Hello and welcome! Cub cadets are the main source for diesel pulling. Ih this going to just be for fun to play with or something you can toy with and move on up? You would use a cub 3 speed tranny for a rearend but you could use a hydro if an absolute last resort you would just have to run it off the front pulley. You can use a 582 frame or wide frame though you will be limited with the wide frame like i am (check my videos out) Just to let you know ahead of time youll have a alot of time and money invested in it. Youll need a good clutch and a good rearend to holdup to all that torque. Youll need a good turbo and gauges to keep an eye on things. If you read the other post about the newbie diesel puller i put a good bit of info in there and answers to different questions. Good luck! P.S post us some pics :)

If your not going wild the Allis body works good, you can start with the stock rear and if you want to raise HP it's not hard to add a cob style rear with the better internals.

 This one's not mine  has a 20hp diesel twin in it. Same as were building for our 20hp class

Welcome to the asylum. What I don't know about diesels would fill up library's. Hope someone can answer your questions.
