I have stock 13,19,26 gears and am considering trying 3rd this thurs to see how it goes. Then i am stuck with 2nd because the rest of the pulls are on tar.
Thank you guys for the kind words and help!

I tried 3rd gear and about 3/4 of the way thru the pull. The transmission started popping/slipping gears so i didnt let it get too bogged down and turned it down.
Came back at the end of the class and went back to 2nd. I got 4th out of 13 tractors. In the next 2 weeks off i am going to work on getting a little more power out of this motor and possibly put a set of gears in it. I am debating between a 10% od or a 20-22 tooth combo.
