So Ive been pulling a bit with my 1973 Bolens G10 which is relatively stock and it does great. But I kind of want to build a tractor just for pulling competitions and the Bolens is my main work horse. So Im going to try to get a Cub IH or maybe a Roper RT10 considering I know where I can get one for 35 bucks. Question is, would you more experienced pullers recommend an RT10 and what engines and engine mods would you recommend? Should I lock the differential, H/O cams, What pulleys, chain drive conversion, carb adjustments, different carbs, intake mods, exhaust? Anything. Let me know. Thanks.

Get yourself a cub with a gear drive. Either a narrow frame or wide frame or something along the lines of a 582. Cubs have a huge aftermarket available for them as well. What class/classes will you be pulling? What rules are involved?
