How strong is the gearbox housing

Recommended Posts

We are on the final stretch to this pulling tractor project before the next fair. I was wondering if the gearbox housing is strong enough to pull off of. I have the hitch bolted with 3 bolts. Two on the top of the gearbox under the seat and one through the large bottom hole on the gearbox. I am thinking about attaching wheelie bar bracket to the left and right side of this hitch. Would this be to much stress on these three points? The tractor has a factory wheelhorse plow still attached. I was thinking about leaving it on for added front end weight.

You will run out of traction long before you would damage the transmission case.

Thanks guys. I'll get those brackets welded up tomorrow. 

 

My my son is pulling in the Jr. Stock class, so the tires need to be turf tires. Every day he gets more excited with the progress of the tractor and that his first pull is coming soon.
