    Default Installing engine

    I put the 460 in today hooked up the pump drive !!
    Where the Motor mounts bolt up the drive line is 1 1/2" high .
    It fit OK but is this to much?

    I had to cut the rear plate about an inch to get it to line up. Remember, cut in small increments so you don't go under, and watch the pan clearance on your loader grate bolts.

    Here you go. Pick one!

    I used the 10" X 33" 11 Gallon in the Hydro.

    Keep in mind if you get one of these, they only come with a single 1/4" bung in the bottom, which I kept as a drain hole.
    I had my local welder put in a #10 bung feed in bottom, #8 return in top, and a #6 vent in the top for like $40.00.
