Rocky, this is just for fun. My whole family has been involved in racing/ engine building my cousin has a engine building/ dyno shop he builds stock car engines for many drivers around our area, and built the engine for the car Tony Stewart drove to victory a Lebanon Valley speed way .If you want it to go fast, I got connections. But, pulling heavy loads is a whole different ball of wax. If you search You Tube there are tons of videos, it's a well established sport in parts of the mid-west. Complete with miniature weight transfer sled, like the big tractors use, and the whole 9 yards. This, like Lawn Mower Racing, started out as a low dollar sport, and has graduated to the same old "costs lots of money to compete" stupidity seen in everything.

I have Drag race cars,. and ran on the dirt tracks around here. Those days are long gone for me.
Ray Everham contacted my cousins shop after Tony Stewart won that 200 lap race, and had him built an engine for a driver he sponsored .
My cousin got started tuning Shirley Muldowneys corvette she use to drag on the streets of Albany & Schenectady NY. Before she became a star on the drag strip.
Hey no primers, I have the same model wheel horse. Mine was made in 1988 and was my dads. Nice little tractors.
They don't make them like that anymore.Good stuff, I had a Wheelhorse, was my Dads. I got a pic with my daughter on it somewhere.
Just so you don't think iam full of BS. I just stopped at one of my cousins, shops, Danny has 15 engines on the floor, waiting for rebuilds, some are new blocks. One on the Dino . Danny said write now, if another engine doesn't come in the shop he's got enough work to keep him busy till late November. That one eng, with # 93 on the lift plate ,the guy wrote on the valve cover how many laps are on the engine .670 .You may have to manufacture your own custom header. If so, do a search for exhaust bends, purchase assorted pieces, and cut and piece it together. Mig weld joints to build a made to order exhaust. Many of these parts are avaialble on Amazon so they can maybe be had rather quickly.
Unless of course one of the racing relatives has a tubing bender that'll bend lawn mower exhaust tubing.
