I havent had the deck on my 129 yet but was looking at my options and came across a smokin deal on a 682 sans motor. Im thinking i want to pull the diesel out of the 129 and put it in the 682. But the 682 doesnt have a deck. So will the 129 deck fit on the 682?
Otherwise i will be looking for a deck for a 682.

From the looks of them, they will. I've not tried it but during my deck rebuild I looked a lot of the older decks. The only thing I can see that might be different would be the belt length. Does your 129 deck have one large blade and two small?

Shouldn't be an issue. I have a 44" deck off a 82 series on my 108. Is it a 50A or 50C?

Like Shawn said the deck pulley is different.  82 series uses a 5/8" belt while a 129 uses a 3/8" belt.  That would mean also changing the idler pulleys on the mule drive to 5/8" as well.  Only thing is I'm not sure about is if a mule drive from a 129 will fit a 82 series.

ok so apparently I didn't know what deck I have. It is a 44c so a 44" deck instead of a 50. I guess I never looked at the tag on it when I unloaded it all at home. and the belts will all stay the same because I am going to swap over the motor to the 682 so whatever is on it now will stay on the 682.

 

that is unless I can find a 50" deck for a 682.

I read that but it never registered in the old computer upstairs.  Still not sure about the mule drive if it will fit on the 682.  Otherwise there should be no problems doing the swap.  Should gain some room inside a 82 series engine bay.  Only consideration is overheating.  With the side shields on gotta make sure that the radiator that was with the 129 is large enough to dissipate the heat while under the shields.  Maybe change the fan to a reverse flow fan to blow air out across the radiator instead of sucking it in over it.

I have had experience with the reverse flow fan and it doesnt work as well as one would first think. The problem is when you suck air from the engine bay and push it across the rad it doesnt cool it as much as cool air from outside the bay.
The radiator that is in the 129 is decent sized and has a thermostatically controlled fan as well.
I will have a coolant temp guage to watch and plan on helping out with airflow as well by taking the big engine plate on the frame out and using smaller engine mounts to allow more airflow around the engine.
Worst case I can remove the side panels on hot days.
If the stock 782D's can keep cool with the radiator between the motor and steering column, i dont think it would be a problem with a grille mounted radiator.

I think that nailed it. Take some pictures of this process... I've got a kubota and am just waiting for the tranny or some other component to crap out so I can put the little smoker in my 682 :D
