I had to cut a big section out of the right step to clear the pedals. This came with a huge brake pedal that I need to modify.

My pull cable for the throttle isn't staying where I pull it so I need to figure something out with that. Were to put the fuel tank is another biggie. No room behind the dash or under the seat.

I am thinking maybe build a standing rack to hold the fuel tank above the muffler, with a cutout in the hood for the fill cap.  The heat could be shielded from the tank with either a metal stand-off shield, or wrap the tank with heat shield material.

 

Crude example:

If you wrapped it with good stuff made for this kinda thing, you could keep a tunafish sandwich in there for hours & not get food poisoning!

why not ditch the muffler, put a stack on and then put the tank where Daniel said?

FYI- The WH GT14 has 5 Ga. of gas sitting right in front of the exhaust port and muffler. I haven't heard of a single one blowing up, and they are plastic tanks.

honestly I'm not either... unless they are diesel. Another option (depending on if you plan to run a mower deck) would be to fab an exhaust like older gas tractors had down, under the belly and out the back.

 

edit: let me correct that... I don't like the LOOKS of stacks. I love the functionality of them. Get the exaust/sound up and out of the way. Forward facing are good for sound but the exhaust still blows back in your face. Side shooting is good for exhaust but bad for sound.

This is the first day I've really had a change to work this machine. My drag with 5 cinder blocks has strained every tractor I've had. I use it to test trannys. It did well. I re graded the driveway and moved a couple cords of firewood. I have noticed that the engine bay gets hot. The hood and dash are hot enough you can't touch it. The steering and seat combo are comfortable so I may be getting rid of the wheel horse hood and dash. All and all I'm.extremely happy with what I've got.Posted Image
