Excuse my ignorance. Can I assume the 782D has a front radiator? Looking at a thread of a 1512, I see a front radiator, is the 1512 and 782 physically the same?
Cut to the chase: I have a Kabota 3 cylinder gas at my disposal. I'm kicking around putting that engine in to replace my K17. Big issue would be water cooling it. Are there cooling radiators out there that will Bolt into a 782?

OK.. So there are 'stock' radiators out there that can be bracketed to fit up front and still give me room to get the engine in. Hmm I see a battery where the gas tank now lives

fuel tank was likely relocated to under the seat I'm guessing. Have seen a few fabricated that way. Not sure if there is a huge advantage there or if its because of limited space??

It's relocated due to limited space. Side benefit of the fuel tank in the very back is slightly better traction. One of the reasons the Cyclops tractors have their tank in the back.

A few questions while we are on 782D radiators.
(1) Are there known replacement radiators which will fit? Improve cooling in those 90+ degree days. My radiator has a few tubes cut and blocked off - Have problems with overheating on hot days and high rpms.

(2) Is there advantage with radiator behind engine like on the newer diesel models? My front mount radiator’s screen constantly blocking air flow with debri.

Thanks. Bob G.
