Default Re: Clone Belt Adjustment

I seen those guys on carsandcameras put a long flex pipe on their cart and it quieted down quite a lot. They later swapped to a muffler but didn't secure it to well and the weld broke. Funny I tried putting LONG amounts of flex pipe on my smaller clone generators after the muffler and it didn't make much difference.

I didn't try it without the tailpipe so my opinion on tailpipes helping could be false. But I had the pipe and room so I added it.

I have noticed at idle that I can feel good strong pulses at the tailpipe outlet so there must not be much back pressure.

Tailpipes help on a regular muffler, like a car muffler. Max quiet you can go a size down and put some bends in it, aim downwards.

I used a coupling (rotating from robertson) on my exhaust at the engine, then a header to under the bumper and hung a car muffler on rubber hangars like a car. It moves with the suspension but not much movement. Be careful welding any stress on the pipe it likes to crack and break at engine due to vibration. I get a tiny ring or squeak out of it once in a while but mostly it does not leak or make noise. No tailpipe but its an oval muffler and quieter than most lawnmowers or atv I like it, at night it could be quieter but not often I do that.

I made a funnel pipe out of 4" metal hvac duct down to a car muffler. Got it so it slides over the round generator muffler nicely. I put a block on the ground to hold it and it quiets it way down. Mine has a heat shield to the carb so it can't backflow and get hot there, though its a 10hp into a car muffler.

Have another clone with SS flex to a muffler under bumper, it has galv pipe out of engine, it works fine. Maybe foot plus of flex.

You should not have to adjust the belt, it should not change. If you are trying to get more life or change how it works maybe, but CVT is made to never move. You never adjust a sled once its right, you put a new belt on or you don't. I had to move my engine because the new clutch was different and made it too tight, I lost top speed. Engine was hitting the trans so had to move away and get longer belt to get it right.

Adjusting the engine mount and belt slack went ok. Not as easy as I had hoped. More so because I noticed the clutches weren't aligned well. Realigning the clutches caused more havoc with exhaust configuration than tightening the belt a bit. Misalignment may have been why the belt needed adjustment so soon.

Saddle type ubolt exhaust clamps are a more secure method but makes dents in both tubes that makes removal or adjustment difficult. The exhaust is ok now but I will add a section of flex to make the next session easier. With my luck there is always a "next session".

Besides, that will give me the opportunity to narrow the whole assembly between the rear shackles. Without making the bends tighter and restrictive. The u bend from the muffler outlet is too close to the spring bushing bolt.
