Exhaust Pipe Question

Tue Sep 28, 2004 7:25 pm

I am replacing the manifold on my cub and will need a new pipe also. Is there a correct length?? Some I see are really tall and some are just a few inches above the hood.

Thanks in advance.

Correct overall length is 17".

Is that galvanized pipe or black gas pipe or something else??

Most people use black pipe, galvanized will turn dark if you work your tractor.

I0,

Don't know what was original ( I assume black iron) but either will work. 8)

How does the muffler connect to the pipe? I have to replace the entire exhaust system on my NEW old Cub. The old manifold has a big hole in it. And the muffler was replaced with a length of 4'" diameter pipe going back down to a 1" angle. Previous owner made his own muffler! But I will replace the entire everything. How do I get the old manifold off without breaking the studs off the block? Help.

Muffler fits over exhaust pipe and is held in place by a clamp. Check out an earlier post on the subject "First Cub". There were some tips on removing the exhaust manifold.

If you are buying a new manifold, they generally come with the pipe. :wink:

Io,
I was able to get a little creative with mine, I happened to have some 1" stainless.

Scott, Your muffler looks awfully shine`y. Is it chromed or just have a chrome type of paint on it?.

That's what I thought, but I didn't get one with mine. :cry:

John,
That's just a new muffler, it had a straight pipe on it before.
I thought, why don't I just change that out? I have a piece of stainless pipe, went out and bought a muffler. As soon as I touched it, the pipe came off at the manifold and left it's threads behind.
So......... off came the manifold....... buy a 1" pipe tap to chase the threads. It's never simple. You can see in the picture, I didn't even have a clamp on the muffler yet.
