Unbreakable Mounting Bracket For Muffler On Case-IH 2670 Tractor
Guy Klosterman, Wahpeton, N. Dak.: "When the muffler on my Case-IH 2670 trac- tor fell off, I used 3/8-in. thick steel plate to build a new ĉunbreakable' mounting bracket. "The muffler on this tractor is notorious for falling off because the mounting hardware for it is poorly designed. It costs about $500 to replace the entire muffler system with a heavier duty one. I've known farmers who have welded steel fence posts from the muffler to the cab to solve the problem. I spent only about $10 on parts to make my bracket.
"I made a new heavy duty steel bracket by bending a 3/8-in. steel plate into an L shape and welding it to another steel plate that was already on the bottom of the muffler. A steel strap runs diagonally from one side of the new plate down to the original factory mounted bracket. A bolt runs through the bottom of the strap and through the factory-mount bracket to the other side of the new bracket."
