VAC-14 Exhaust Under Tractor

I have a case VAC-14 which originally had the under-tractor exhaust option, as evidenced by a set of mangled brackets under the left floorboard and an under-hood air cleaner. I would like to recreate this exhaust configuration but I cannot find any specific information on it, except for an illustration that was in some case literature. I can fabricate the exhaust elbow and exhaust pipe, but I need to know accurate pipe sizes, lengths, bend angles, and muffler dimensions. I would like to make this thing look and fit like an original if possible, rather than just making it look similar to the illustration. Also, I think the exhaust pipe exited behind the rear axel, since there is a mangled bracket hooked under the left-side eagle hitch mounting bolts.

I just got a glimpse of a free online parts manual which covers the VAC-14, and which gives parts numbers for the under-tractor exhaust. I will try to get to the local case dealer sometime this week and see if any of the parts numbers are still valid.

Something to think about . I HAD the sweetest 300 you could own with under exiting exhaust from the factory and used it to brush hog alot then one day i was going along and smelled something burning looked down and i was on fire !!! Hydrualic hose had a pin hole spraying on the exhaust pipe caught on fire and the dry grass i was cutting started to burn. I lost a nice tractor only had enough in the fire extinger to put grass fire out I swear i would never have under slug exhaust again!!

Fortunately, the entire hydraulics system on the VAC-14 is on the opposite side from the under-tractor exhaust.

I like the idea of this option, since I get tired of smelling the exhaust fumes coming from the stack of my friend's Cockshutt 40 after an hour or two of brush hogging. I usually spend four or five 9 hour days brush hogging for a landowner at the end of summer. Also, having no muffler sticking out would make working in the woods a lot less worrysome.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
