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 .
