AC Vertical stack

Recommended Posts

Added a vertical stack with a flapper to my B-112 last night, somewhat similar but not exactly like what Brad Weis illustrates on the website. It's not stock, but I surely like it...sounds a bit like my old "Johnny Popper" now, and definitely adds character (although additional character wasn't necessary). Has anyone else done this and if so, have you added additional bracing from a headbolt, etc.? Bob "Stumpy" Hazelbrook

We run a vertical pipe on our pulling tractor. Currently we are using a motorcycle megaphone unit. I ran a brace from the pipe to one of the engine shroud bolts to prevent the fittings from loosening up. Ours gets ridden around on a trailor quite a bit and the road vibrations will loosen up nearly anything. Rod H.

I am running vertical stacks on an AC 710 with Kohler, vertical pipe on the right side viewed from the operator's seat, and an AC B110, vertical pipe on the left, viewed from the operator's seat. Neither has any additional bracing and I have not experienced any problem with either unit. The AC 710 exhaust extensions run back across the front of the engine to the opposite side due to interference with the air cleaner on the 10 HP Kohler. The Briggs does not have that interference. On both units I locked the 1" threaded pipes together with locknuts and that has held both of these systems very tight. You are right, vertical does add a bit of character, IMHO. Tom

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
