My brother pulled his 4cyl 4000 many times with no trouble. He ran 4000 and 4500. We also pulled a couple 6000's and now I run a 5200 with a select o speed, 18.4-38s, and a turbo. Have had nothing but good luck with them. We think they do a better job than a standard transmission. Beat several 600+ cube Minnes with a stock 6000 at 7500 and 8500lbs. We are kind of partial to select o speeds though. I guess thats why we have 10 of them. The only downside is shifting from 5th to 4th, if you wait too long and it is pulling down the hesitation is to long and it can get a little exciting when it hits 4th.

We rebuilt the throttle linkage to get more rpms out of the 961 we pulled and I did port and polish the head which made a big difference. That tractor ran real well and we took several wins at 4000 and 4500 with it running against 77 Olivers, Farmall H"s and WD Allis"s. Those things would not hurt you when you wanted to use it otherwise. We have since put a corn picker on the 961.
