AC 713S Modifications

Recommended Posts

HubbardRA
I have had some inquiries about several modifications that I made to my AC713S. Here is a brief explanation of them with pictures. First is some pictures of the Cub Cadet muffler that I mounted on my tractor. I had it laying in my garage and decided not to buy one of the high dollar factory mufflers. Some pipe fittings, a couple of homemade brackets, and a hacksaw to cut off the pipe coming out of the muffler were all it took. It exits through the original hole in the AC713S hood. The colors are a little messed up, since I dropped back to 16 colors in order to post large pictures.

Roy and a couple of other people were interested in how I made the chrome pipe that I attached to the hood, actually couple up with the muffler, yet still be able to open and close the hood of the tractor.

This is a stock air cleaner with the snorkel end from an old Chevrolet air cleaner welded to it, and then ferred in with body putty.

The "exhaust thru the hood" is my favorite - looks good and saves the paint on the hood. Rod - how many people at GOTO looked at that and asked 'how do you open the hood?'. (Besides me :D)

Rod, Very cool and neat. Good thinking!!!! :) What would be better, if possible to do, would be a formed exhast pipe to replace the pipe fittings. I've always thought that the pipe fittings we use must be restrictive and create back pressure. Now, I gotta pick on you a little. "Body putty" on an air filter????? I'm shocked. ;)

Just joking with you too, Roy. If I hadn't wanted people to know about the body putty, I wouldn't have said it. Not worried about a reputation. Please don't hold it against me either.
