I'm located in the southern tier of NY an will be using a stock driveline with ag tires is all. Any tips will help greatly I'm either going to put the motor in the cub 149 chassis or the jd 112 chassis.

The best thing to do, is find a club you want to pull with. Every club has different rules. Clubs that over lap into the same area may have stock class but different rules.

Hydros aren't the most efficient for pulling. Too much HP drawn from hydro unit. Gear drive Cubs are the most popular from what I have seen.

i havent found any clubs local as of yet but im still looking my though for using the hydro was when my daughter is old enough to pull on her own it would be easier for her to use at first, or if the wife want to give it a try it would be easier for her then messing with the clutch.

I would still start them off with a clutch and heres my reason. Once theyve been using the hydro for awhile and it comes time to start using the clutch, its going to be like starting all over again versus starting out with a clutch will be easier and theyll know how to handle it. Thats just my 2 cents worth. Been doing this for 18 years. And no offense but the hyrdo wont hold for long especially with it being 40+ years old.

never pulled a JD but if its anything like the sears setup you may need a double spring for the pulley setup so it doesnt slip the belt. They seem to do with lighter sleds and not so much heavier sleds.
