If I were you, I'd be trying to add as little length as possible to the frame, or maneuvering is going to become very awkward. I don't see why you need all that extra frame ahead of the engine, and the exhaust and air cleaner can be rerouted. I'd also consider moving the radiator and fan and use a setup similar to the CC diesels. That will fit a lot better in there, and you may find you barely need to lengthen the frame at all.
I'm trying to find a proper picture - what is different with the 782D set up from CC Matt? I'm brain farting now..... aren't the engines in backwards in them too?
I want to make sure I have a long enough frame to keep the loader posts to the front of the floor boards. As it is these tractors aren't the easiest for a 6 foot guy to get onto with arthritis. Trying to make sure I have the least amount of obstructions. I wish it had the room a 982 did between the steering wheel and seat. Trying not to chop the frame up too much.
