    Default Exhaust pipe rain cover

    The tractor has to sit outside after I moved it to our other place for awhile. I couldn't find a small can to put over the exhaust pipe, so I tied a plastic bag over the end.

    Now I start thinking. Gee, I wonder if I'm sealing in more moisture from exhaust gases remaining in the manifold than I'm keeping out from any rain that comes along. I wonder if I should remember to take a small can from home, and then hope it doesn't blow off.

    TomG, there's not going to be much moisture in the exhaust gases, unless the tractor hasn't warmed up before you shut it off. If you're concerned about it, though, you could make a can that would sit up off the top of the pipe a little - but I think it's more trouble than it's worth. (Maybe Bird would liken it to using Amsoil in a tractor that'll outlast you without it. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img])

    I think that's a good analogy, Mark.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Thanks. That's what I thought too. If I spent more time trying to think less, then I'd probably have more time.

    Since, at times, this forum seems to be something like Rome--All discussions led to oil--I'll ask a question. Any idea of the difference between Ford/NH 134 and Ford/NH F200 hydraulic oil? I ended up with 5 gallons of each. I think the F200 is a multi-season version of the standard 134.

    Coming up on my 600-hour oil change. Don't know if the oils mix, or if it's worth driving 300 miles to exchange the 134. It gets real cold here in the winter.

    TomG - I don't know, personally. What I'd recommend, though, is... no, never mind. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Didn't intend to have a Deere fleet - it just happened

    I had a counterweighted rain flapper on my exhaust pipe. The rattle was driving me nuts. So a veggy can was put into service. Even painted the can to match. Works well ... if I can remember to put the can on the pipe after using the machine.

    That's all the farmers in my family have ever used, a (coffee) can on a stick.
