Hydraulic bypass blocks

I know awhile back several of you were purchasing hydraulic bypass blocks. Have any of you done anything with them yet?

I bought one of WK's blocks he was selling, but haven't used it yet. Still admiring the beauty of the thing before I install it. :D My cub has the underslung exchaust and that is going to have to be moved over a bit where it passes the hydraulics. :? I would be interested in knowing how anyone solves the exchaust pipe problem.

Dan,

It's going to be a tight fit. Loosen the clamp at the elbow on the exhaust manifold and the muffler bracket under the axle. You'll get enough play to move the pipe away from the hydraulic manifold for working room. I put a wooden wedge between the pipe and hydraulic manifold, then tightened up the exhaust. I ended up with about 1/2" clearance between the exhaust pipe and the hydraulic manifold.

When I put mine on with the 1000 loader it came with a offset bracket. It would go where the tail pipe mounts to the trans. The bracket moves the pipe out and down so it give room.

Bob,

You're right, the muffler offset bracket definatelyadds room between the exhaust pipe and hydraulic manifold. The primary purpose for that bracket is to allow the muffler to clear the loader frame back under there, but most anyone could easily fabricate one. If the elbow at the exhaust manifold is getting thin and weak, you'll end up with an exhaust leak there after you reposition the pipe.
