    There are a couple of manufacturers that are making a 20.8X38 just for pulling. https://www.propullertires.com/home.html
  2. What USED to sell newspapers?

    I stopped getting our local newspapers almost a decade ago. Too much garbage reporting by penny loafer shod college grads. Unfortunate for all of us, in the climate of unchecked facts we all suffer.

    On the antique pullers I use a 110v planer to sharpen tires. This tractor will wind up with pro double cut 20.8X38s , when it is done.

    This will be a LONG term project, Dont know if I will finish in a year or 5.. Hope to take it to Wisconsin to hook with Badger State Tractor Pullers sometime before I am too old to do it. I am building a tube frame for it. Thinking of a coil over front end. The engine block is a late 468 big lifter block, I have custom pistons and special (green) rods for it. The 466 that is in the tractor is just for mockup..Someone forgot that water gets hard in the winter.(NOT ME)!! Getting a custom cam done in Wisconsin, roller lifters will be the stock truck units. Lemke tractor in Wisconsin made me some steel roller rockers and the aluminum front engine plate. . The flywheel and clutch assembly is a Hypermax 3 disc unit.

    The plan is to use my 5088 hood on it.. I have a fiberglass 1066 hood, but everyone has a 1066 puller.

    I had some large life changes.. Mostly doing the hermit thing for the last 2 years. Just now I have started to engage with people again.

    4th and 5th are overdrive. 5th is about 20% over. The trans has to be removed and taken apart to change ratios. But that is not too hard.

    Direct to the pinion The new transmission has its own reverse gear.

    I had Karl truck freight the trans to me.

    The rear engine plate is milled to fit a powerstroke starter. Steel flywheel is machined for a front ring gear..

    The cast housing is the stock 706-1486 transmission housing. It is milled out to take a twin countershaft 5 speed transmission. The 5 speed is a stand alone aluminum case transmission built for pull tractors.
