Dave,
Same hot-rodding techniques work on these old
tractors as on cars. Look for an LP C or CA,
they had more compression. Either use the head
from the LP engine or have your head milled,
no more than .030. Can't go too high on the
compression or you'll burn a piston. More gas
means more power. Try getting a replacement carb
and modify it (so you can go back to the original
if it doesen't work) by enlarging the main jet a
little. If you use a drill bit, use the smallest
one that just won't go into the jet. Then the next
one and so on until you find the best size. CA's
will respond to these kinds of mods, just be sure
the mods won't get you disqualified!

Good luck,
Phil
