John Deere Tractor exhaust
[Return to Topics]

Dennis    Posted 08-01-2002 at 11:35:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
Here is a gripe, My JD tractor exhaust is just at a level that the exhaust blows back into my face and I nearly choke to death just operating it.
I am going to the Local? muffler shop and having an extension made so I can at least mow the fields
and still be alive.

Thank you Scooterhead, we already have two tractors, don't have room for a third. Dennis now has a choice, he can either shrink or I will get him a gas mask that he can wear. Just thinking, he is 6'2" so really he should be above that exhaust thing.

Any other wonderful ideas like this one will have me calling upon the gods of the jerthwill to visit you and not a pretty sight at all.

Just keep laughing Ger, I'll be sending Dennis up there instead. He won't have to worry about the exhaust because it will freeze before it gets to him.

Think I`ll wrap up in the whole roll !!!!

Clem    Posted 08-01-2002 at 12:04:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
That should work, Dennis. I've had to do that on a couple tractors. It's cheap, too. Make sure EIEIO wears her duck tape and sun glasses.

Okay you guys read it right here. Dennis was telling me he was chocking because of my smoking, well yesterday he took me on the tractor and I couldn't breathe because of that exhaust. Now please tell him how dangerous this "tractor smoking", can be.

I grew up driving a JD B. My dad disconnected the original muffler and turned the exhaust pipe going to it so it pointed down, kind of at an angle so it pointed toward the front of the tractor and down, then added an extension. He just left the muffler disconnected, so it was kind of loud. Maybe you could do something similar, but put muffler at the end?

Not ta step in twixt tha two of Ya Dennis Re types of smoke. I'd think about mabe gettin that extension bent over so as ta blow tha smoke out tha side and if Ya have tree limbs ta go under might keep overall height in mind.

My old 9n has tha exhust comin out under tha rear axle. Does real good for keepin tha fumes away and also an excelent job of settin hay on fire if Ya ain't watchin which can raise Yer pulse rate in mighty short order.

My M/F 180 has a vetical exhaust and if tha wind ain't in Your favor it can get pretty headachy.

My Ford 2000 has a canope,exhuast goes up and over tha top'n out tha back. Works pretty good but too tall for gettin under trees.

In closin, if there is ANY exhust system thats perfect it is only tha one on tha ( DELETED) Tri directional super triple inverted drive stereosonic------You know tha one I mean

You're right about hay fires AND being able to breathe - my exhaust guy twisted the pipe on my B down around sorta pointed towards my foot, strapped alongside the frame - so far so good. Anything beats breathing it! :)

Don't know if you saw my post over on the Tales board yestiddy. VA gave me 10% disability for tinnitus.
Back in the old days when you had a different handle, I seem to 'member that you might be innerested is such a thing.

DeadCarp - hey Les    Posted 08-01-2002 at 21:31:39       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yup, i too have tinnitus and not only that, your memory's better than mine if i talked about it before - i'll look into it, now that it's writ down on paper on top of my keyboard :)

Les...As I recall, Hogman    Posted 08-01-2002 at 17:03:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
the exhaust on the (deleted) all went through a recovery system with a series of reduction chambers filled with diatomaceous earth which then took the CO2 and H2O and recombined it into usable hydrocarbons with an octane rating of roughly 104. This was then piped back into the fuel tank which reused it making it one of the most efficient machines ever known to tillers of the soil.
In addition, impurities in the original fuel, such as trace metals, were also separated out by means of a platinum catalytic converter and stored in a #10 coffee can. When a can became filled, an idiot light on the dashboard would light up so that the operator could put on a fresh can. During plowing or threshing season, this would have to be done several times a day. I heard of one farmer with several thousand acres who specialized in fuels heavy with molybdenum. In October of each year, he would sell the solid molybdenum to the government and make enough to buy a new tractor.
But then again, I may have it all wrong.
Like it always.

I was rereading my (DELETED) notes and didn't they use fossilized remains of the diatoms instead of the diatomaceous.

Also not only did they sell the solid molybdenum they also sold liquified grophlytus which is used in trying to cut down on the gophers.

Seems I recall it that way though I could be wrong, since my duct tape kept unraveling in this heat and my hair kept catching on fire with that tin foil protection hat that I was told to wear so that the knowledge I have about the prothwelterones used on the (Deleted) didn't leak out.

if your hair was the same length as mine, what little there is left of it (see picture), you'd never have to worry about much of anything sticking to it.
BTW, these are half of my grandchildren with me at my mother's house.

EIEIO    Posted 08-01-2002 at 19:01:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
Beautiful grandkids, sure wouldn't want to be the parent of the little girl when she grows up. Her parents better lock the doors and windows.

Do they take after your wife's side of the family!?LOL

Thanks for sharing

That little girl is the apple of grampa's eye and is 110% personality. She gets her looks from her mother, my DIL. She just turned 5 last week.
