I like the idea of the Farmall 460 with the 301.
Looking for a club with "stock" classes and speed limits are the best way I would start. I have come to see a lot more smiling faces in stock classes these days.
Obviously, club rules and general competition really sways what you do and without that being known, its hard to say what you should do.
I would prefer to aim at 3500# class or lighter if you can. Smaller equates to cheaper. Less weights to buy (then move), less trailer to buy, and can easily be hauled with "half ton" pickup.
Even getting into stock pulling gets expensive with the huge tractors, its way beyond what I can do.

If it were allowed, I want to experiment with a turbo farmall H. I think I have an ideal candidate for such, a distillate H. Its already low compression. I don't know how it'll go, or when I will get around to it but I know it'll be interesting someday.
Some simple fab skills and a turbo from a junkyard 4 cylinder gas car should be a good start.

You want to run the 435 at Louisville for the vintage antique pullers group? What are the rules for the class the allis is in? And speed limit or anything or anything goes? Isn't the engine a 426 in it? Turboed I assume? Wouldn't think you would need much more,lol

Find a creeper gear A JD. Open it up and you can pull 5000-7500. Not so much fun to watch but seen them run with the big ones.

Our club like welding man's keeps it simple for us it's all about traction with a speed limit of 3.5mph all the horsepower in world is useless unless you can make the tires stick to the track. For me throttling back works best near the end of the pull tractor is almost back to idle with frontend pointing skyward.

You can pull 3.5 to 4 mph with a 310 and be competitive. Find a 66 front end. And put trailer hubs on it. Makes up some of the weight difference of the 310.

Ok as a non turbo diesel? I have 14.9"s on it and plan to pull 3-4 mph. Did you have time to look for the old antique puller magazine. If you don't find it, if you can email me the mans phone number that published the magazine, thanks John
