I did this swap several years ago on my 51 A and lost 415 lbs. Hope this helps.

720 puller that's what I was wondering...
Let me ask you this, was it beneficial for pulling? Are you better off being able to move the weight around? This is a direct swap if the wheels are from say a '45 A or similar right?

Before the swap I only had 140 lbs. to hold my front end down. If the scales were off a little I would stand it up at 5500 lbs. For me it was beneficial, it gave me more weight to balance out my tractor. My goal was to go to 4500lbs. , but I did not remove anything else and did not keep the tractor.
