    Rebuilding my Simar Rototiller just taken the plough mount off and made this mod to it drilled a small hole in the mounting plate fixed a large split pin in to hold a chain from the linch pin holding the plough on its mounting peg. Seemed a good idea so as not loose it if it comes unclipped a simple fix if you have this type of mount

    Looks very nice, did you get that paint made up to your spec? I have a plough, so will be interested to see a picture of your modification, saw another machine for sale on that well known website, and it had a proper exhaust box fitted across the front, I think I understand why!

    End of exhaust should be flattened and have slots cut into side see https://www.vhgmc.co.uk/photo-galleries/simar-imgsimar025/

    Charlie. All the various SIMAR models with front exiting exhaust I’ve seen have the “usual “ stub exhaust. But many continental ones have large exhausts, sometimes a serpentine layout, incorporating exhaust boxes. Am I right in thinking they were SIMAR options or accessories? Perhaps they were available after market over here?

    The only option I have seen for UK models is the large pepper pot, which I have on my model 35. The big model 90 did have an exhaust and silencer mounted alongside fuel tank and I have seen photos of model 60 with exhaust across the front.

    Thanks for the info chaps, I have seen photographs of the ones you are talking about I may try the UK version and press the one I have to form a fish tale and cut some slots in it and see how loud it is 😳

    This is a typical continental exhaust.

    Drawings for the exhaust and silencer should be held in archives at MERL. I will need to check part numbers and see if they are on the list.
