Toro HDXD air filter relocation .

First of all I'll mention that there is a kit to elevate the draw in side of air filter for extra dusty conditions  . Our Top dresser HDX D has it . 
Today I'm moving the air filter box from under the dump bed to somewhere between the seats .

The old filter location attracts a lot of dust and you have to clean the air filter often . Where mostly cart parths here and still it is an issue .  


Holding it up in different locations .


Going to use ABS pipe 1.5"( inside ) ridged and puncher proof and is not going to collapse with the extra distance . Mapping a route for pipe avoiding dump bed and any pinch points .


Drilling a test fitting .


had to go a little higher on the final fitting .


after mounting air box run lines in reverse starting off with a mechanical clamp . 


using ABS glue  fittings . test fitting and marking joints for gluing as I go  



Mechanical clamp from hardware plumbing section . 



Sanded and blew out all sections



little tic marks to line pipes up for gluing 

   
All done . Clamp to original hose . and zip tie  



One more to do . Less than $20 dollars .
