Are the footrests on a G series the same as on a short frame 8000 series tractor?

I have a very nice G that needs new footrests. I was thinking I could cut them off a parted out 8000 series tractor.

Thanks!

Unless your Pro-G is an early model with a hand fwd/rev lever, the 8000 tractor will not have the correct slot cutout on the left-side footrest for the left brake. Post #583 of my 816 thread shows the difference.
(The slot can be cut fairly easily though)
(I’d link you directly to that post but I’m on my phone and it is not an easy thing to do)

Thanks. The slots are probably an easy mod. Are the lengths the same between a short frame and long frame? I'm thinking they are but don't have access to a short frame 8000 to measure.

My tractor is a newer one with the Briggs engine and electric hydraulic.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking. All the added length is in the frame ahead of the footrests.
