Well, this summer, I pulled my 1938 F30 narrow tread in the 5500 class and the 6500 class. Both times, I ran out of traction just as the governor kicked in. I know 5-10 feet is alot in a tractor pull, but that old F30 stayed within 10 feet of the SM's and similar. They ran out of power, I ran out of traction. Go figure.
I have done nothing to that engine except tune it up, adjust the valves and redid the carb (stock).
a tuned up M, that isn't "tired" will pull and pull well. Get the timing right, make sure the valves are seating and adjusted correctly. Clean, correctly set carb. Let 'er rip. she will run good. If she is tired and a little worn out, not so much.
If you are truly looking to spend a little money and get the biggest bang for the buck. New rings, hone the sleeves, valve job, and get the carb/governor right. she will surprise you.

|I am reading the service book |
about the governor. I looked at
the settings on my tractor. I
think some one was playing with
it. The high idle speed
adjusting screw does not touch
the tuck the case or stop. And
the same with the low speed
screw. The spring just hangs
there on the idol setting of the
throttle. I have a picture of
it. I can't load it off my
phone.it will only let me email
