tractor pull qquestions

Rick Hi going to my first tractor pull and looking for advice on what gear to pull in tire pressure, track, fuel octane and anything else that will give me an edge... I have a 1950 JD B engine is not rebuilt..... Thanks in advance!


rich4 If you did not get any advise yet. Use lowest octane fuel. They were low compression unless high altitude pistons were used. Probably 1st gear, tire pressure would have to be experienced probably 12-13 lbs or enough to give the tire a little squash but not too much. Hitch around 20inch high if there is any adjustment. Try a pull and see what you need from there. Most successful pullers are the ones with the right weight balance and hitch location. Depending on your weight and class, you may need to add weight in front or mid point of tractor.
rich4 Another thing try and look at their pulling forum, lots of info there.
