Hi Oldman, I restored my 551 but with a 212 Predator. The standard trans was good when I got it and still is. My First Born mod has a 420 Predator and a Commando 8 manual 3 speed, 102 Cub Cadet axle and steering column that feels like power steering compared to the Suburban's fan gear.

I've heard of different cub parts incorporated into wheel horse pulling tractors, especially the 8 bolt rear. I'd like to see the steering mod., perhaps make use it myself one day? I wouldn't mind building one to see the pulling capacity even just here at home! Nice looking set up on those machines. good work.:handgestures-thumbupright:

My First Born goes well with my (almost) original Suburban. I plan to make a similar build to go with my 100 Cub Cadet I restored. The Cub drive train is the most popular for pulling but I have never competed. I like the "narrow frames" with the internal wet brake. Google images, search CC frames to see how they differ. This photo is my favorite (NOT MINE) Wheel Horse. The drive train is CC with the good looks of a Wheel Horse.

There is a Forrester, he has a very similar build using the same wheel horse with cub rear and it pulls like mad! Only his exhaust headers shoot out of the hood, flames! Huge Kohler V-Twinn! This one here is excellent!:text-goodpost:
