty back pressure, and I think they sound better than straight pipes IMO>
1:1 will get you about 20mph, some ration Im using cheers

I agree on the muffler, strait pipe = too much backfiring ...

What kind of speed are you looking for? Too fast and you cant mud with it ( too unstable- specially if its raised higher then stock) .

Id say under 20mph is best for mudding- any faster, then leave it for hot rodders and racers.

Thats a decent tractor to mod out with the c channel frame .

I know this thread is very very old but i figured since im now on again that i would update a little bit. Since i haven't been on the site i have finished my stacks that i made with 1 and 2 inch piping and 2 little canister mufflers they work mint i just screw the stack in to the threaded elbow and im off. Also the tires are 22". HEre are some recent-ish pictures:
This one is mostly just to show the stacks.

This one is of the rain caps that are always necessary when you have stacks!
