Yes. The later model fenders are longer to accommodate the 4" longer frame. I usually get on and off the other side. Its still tight but not bad once your in. I also considered cutting them down. Any 400 series 1980 and older fenders are the right length.

Here's an update.  I bought some fenders from our site vendor Joe's Outdoor Power and they fit like a glove allowing my large carcass to enter and exit a little easier.  We figured out the loss of power problem and frankly I feel pretty dumb about it.  The points were way off in the Kohler.  We did a static points adjustment and it purrs like a kitten and has plenty of power now so it wasn't a hydraulic issue.  I got lucky on a local JD dealer online clearance auction and got a pair of 9.5-16 ags for $110 PLUS a pair of 6-12 ags for either my 64 110, AC B-1, or Jacobsen 100A.  I haven't decided yet which will wear those shoes.  We do have a clearance problem with one of the footrests but either a little die grinder or plasma cutter adjustment should fix that issue.

That looks great! I see your former 200 series was a newer model than mine. I had the older style footrest. A little trimming and it'll be good to go. Your class did a great job. Also something to consider with the clearance. The 9.5-16's are actually taller than the 8's.

I'm currently accumulating parts to utilize the other frame. Was going to part it out. Now I managed to get my hands on another engine so its only natural to build another tractor. Thread soon to come.
