That is one shiny tractor!
What do you think about the seat mounted that way? I have a Ford 80 that needs a new seat, and I have a spare seat, but it looks like I would loose some leg room that way. Anything might be better than what I have now. I have the box filled with firewood and a hunting seat cushion on top.
Well, I had to do a bit of a conversion to get the seat low enough. I had to mount it right on top of the 2 i-beams of the frame and place it another 4 or 5 inches further back. The new seat has a shock inside but the mounting mechanism throws it forward, hence the need for the seat to be mounted further back. The fenders do not like to be that far back and start to foul on the tires so I needed to hack the fenders a bit and move them further up and out. It can be done and does work well - just a bit of effort to get it there.
