Stock class rules vary greatly from club to club. What is ok in one club, may not be in another. Find a club that you want to pull with and go watch, ask for a copy of their rules, ask questions, take pictures. As mentioned before, Brian Miller's site is good for general information. Basic things would be the hitch, wheelie bars, and kill switch. The main things that differ between the clubs are tire size, hitch height, and engine mods. Good luck to you. My daughter was 14 when we started also.

Our rules state for stock classes:

6. Maximum tire size: 23x10.5x12 bar tires or original size turf tires. Maximum drawbar height is fourteen (14) inches.

Again,tire size,type ect are depending on clubs,and their rules.My tractor couldnt pull your stock class but could pull stock modified or stock altered with your club I think.

I have no knowledge of the pulling world, but what is amazing to me is what is called "stock". To me "stock" is exactly that....nothing changed from original. You see very very few TRUE stock tractors in pulling from GT's to the big boys.

In our area,Southern New England, Stock is pretty much stock.23-10.50 12 tires, stock motor, motor has to have been available with tractor when New, no cut tires,3600r.pm. stock wheelbase, mufflers.
We monitor engine modifications by outlawing gear reduction starters , billet flywheels, and use of Chevy points. We find if you modify an engine internally you will raise the compression to a point where the "stock" starter will not turn the motor over.
About the only thing we allow is gear ratio changes.

you can go to our webiste and see our engine mod rules for all the classes we pull,8 hp up open motorcycle engine tractors.With mine,I have the engine torn down right now,but putting in new rod bearings,carb is ported,just doing some touch up polish work inside now and new rings too.There are some carb tricks I learned on Brian Miller that really work well,we can run cut tires in all our classes from stock to motorcycle. The website is WWW.Commonwealthpullers.org.Plenty of photos if you wanna browse round,for sale stuff too.

It's alot of fun. My son pulls in a 4-H club, he is 15 now. We have changed engines added Tractors, and changed hitch/ wheelie bar setups. Oh, don't let me forget the weight distribution. one tractor is diled in the other is on the 4th go round. about the belt thing any belt from say Tractor supply will do but replace them every year
