Looking to buy a antique pulling tractor soon. Which of these three can get lighter? Would the 400 12 spd trans be a better choice?

Will bore to 4.625 and do head and cam work. Would like to get in 4000lb class if possible.

Class is limited to 16.9/38's and 3.5 mph.

D,DC-3 or DC-4

Any of the D series might Make it BUT there wont be Much if any Moveable weight at 4000lbs

It will need tin or aluminum wheeles AND Striped to make the Class!

if you are going to use a d series find a 39-40 dc, the band brakes are alot better for pulling than the single or double disk brakes, you want something with individual turning brakes , as for front weight brackets national rule is 11 feet from the center of the rear axle to the front of the weights and is alot easier to do with a dc, with a d you need alot of support to get the bracket out that far, remember 100#'s at the legal distance is about like 200#'s right in front of the radiator

I already plan on stripping any and every unnecessary part off the tractor and atleast running pressed steel. I need to check the rules here about running aluminum wheels. I know what you mean about the disc brakes, my 830 brakes have been i nightmare.
Im no stranger to pulling. I have pulled many years in the "farm stock" (far from it) classes with great success, but this will be my first attempt at antique.
Also my old man is currently building a farmall 400 wheatland diesel, and i intend to show no mercy. Lol

I pull with a guy running a 400 Wheatland with an 830 propane engine in it. Very competitive in 5500 and up.

We just completed what I like to call an unstyled DC. It has a DC engine and tranny, D axels and brake pedals, CC front end, radiator, hood, gas tank, tranny cover, and seat. Weighs 3300 empty. We made adapter plates to bolt 9 bolt pressed steel rims on to the 6 bolt D axel flanges and welded trailer stub axels on the front and use 4x12 trailer rims and tires. We run 13.6x38 tires and do very well in the 3500 pound class.

That is just amazing. My RC weighed 2900 with an empty tank and cutoff spokes. Now it weigh 3600 with the cast wheels. And it is all of 18 HP.
