Do a single keyword search for "pulling" and you'll find many discussions on this topic. Consensus is manual tranny w/ a Kohler K-series single cylinder. Also, I suggest you make your question a little more specific.

Kohler is a better eng. choice for this.Many more performance parts are avail.If using anAC or Sim tractor,,make a heavy duty clamp for axle tube on rt. side by diff. a VERY weak area for this machine,,hydros take 2hp or so to run so man trans is preferred,, good luck,,

My son and I have been pulling for 3 years with a AC917 and a 3314V Sim. (we are putting a K361 in the 3314 this winter). Any specific questions and I will let you know what we know and have learned. Good Luck! Mike S.

Most pullers use the "wide-frame" Cub Cadet and three speed transmission set up with a drive belt from engine driving the whole thing rather than the clutch. Certain Kohler engines are good for pulling tractors and some are not. Just adding a little info on my limited knowledge. Just relating of what I have seen on a few of them as my nephew has a "puller". I guess the drive belt set ups are more controllable and forgiving "off the line" than the Cub clutches.. I believe you can find in the I-net all rules and regulations for your tractor.
