Dont have a pic right now, but i just use a 3 inch diameter circle, about 1/2" thick.

Do NOT put the hitch above the axle, you will flip over as soon as you let the clutch out, if you have traction

I need to make something like that. Is that a cub rear end? How much does it take to build a motor?

The frame etc. isnt a concern, my dad builds stuff like that everyday.

yes its a cub diff housing but everything inside has been replaced. Dodge Dart Carrier and axles and aftermarket gears and shafts. You can look at my build in Building another puller..

I just read my rules about hitches it says altered hitches may not exceed 12 inches .waiting for an answer on what is a altered hitch and height of wheelie off the ground.i am building a hitch and want to build it to the rules so I don't want to show up and not being to pull because of the wrong size or placement of hitch or height of wheelie wheels.

cant remember if its 12 above axle or ground, i think ground. Altered hitch is one you made, or modified.
