Some of those Toro's have a Mitsubishi K3D in them as my 322D has. It runs the Sunstrand off the front end. Has a big flywheel on the back end.

I think alot of the diesels turn that way.  Cub Cadet put the Kubota D600 in backwards to make it work correctly in the older diesel Cub Cadets.  Made for a long radiator hose as Cub put the rad up front instead of burried in the console like JD did on the 330/332.   Mike

They are ALL the same rotation.  You MUST run the hydro off the water pump end of the crank with water cooled diesels.  I'm not sure on all air cooled units as some military air cooled diesels are kinda odd.

  If you want to retain the front pto, you'll need to keep the engine size much smaller than a V2203!

No I got me a frame stretcher lol I am thinking of stretching the frame and making the front frame a little wider and cutting up a spare hood to add to this one so it will look stock but not

That Kubota engine is huge for gt standards. I would look for something no larger that a 1105 series as adapting the crank to fit gt parts will keep a machine shop in the $$$ for months ;-) If you go with the smaller units you may be able to purchase just about everything needed to attach the hydro drive and pto stuffs.
Stretching the frame is an option but can cause all kinds of issues for your attachments later on. If it is just goung to tow around a wagon then fine... But mowing, snow throwing, or what ever else may use front or center pto attaching impements could have issues.
Also tractor Balance front to rear, too much nose weight and you will be spinning everywhere.

My personal prfeference is to make things look and work as if it was a factory install and conpletely intensional by the factory. I dont mind custom hot rods, but perfer a factory version because of practicality, ease of service and parts availability.
How ever you choose, have fun and document it every step so we can follow along :-)

Called two guys today that fab frames for race cars and build engines he said throw two feet of frame at it and 6 inches of width and that will allow for the battery and added engine space given dim. Of the 2203 should move the pto forward about four to six inches and the rest is for the fan and radiator and battery to even out the extra 260 pounds to get some more weight to the back of the tractor so it don't just be way to front heavy he is going to do some weight calculations on it in a couple weeks to relocate mule drive and weight distribution
