I have to say I didn't mount this engine on this tractor. I bought it from a coworker and he didn't like it. He bought a Ford tractor and sold me this one. I bought it to rake hay. It works really good for that. I have used it more that I thought I would. Who ever did this took a lot of tinkering around to get it this way. I've owned the tractor for about 4 years now.
