Nice herd you got there!  That Commando 800 is a good runner, hard to believe that’s what my kid daughter’s used to look like!

We had a welding project in shop class last year... they are functional and still kept a muffler :handgestures-thumbupright:

I'm certain you can find anything you need in the "MANUALS" section!

Thank you I really appreciate it!

 

I took a quick look and didn't immediately find an exact year match, but try the '72 it will be 'close enough'

Get us the model # off the tag under the dash and we'll nail down the year.

Yeah... those look... 10 times better than the stack I made. I mig weld only... so my welds are not the best looking... BUT I have never had anything come apart!

 

I just did not like the way my tractor performed with the stack. (someone may logic this out better than me)... but it was either too much or not enough back pressure (I am thinking not enough).

 

I could run a muffler on mine... I just decide not to after all the comments I have gotten. The UPS guy told me that is sounds pretty rowdy... LOL

 

That is what I like about it, it looks and sounds different than anything anyone has ever seen.

 

Wait... I wasn't supposed to be talking about my tractor... :eusa-think:

 

I did notice on mine also, that I needed a support for the exhaust since it was about 10 times heavier with the stack. I did have to weld that support on (before I took the whole stack off --I know... all that work for nothing). Did you find the same thing... or was your stack okay as-is without any supports?

e. I mig weld only...


These welds were MIG only also.  The only TIG I’ve done on my tractors lately has been the loader project...

I... actually watched one of your videos on this.

 

If you wouldn't mind sharing, about how much do you think everything is costing you to throw the loader on?

 

SOOOO... I am keeping a loader idea in the back of my mind for my L-157. ...I know... very small tractor... but still something I am keeping in the back of my mind.

 

I was... thinking... something like this. I know it will need fab work... etc... but I wonder if it would work...

I am laughing...

 

I say the same thing when people ask how much money I have into engines... (I will just say... 4 digits)... :blink: Considering that each engine costs... over 400$ and I have a couple of them... plus all the parts I have and the ones I keep buying. China has made a lot of money off of me... LOL
