I have a decent 330 international and am working at getting the exhaust finished. Mine is the underslung exhaust and the elbow costs 6 trillion dollars. I prefer vertical exhaust. My hood is uncut and from what I understand this is a fairly uncommon tractor. Anyone out there want to trade or should I just cut a hole and move on? Don't give me the its your tractor do what you want thing. I understand that.

Thanks.

I have a 300u that has been in the family since almost new.It has 7500+ hrs on it.It has had an underslung exhaust on it since new.When I first started driving tractors with vertical exhaust I could not stand looking around the muffler,but got used to it.But I much prefer underslung exhaust on a gas tractor.Vertical can catch on tree limbs,or vines,and get bent or break.And nothing is in your view either.Just saying!Mark

If it's original paint don't ruin it. If paint is not a concern it would not be hard to repair if the hole needed to be closed by welding a patch and repainting later.

You can use a stret elbow and short nipple then go to a muffler shop for the tube to the muffler or cut the hood and go verticle.

Another idea might be to buy or fab up another hood that you can do with what you want, while keeping the original for any future needs.

You say it's fairly rare - as in how rare in terms of value? If not all that much over other similar Farmalls, I wouldn't worry about it, but that's just me.

If you plan on using it, then you'll just be adding more historical character to it, right?

I am not familiar with the exact geometry of that elbow, but agree that it could probably
be fabbed for a bit less than 6 trillion. I have often dreamed of doing something similar
on my 300U/350U so that I could retain the underslung exhaust and clean hood, but get away
from the chronically breaking manifolds that were OEM.

I thought that the 330 and 300U/350U utility used basically the same sheet metal, correct? If so, I , and probably every other guy that works on these utilities has a half dozen 300U/350U
LH hood sections that has already been cut, and would gladly either trade, or sell you an already butchered, er rather, cut, hood very cheaply, at least for just under 4.5 trillion. I don't think
it would be correct, because the air cleaners were different (you will have to cut a second hole for your air cleaner pipe).

That way, if you change your mind, you won't have to source a hood section, and the restoration purists will
all be duly impressed with your strong moral fiber.

On the 300U/350U the manifolds seem to be a constantly failing part,
and folks that were using them, understandably, got fed up and just put a vertical exhaust manifold
(Which don't seem prone to breakage) on, so it is much more common to see a LH hood section that has been cut than not.

By the way, I run a Yale forklift that uses that C135 engine, and it has performed flawlessly for years.
The guy who sells me parts for my old forklifts always warns me- "Do not, under any circumstances, break the manifold on that Yale. If you do, you may as well throw the lift away". Good luck either way.

I never thought of that. Awesome. That is why I posted this. I knew the air cleaner was different but didn't think about hacking up a semi bad 300 or 350. Are the hoods the same length? If so you saved it and I will store it away.

I just checked on five of the L.H. hoods I have laying about, the longest had an overall length of 39-1/8" and the shortest had an overall length of 39-1/16". Jeff

I will measure mine. Thanks for the dimensions. Would you be willing to part with one of those hoods? If not I understand and am very happy with the info I have been given. Thanks for the help.

The easier route may be to get a mandrel u-bend to direct the exhaust back up and avoid having to cut a hole in the hood.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
