  1. Cool pictures, if those pullers had new turbos, they would have been tough. My engine builder says they were under 1200 horsepower until early 80'ies. I am making a lot more HP with single turbo now. Thanks for sharing the picture.
  2. Had good night at Benton County fair. I beat 4 tough tractors. Enjoy.
  3. Needs more water to keep from burning the turbo up LOL. Amazing power steam engines make. Thanks for sharing.
  4. Pulled with WTPA nice run but not enough HP ended up in back half of class. I was still very happy because the tractor ran and did not break.
  5. Thanks I was happy that it ran. Still waiting my good pump. I am down on HP and was in back of the pack of LLSS in WI. Hopefully parts for pump will show up this week. have good one.
  6. Yes, the princess dethroned the King. I talked to him yesterday and I think he figure out what was wrong.
  7. After much work and waiting on parts got back on track Friday, ran against HSS tractors. Was like taking hickory stick to gun fight. I used it as testing opportunity. https://youtu.be/K4roRzx5tp4
  8. Here is why I am so anal about proper wheelie bars. One accident could end pulling when insurance gets too expense to buy. Be careful and have fun.
  9. I understand you thinking, but the way they measure area is the area that first contacts the surface. If you get a tough Tec. person you may not be able to pull. The main thing is being safe and having fun.
  10. Here is close up of my hitch. There is brace that goes up to hitch point on transmission housing. I would be careful about using pipe for foot. Below is NTPA requirements a lot of association follow them. I would just roll front edge up. I would hate to see not allowed to pull because your wheelie bars are not correct. Minimum requirements for the wheelie bars are as follows - A: 10"maximum above ground. B: The back of the wheelie bar is to extend 5" behind the tire radius. Pads - 5" square minimum, spaced minimum of 20" from outside each pad.
  11. My hitch uses pto cover and hitch anchor point on transmission case. Will try to get better picture next time I at the shop.
  12. Great run and great for you helping young puller get started. If the sport of pulling is going to continue, we need the next generation involve.
  13. When across certified scale last Saturday, the good news is total weight loss was 300 lbs. Tractor 285 lbs. and driver 15 lbs. so far.
  14. One think that has not been mentioned is if you have accident even if not your fault if don't have proper license your insurance company can refuse to cover you. I know some horse people that found out the hard way. Just something to think about. Do you want to lose the farm over not have correct driver's license?
  15. Good luck, be safe and have fun.
