I have been debating what I want to do for a pulling tractor and I really like the looks of my 147 but would like to have it gear drive. I would rather not molest my 147 to make it gear drive either. So my question is did Cub make another narrow frame that looks like my 147 with the 14 or 16 hp Kohler in gear drive?

I forgot to add that the other thing I thought about doing is I really like the Cub 100 with the round fenders and putting a 14hp Kohler in it.

Can not answer your question.The 100 series w/Std. trans. were tough little devils to out pull but did get it done on occasions w/ our MF 10.

Hydro does consume some of your power before it gets to the ground and standard is all about gear ratio and tire size to get it to the ground.

Odd numbers are hydro, even are gears. For most models there is a gear drive brother, but I can't find anything to match with your tractor.

I think I might have to just do a 100 and shoehorn a 14hp Kohler in it. I have also thought about the idea of turning the MF12G I have into a puller.

It doesn't appear that IH built a geared "brother" for your 147,or at least I can't find anything.

We had to increase the spring tension on the Vari-Drive a bit and then it would hold what the engine throw at it. Also if I remember correctly the 10 and 12s had pulley on the drive axle that you could adjust the width to match gear ratio to power. Been a while since I saw one.

IH made the 106 and 126. The 106 has a 10 hp Kohler, while the 126 has the 12 hp Kohler. They are in the same series, as your 147. You could get either of those models and add a 14 hp engine. They look just like the 147.

The thing I like about the 147 is how the frame is notched out from the factory to fit the 14hp in the narrow frame. I really like the looks of the original and the 100 so I may just look for one of them. I only plan on ever pulling in the stock class and everything will bolt on to factory bolts so it won't harm the tractor for value.

I may eventually get into the more modified pulling but my pocket book isn't that deep right now nor will it probably ever be LOL.

126 is as close as you will get, both are narrow framed and were built from 1969-1971

if you want to add a 14 hp you would need a 147 notched frame or use a 12 hp flywheel on the 14 to fit it. I have a 100 with a 14 and 12 hp flywheel. lots of power

I would love a 100 with a 14 or 16 Kohler on it. You gotta post some pics of your 100 Rich. :D

I can't see all the features of your tractor, but my 102 looks similar. It had the original fenders removed and the fenders off of a 1450 installed.HPIM2583.jpg

I like the way that looks with the same rear fenders as my 147. That is what I didn't like about the 125 I had was the fenders. I love the round fenders on the original and the 100 though.
