i have a 14 year old daughter thats going to pull in a stock class with a JD 112 . im know i need to get this thing down to just what it need to pull and get rid of the rest but what else do i need to do ? is the high performance belts ?
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 max hitch height is 13 inches,nothing above nothing below.13 inches.
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.

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.
im going to keep this as stock as i can . i hope when we are done it looks like i can put the deck under it and mow . she wants to call it ( MOWLATER )

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.
