model EF230H exhaust pipe

Postby mm19 » Fri Aug 18, 2017 7:10 am

I have a Yanmar tractor model EF230H and would to know whether I can reverse the exhaust pipe from a horizontal to vertical outlet. Looking at the mufler position it looks like to me that it could be turned by 180 degrees rather easily. However I would like to be sure that there is not a hidden problem.Many thanks for your help and greetings from France.

Sure, commonly and easily done, at least on other models. (I think most owners change from vertical to horiz.) While it's off, tap and/or air-blow it to try to get loose crud out.

Thanks Alan,for your reassuring reply. I do wonder however why most owners would change from vertical to horiz. position. In fact the reason why I would like change to vertical is to prevent the brushing of my face with exhaust gases. With an extended pipe of 2 meters this problem should be solved, I hope. :) Perhaps others would like to comment on this issue. Thanks once more and Regards.

Going under low trees is why I need mine horizontal.

Ditto to Winston. Also, keeps any rain out.

I added to the outflow a customized pipe so it exhausts under the engine -- back when diesel fumes were dangerous to lungs, especially young ones. Now that the sulphur's removed from diesel (as I understand, throughout N. America), it's less harmful -- and costlier.

If you do way extend it in front, wear a suit of armor and nobody will mess with you.
