First you need to check with your local club for their rules and determine which class you want to run. That will dictate what modifications you are allowed to do and what engine you can use.

Also your posts will be easier to read if you use punctuation.

First of all you have a great model Cub to start with in my opinion and your off to a good start. Like Farmallgray says check with the club you are going to pull with and get back to us and we can direct you better. Building a pulling tractor can be very involved depending on the class of tractor it will be. Even a stock tractor can be complex on all the small details one needs to know if you want a reliable machine. From an outsiders standpoint watching a garden tractor go down the track it seems pretty simple but it isn't and that's what make it fun to me.
