My 1040 C has a muffler under the hood and a little stub of a exhaust pipe extending out. I want to put an extension or stack on it with a weather cap on top to keep rain and snow out.
What is the best way to go about this? Do I have to worry about back pressure? Can I just put a pipe off of a B up there? What hight should it be to keep exhaust out of my face. Lastly, if I have one made up , what is the stub diameter( the C's is all bent up). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My fathers c we actually brought the exhaust pipe thru the hood from the manifold put an elbow on it and basically laid the muffler straight forward laying on brackets about 4" above the hood. it keeps the muffler from being ripped off while mowing close to trees and the fumes disperse before they get to the operator.

I've got one that has a 12" bologna cut chrome extension on it that looks and works good. You can find them at automotive stores.

I had the same problem with my 49c after I put the original muffler under the hood. I rounded out the muffler outlet pipe and bought a piece of 1.5" id pipe with an elbow in it and aimed it away from me just like we did on the tractors on the farm like my grandfather and Dad did. It sure makes it nicer to use and it don't have to stick up farther than a foot above the hood. It blows away from the operator and up in the air.

Tractor Supply and others carry an above-hood muffler for the earlier B's (it's not the CA muffler with a large lower diameter). Probably not the quality of the Nelson, but it has a small pipe on the lower portion about 8 inches or so long, the muffler body above the hood, then another 8 or 10 inches of small dia pipe above the muffler body. Fits right in. No exhaust back at you unless the wind is whipping just right (and you can get that with any tractor). My 1949 B came from the previous owner with one and I've been reluctant to replace it with the correct under-the-hood muffler for just the reason you mention.
