The exhaust note can be a key part of a tractor’s true character, especially genuine classics such as the feature International 844S. So, in short, any replacement stack should emulate the original sound. We ordered a replacement exhaust from five reputable parts suppliers. Granit, Kramp and QTP will be known by most in the UK, while Histoparts and Old Tractor Shop are both Netherlands-based online spare parts sites.
