Might sound like a silly question but I've never actually seen one. Do those bolt up to a regular 8-speed?

A determined individual with a welder and a drill can make anything fit!

Why not add a "spare tire" to your design, kind of like the old cars that had the spare mounted on the front running board. 

Then you can fill and adjust the spare weight as desired.     

 

 

Picturing that in my head, I like the idea for looks alone!

That tractor frame you are using is it a long frame or short frame?

Long frame from a 3,4,500 series.

It has the second set of step support bars.

Just found a bit of inspiration for you!              Image result for duck dynasty lawn mower           :ychain:

Been too busy with work the last few days to do anything but move the project around in the shed a couple times.

I did find a spacer for the length to go between the frame and transmission.

 

Our fabrication friend is getting me a piece of 6 x 6 tube steel cut to 7" length.

I'll cap one side and leave the hole facing downward to access the bolts.
