I have a super 88. It is a stock tractor. Would like to pull with it. I read or heard that you can change the gears to make it pull better. What gear ratio would I use?? How much work would be involved to change this?? Where would I find the gears. Thanks in advance Old Bob

How do you know that you don't already have the gears in question? What is your transmission code?

Bob, I would try it with the stock gears first unless you are building a big engine and need more speed. chuck

Is this a gas? As tramway said check your ser#. If it ends in 801 you have the reg. gears.
804 is slow speed trans. I would focus on the engine, not the trans. 3 7/8" pistons, 1650 intake/exhaust and carb would be a good start in waking up the engine.

I got the 3 7/8 pistons. Have to check on the rest.
