Ds for pullers?

I have a DC4 in pieces that I would like to get rebuilt. I am also looking at buying a DI. One of these would be a parts tractor, and one would be rebuilt and pull in a stock class. With the other, if I have enough left over, I would like to try and fit a small diesel engine, maybe a 4bt.
My question is, which one would be better to leave stock and pull with vs. the diesel upgrade. Is there any advantage/disadvantage to pulling with a DI? Thanks,

Doug is correct-DC4 for pulling, DI for showing.

Gear ratios are different on the DI. Since the tires were usually smaller, the rear sprockets are too. My '51 DI is so heavy I wouldn't consider pulling with it without some serious modifications. The front axle, rear wheel brakes, radiator casting, etc. all look like someone forgot to stop pouring iron when they built it... gotta love Case! About the only thing lighter versus a normal D is the grille. There isn't a motor lift or a belt pulley and it has a foot clutch. Hope this helps.

I know Pastor John put SI gears in his SC to increase road speed. Would not a DI rearend have higher speed at each gear? Just learning as I go! gobble

As a stock puller, you don't want faster gears as it will go over the speed limit for stock tractors. I had to keep my L down in engine speed or it would break the ground speed limit!
