What is your best suggestion on how to keep water from getting into the manifold on my "B" Allis Chalmers. 1939 Model, tall muffler. The manifold is good, it has a new muffler, but the way the muffler fits, water can run down around the bottom and get into the manifold. The tractor has to sit outside sometimes. I'm trying to find a good fix for this. Your ideas appreciated.

Dick L: That water fix is inspired! I should have thought of that!! LOL I have fought this problem on all models of AC for over 30 years. I used to leave the muffler loose so I could pull it and soup can the manifold. Now I just fanaticaly tarp when exposed to the elements.

If you get the standard underhood muffler, they are baffled so water does not go to the manifold. You can see this for yourself by pouring water in the top and seeing it come out of the hole off to the side.

this will not last but is a cheep fix my uncel uses on his MM you get a pice of aluminum foil out and rap it around the botom of the mufler at the bottom whare it clamps and when the water runs down the side of the mufler some of it will still get in there but some will run off when it hits the foil will have to be changed when it falls apart having less water in there is bound to help some
