One suggestion, Brad, based upon experience. I suggest you add another bracket of some type, just to keep the muffler positioned. I'm using a Cub Cadet type stack muffler, with the curved tip. I had it mounted very similar to yours, but just a little closer to the engine than yours. What I found was that after a while it would loosen enough in the pipe threads on the nipple to start "falling over backwards". I ended up running a bracket to brace it to, in my case, the headlight mounting brackets, and connected to one of the muffler clamps. That seems to be working well. Some people add a bracket to one of the head bolts, I've heard. Bottom line is that this is quite a bit of weight hanging out pretty far from the engine. It needs something to help hold it steady... But, I love both the looks and the sound of mine. I'll bet you do too... When are you going to give me its story, along with these pictures for the Gallery? I get a real kick out of this one-eyed Cyclops look that these had with the single headlight -- that's why I picked that picture for the T-shirt and site banner...

Brad, the tractor looks good. I put the same type of muffler on my Allis Chalmers B-207. But I think you have the muffler out a little bit to far. I have mine pretty close to my hood. I was afraid that the heat from it would be to much, but it was no problem.

Brad, I agree nice looking tractor and I personally like Kent would like to see more of it. Their are a couple of members with your tractor model but I would really like to see even more in the gallery. I might add this type of muffer to my 64 Landlord as the muffer that I have on it is just to loud and I do like the looks of yours. Thanks, >>->happyjack<-<<

Brad, Thanks for the great detailed pictures and list of material. I wish other members would do the same for attachments and modifications. I considered putting stack mufflers on my tractors, but they wouldn't last long. I have too many low hanging branches I go underneath.

For the same reasons, I relocated the exhaust of the B&S 243431 engine in my 7010. I had use a new 1"x2" pipe nipple, and a 1" coupling. Like Brad, I used electrical conduit nut rings to lock everything in place. Below is a link to a picture of the B&S 24.[A href='http://home.att.net/~herb.niewender/muff-bs24.jpg']http://home.att.net/~herb.niewender/muff-bs24.jpg[/a]

I run a belt off the K301 engine in my 7012 to power attachments. The factory muffler was in the way. Also, some day I may refinish the tractor and I don't want the exhaust blowing through the hole in the hood and discoloring the paint. Because of low hanging branches, I couldn't install a stack muffler. So, I rerouted the factory exhaust to relocate the muffler away from the engine and outside the hood. No additional parts were used. I just realigned the factory parts. Below is a link to a picture of the K301.[A href='http://home.att.net/~herb.niewender/muff-k301.jpg']http://home.att.net/~herb.niewender/muff-k301.jpg[/a]

Nice loooking rig Brad! We have 2 Sims and an AC that we fitted with a cub CADET type muffler very similar to your good looking job. They are avail from Stens for $15 I believe.We did have to fabricate bracing for ours to keep them straight and plumb.

I know I need to make a brace, it holds super tight now but I would't want the muffler to fall off. Does anyone know where I can get side decals that are metal and say Simplicity 700 wonderboy? I am trying to get this in great shape and put some dupont on it for show but I need those side decals. Thanks for the input,-BradW P.S. For those who E-mailed me this is what I used: * 1 Farmall cub muffler (this IS NOT a cub cadet muffler,just a farmall cub. You can purchase this item at a farm store or from a Case-International dealer, I bought mine at Blain's farm&fleet part number IH 1. *2 a 1" diameter by 6-8" long pipe. *3 a 1" diameter by 6" pipe. *4 a 90 degree elbow with 1" fittings. *5 Lock nut's!!! I bought a box of five so I could put one on every fitting, super tight then. *6 a 1-1\4 muffler clamp this wil fit tight on the muffler but will hold it down to the pipe like a rock! * personal choice would be a turnout or a rain cap on your muffler, I used a raincap on mine to make that "clinking" noise in idle. *Take you 8 inch long pipe with a locknut and attach it to the block,then screw on your 90 degree elbow, screw in the 6 inch pipe and put your muffler clamp on your muffler and put the muffler on the 6 inch pipe and tighten very hard. That's all you need, good luck, -BradW

Neat "O" Brad, Also I like the job that Tractorguy has done also. I have seen your tractor William and always wondered about the exhaust on it as its one nice rig also. There are some really nice tractors that our fellow members own and it really does show how are idea's get passed around. Thanks, >>->happyjack<-<<
