  1. 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.
  2. My hitch uses pto cover and hitch anchor point on transmission case. Will try to get better picture next time I at the shop.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. Good luck, be safe and have fun.
  7. EXProduct ST3314 HAUST GAS TEMP, PRO STEPPER MOTOR, 52MM, BLK, 0-2000 °F Product ST3314 . I have probe installed under turbo is standard position. Have you checked timing on the pump more timing less exhaust heat. You all would not want to know how high my EGT's run ever with water injection. Good luck.
  8. I only use auto meter EGT Gauge rated to 2000-degree F. My opinion if you are going to run any gauge make sure it's accurate.
  9. Just let me know. You will see some neat engineering.
  10. Dale, next time you're coming to the twin cities area, I would be willing to arrange for you to tour and meet the King of Smoke. Let me know. Travel safely.
  11. I use RTV gasket maker and never have had leak on my 400 series engine.
  12. Looks like we lost 200 lbs off the rear end. That's what we were hoping for.
  13. I don't know. I have pressure lube rear end so only run 2 to 3 gallons of hy tran. I have heard of issues long term with foam. My tractor has run this system since 94. Good luck.
  14. Cage is done and mounted on tractor. Will be interesting to see how much total weight was lost.
  15. Check your grounds. I have seen poor ground cause all lights to blink.
  16. I am hoping someone has the bearing and seal # for outer end of rear axle of a 656. Thanks in advance for the help.
  17. Yes give the King a call and he may tell you want he up to.
  18. Got them from Atlas Tractor. Very high quality.
  19. Update, cage complete assembled, polished, primed and first coat of paint on. Second coat tomorrow and then it will be done.
  20. Started doing finish welding. Joel is an artist with welder.
  21. The tractor should weight around 5200 lbs. when done. Hoping to have 750 lbs. of moveable weight. Now need to have driver lose some weight.
