Its 3160 witha half tank of gas....I could strip the battery and box, the starter, the PTO shaft and run her with a couple gallons of gas but if I still dont make 3000 it will be wasted work and time so I opted to run it light at 3750 just to have funbertman said:I think them tires will work to your advantage!!! Going from 24 to 28 is a good thing. What class you getting in? we have 3000 4000 and 6000 for antique
I wish I had the time and the ambition :| its got the big gov spring and a few other goodiesbertman said:HELIUM! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Should shave a few pounds and make you talk funny LOL
Im just getting into the pulling scene so Im learning as I go
Whats the rpm set at? We can go 10% over factory spec so you should be able to goto a wd45 or d15?? governor spring to get a few more rpms
Find some suitcase weights and build some brackets just in front of the rear wheels.
I wanted the 3000lb but I dont want to strip the old tractor down....I dont have 500lbs of suitcases or the hangers at this point. I have some old ugly weights that I can put on and may if I get some energy on friday :lol: The pull is saturdayBigDaveinKY said:Derrick, If you're gonna run her in the 3750#, add about 500# of weight. You'll still be good for that class, and be happier with your pull.
Allis W series 28" wheel weights were 135# apiece. Four would give you 542#, with hardware.
I see them on Craigslist and E-bay quite a bit, around $100-$150 a pair.
Thanks, I love how they look compared to the old square looking radials that were on itacfan55 said:looks great
Track was harder than I expected and I had 11 in......some other pullers were in the 9lb range but had more horsepower than me to turn thembertman said:Whats the tire pressure? We run 9 to 11 psi depending on track conditions
