    With the added height, will the hydraulic lifting ram be able to lower the mower deck enough?

    i think i can adjust that quite easily on linkage, i use it a lot to fetch and carry with a frame i made made for the front so its a dual purpose vehicle now.
    I think 15.3 inch wheels will do for the front to go with the rear 10.5 but some confirmation would be nice before i start cutting metal, the gear ratio front to back would be best info

    The front tires are 23" tall x 10.5 wide on a 12"rim.The rears are 16" tall x 6.5 wide on an 8" rim. If you are just going to put on a wider tire it has no effect on gear ratio.

    Thanks for the reply, i am looking to put the larger front wheels on the rear to get more ground clearance so its the size of new front wheels i need to know to maintain the same gear ratio

    You are only going to have enough room for abou a 2" taller tire on the front unless you remove the fenders. That wouldn't be worth the trouble. The front tires won't bolt on the back so you would need different rims.
