    Was cutting some steel for a sleeve hitch build for a customer and while I had the drill and cutoff within cord reach, I made the notches to slide the engine back. Notched under the battery tray, back of engine mounting plate, side of pedestal, and clutch arm. Crank now lines up! Just need to notch left side of frame and drill out new oil drain location to remove the blocks that are holding the engine up, then I can mark and drill engine mounting holes!

    I haven’t had a chance to touch this tractor in a while, but I’ve been thinking about possibly putting taller tires on it. I’m thinking about 20x8s on the back and 15x6 on the front. The reason being is that (like my 112) the deck doesn’t lift that high. I mow at 2-1/2 or 3” depending on the season, and that leaves the gauge wheels hanging down pretty low. I’m thinking that they should fit without interfering, but since I’m still fitting the engine, the deck is in the shed and the tractor is up on stands. Anyone with a 60 or 70 with a deck on mind seeing if there would be a fitment issue?

    The 60/70 transmission has a 1 inch axle and there are 5 bolt 1 inch hubs so you can put 5 bolt wheels on. The ones in the picture are from an MTD but wheel Horse, Sears and a few others used them also. A 20 inch tire is about the biggest that will fit. Roger

    I think those little tractors look better with less gap between the tire and fender. I think there should be enough room up front to fit the 15” front tires as well without contacting the deck. I don’t want to loose any turning radius, so I’ll probably just wait until I get the engine done and get the deck back under it to measure the clearance around the left front. Might even just slide the front wheels off my 111 to check the clearance.
