861 horizontal muffler mounting

I need some help mounting a new muffler on my 59 861.

It previously had a 2" elbow and muffler and vertical exhaust. I'm switching to the horizontal exhaust.

I've installed a new manifold, 2" elbow and matching muffler. The other pipes are fitting great in mock up stages as well.

Where I'm stuck is the front muffler outlet mounting. I've got brackets for other models, I'm assuming with the smaller exhaust (NAA5288A and NAA5288B) which of course don't fit. I'm using the "o" style clamp as well. The CNH site shows part number 311045 as the correct bracket, but the cost of it just seems extreme for what I'm doing.

So, I was wondering if anyone had some pics of how theirs mounted with a 2" inlet muffler and horizontal exhaust. I figure I'm going to have to fabricate a bracket and would just like some visual ideas on what to make so it's somewhat close to correct.

Also, if anyone has a pic of how the junction of curved and straight pipe sections mount under the tractor, that would be helpful as well.

This exhaust project has really snowballed beyond the original scope of work. Gas tank started leaking when we pulled it in, fuel line was horribly installed and a fire hazzard, sediment bowl was missing, carb full of crud and with a sticky float, air inlet tube fell off, major oil leak at the gauges, incorrectly wired alternator, wrong starter button, governor compensating spring under the battery box mangled and incorrectly installed, and even more. After digging in, i'm surprised this thing has been reliably running as my lawn mower (6ft finish mower) for the last 5 years.

Thanks!

Thanks for the help. That pic shows exactly what I need to make. I should have some scrap laying around that I can make one of those out of.

It would not take much to make one, just some flat bar stock. third party image

Sounds like 90% of the ones you find out there working.
