Lee, I had the next size down from yours with only a twin in it and it would pull my 60" box scraper full of sump fill ( that's sandy clay for those who don't know , its made of the silt from washed sand for masonry ) with ease ! That blade should be no challenge!!

That's a sharp tractor in what looks to be VERY good condition.  Very glad she's a ready worker now!

Glad to hear you have it going. A clogged exhaust is the last thing I would have thought of.  Probably should not have been? The Two Stroke Motorcycles I rode back in the day all had removable baffles and cleaning them was as common as changing spark plugs.  Years ago I had a 71 Buck LeSabre with 455, 4bbl it got so it would barely run and I found the baffles had come loose in the muffler and restricted the exhaust.
