I found a cheap set of firestones that were wider and mounted them on a set of combine wheels.

The tires are 14.9 26s give me a little more bite.

I wanted to continue to lighten up the tractor and the nose was still pretty heavy in the light classes.

I decided to run small 12" trailer wheels and tri ribs on the front



The bolt pattern was not the same so I had to open up the center hole and then drill new holes in the hubs and through bolt them.

So the tractor runs great and I started this past season pretty happy. I was still moving a lot of things around on the tractor. I still couldn't quite get the front end light in 3500 so I started looking for a wc lightweight front pedistal

Here is what I found



I cut the 1/2 flange off the back. The lightweight front is 100lbs lighter.


Here it is mounted up

So overall I was very happy with the progress this season. I am slowwly getting to where I want to be.

The motor runs great and have great power. I have most everything dialed in besides tires.... Need bigger tires.

My local track has a 15.5 38 limit and my competition all runs 13.6 or 15.5. I am always just a few feet behind them with my little 26s

it needs more weight on the nose' it will do a lot better' when it comes up like that you lose your drawbar height' your tires are working' if you keep the front down' it will take some motor then. because it will make the tires work more. also looks like the tires are a little soft' may need aired up a tad will also help keep your drawbar height' we run 20'' in' height.

Thanks for the input. I definitely am still working on my weight placement. This winter I am building a better more adjustable hitch. I also need to start bumping up my psi as I go up in classes.

Thanks

Ideal weighting/balance is where you can just slide a sheet of paper under the front wheels as you spin out. Good luck hitting that every time !!!

Thanks I definitely always lean towards a lighter front. Need to change my habit.

Questions on tires. I am going to buy a complete diesel rear ( transmission to finals). Looks to be a direct bolt on does that sound right?

I am still debating between 13.6 and 15.5 38s

My track I can run 15.5s but some other local tracks I have heard 13.6 for anything 4500lb and under. Opinions on that?

Depends on the rules where you pull and what classes/Divisions.   
  NATPA DivII is 170 sq inches of tire or less on 4500# and down  which is 13.6 x38 (168) or 14.9 x 28 (170)
4500#-6500# max sq inch is 229.  I run 5000# + with the UC and have 16.9x34 (229)
Div III is 18.4x 38 max tire size
My club uses NATPA rules.

Ok motors out and it's time to start stripping it down. The front cover is giving me fits.

What's the big bolt with the jam nut for?

Everything else is out and it won't budge.... Granted I didn't try real hard yet I didn't want to break anything so I wanted to do a little research first.

While you're practicing with your tires see if you can find some used ones at a tractor tire store or better yet see if you can find some on this forum, while they may be weather cracked some you're not taking a chance of buying the wrong tire and sinking a bunch of money in something that isn't going to work for you. Those two boys of yours look like they're having a blast. You'll win more with them than you will with the tractor I'm afraid.

Thanks for the response. Progress has slowed up for a bit. I am working 6 days a week and having some family Heath issues so free time is a premium. I don't know if tires are going to happen this winter or not but it's ok either way. She will pull next summer regardless.

Well unfortunately I didn't get a lot of work done on the Allis this winter. I pulled the motor and re sealed most everything. Got it all back together and am not chaising some coolant leaks. I will be running the same tires as last year.   Should be fun either way
