Water out the exhaust when motor is started

I saw a message last week about water being puked out the exhaust when started. My W9 does that. The first time was after a rain and I assumed water had gotten into the engine during the rain. The muffler has a top on it, but the counter weight is almost perfectly balanced and I thought it might have opened during the rain. I have kept the muffler covered, but this still happens after a hard rain. Took the hood off to find the exhaust manifold has been welded, but makes no leaking sounds when running. The engine runs good and there is never any other time that water comes out. I'll appreciate comments. Thanks.

All of our tractors (even the modern ones) will shoot some water and soot out after a good rain. Also even in colder weather when they are kept inside the condensation will make them shoot some water. I wouldn't worry about it unless you don't run your engine to operating temp.

We keep a total of 6 Farmall and Olivers in an unheated shed. During cold weather, every start of every tractor is accompanied by a light mist of sooty water droplets. It lasts for a minute or so until the manifold and muffler begin to warm. It's simply condensation from the spent combustion gases being blown out the stack. If you keep the muffler covered, the coolant level stays up and the tractor otherwise runs fine, I wouldn't worry about it. ...Bob M

PS - You would not believe the stuff that issues from the stack when I cold start the old Cummins diesel-powered Kenworth! You better be wearing dark clothes or else stand upwind when that lights off!

My M lives inside and does the same thing sometimes.

Could it be just condensation in the cylinders and exhaust path that you are seeing. I see water come out of car's exhaust due to this.

I have the same problem on my 450. It's the welded pipe in the manifold that lets the water seep in. Like yours, I have no evidence of exhaust leaks.

I have a friend who had a Farmall 400 that sat out. It had a loose thread where the pipe screws into the ex.manifold. Well it sat out one wet winter and in the spring I put in two sleaves, one piston and a NEW block for him. that was 26 years ago, I now own the tractor, you betcha I keep the pipe tight!
It sets out with a workmaster 800 loader on it.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
