Well I decided to make a weight bracket to hang more weights on the rear of the little puller after Saturday's pull.

I installed a front bracket too so that I can juggle weights where they are needed

We cannot have anything on the rear that will interfear with chain hook up, so what I did was where you welded the tubing

to the pan mount was drill a 1" hole thru there and hung about 40 lbs. of barbell weights there. No interferance and that really helped

Looks good Ralph.  Looks like the pulling bug bit you. :greetings-clappingyellow: 

I would really like to start a pulling league in our area.

I'll bee at 1500 lbs. Weight class now. I changed up the weights in the front to the same style like the rear so I can balance it out to keep the front low while it's pulling

How can we go about doing this ? Do you think there are enough people around who would go for it ?

I already know of numerous people in the area that are interested. I have been in talks with a local volunteer fire department that already do truck pulls 2 times a month to add a garden tractor division. We have contacted national quarter scale about regulations and class divisions. I'm trying.

How much weight is on the back? Looks like it is easy to adjust.

I found a hitch and a bottom plow for it and plan to use it for plowing and disking. Who knows ? maybe make a litttle side cash with it plowing gardens.

My next project is a 518-H. It has something wrong with the transmission but I'm working on it now. LOL ! My work is never done but I have fun doing it. If it proves to be too expensive to fix, I may take the Onan engine out of it and put it in a 310-8 chassis and make another puller with the spare parts.

Big Knob starts on the second Saturday of April. I'm pretty sure the fun starts at 1pm.

No. I do not at this time, but what I done was drill thru the seat upright's about half way between the diff to the seat pan and

used 1" round bar thru the uprights. The bar was long enough to hang the weights, 3 on each side between the upright's and the tires,

The solid bar weight right at 5lbs. and I could squeeze 2 more weights on there but it would be tight I hope  I explained it well enough and I will take some pictures

and try to post some up when I figure out to do it. Right now the tractors are in hibernation but it will soon be time to wake them up. 

Our pull season starts June 1st and we have 20 pulls scheduled for this summer, gonna be busy.
