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.

Sound like your engine will be similar to my LLSS is.  I also used the green rods and Edsen and Robbie picked the parts for the build.  Hope to see you run some day.

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.

The double cut 20.8's hand made or can you buy them that way now? I see firestone builds a puller tire now but was thinking they were 30.5's.

There are a couple of manufacturers that are making a 20.8X38 just for pulling. https://www.propullertires.com/home.html

Did not know that. See they even make 18.4x38's.
