Re: 1964 110 pulling ?
Ok I can talk from experience as I pull with a 1964 jd110 in the lawn stock class of my local club. the 8 hp kohler k181 is more of a problem than the transaxle... I too first thought the transaxle would break but the problem is the stock 8 hp kohler just doesn't have the grunt... my first pull I was all ready to go, my weight with me on the tractor was right at the class limit of 1000lbs, I hooked up to the sled and got the signal to go... when I let the clutch out the engine immediately bogged down and stalled... I didn't even pull the sled 6 inches, but after reviewing the rules of my league with the staff officials I found out as long as the engine is stock and 16hp or under, it doesn't have to be the same hp engine the tractor came with from the factory... but the rules of your pulling league might be different so check first

Pimping tractors takes Time, Patience, and most importantly Money. Unfortunately, I only have Time...
