    Default Curved exhaust versus flapper

    Has anyone ever stuck an engine because their tractor was left out with an uncovered exhaust pipe that had a curved end? How about with a flapper? I've already gotten one motor stuck and don't want a repeat performance.

    Flapper with a half a soda can on top. A soda can works good because if you forget it is there the exhaust will blow it of.

    Ted,
    Do you cut a slot in the soda can for the counter weight on the flappper? My Massey came with a flapper and I couldn't get anything that small over it.

    I'm sorry for your loss. Which did you have on the Honda, curved exhaust, or flapper?

    I've been able to mash the can to fit over the counter weight but it it is on a Farmall 140 gas exhaust. I think a slot on one side would work. A set of tin snips would come in handy.

    The kubota has exhaust under the grille out the front. The MF 135 has a curved exhaust but stays under the shed (the others usually do unless I am working a food ply or hay and need to leave machinery in the field)

    Thanks,Ted. I imagine the 140 has a smaller exhaust and flapper.

    Stuck a old jeager pull behind air compressor. Had a straight stack on the continetal motor. Pop can over pipe using electrical tape to keep it on. Come spring the motor would not turn over. Crack on the manifold where the stack mounted-filled her up with water. No more sandblasting.

    I like flappers personally. Just installed a straight pipe on my splitter, so far the flapper is working perfect.

    The upright stack still will have moisture in it when it cools down. This comes from the combustion gasses cooling down and depositing on the walls of the stack. To get an idea how much that could be watch the horizontal tailpipe on your car or pickup. This amount should not affect the workings much.
