My new pulling tractor update


Recommended Posts

Who's doing the engine work for you?  What class are you going to be in?

Nice!  With Esdon doing the engine, it should run!  Nice to see a new machine in the state again....

The gentleman I bought the chassis off of, is building a component  chassis and keep his motor.  Most of the motor will be used with modification.  Different crank to make it a 414 to fit class requirements.  To quote Edson it should be a nice hot rod.  Hope to make the Corcoran Lions pull for first run.

I have watched tractor pulling and looked at lots of purpose built machines but with no one near by building one I have a question I have always wondered about.

When your all done with a build like that, and it's competition ready, can it be used for anything other then that?  Does it end up being an all or nothing type machine?

Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate the work and effort that's been put into it 100% not to mention the knowledge that has been learned during the process.

 Since the beginning of time many advancements in engineering  technology  and performance have been learned on the track. Even car manufactures coined the phrase

"Win on race day , sell on Monday"   Im 99% sure they end up like a race car that is no longer able to function at anything less then WFO.

Long story short, could you hook up a seven bottom plow and rip the **** out of some dirt?

Has anyone ever seen a competition machine plowing?

Pulling would be the only thing that the tractor could be used for in current state.  I guess if you put stock motor in it you could drive it for tractor rides.  Just a toy for an old man.  I will warn you that if you ever drive a high horse power puller the bug can bit you hard.  I have drag raced and ride fast HD but the excitement of hear the RPMS come up and feel the old girl want to go is exciting.  A wise old man once said it is the best 13 second ride you have with your clothes on.  Think Spring.

Read once that 756 things HAVE to happen for a car/truck to start/move forward in a controlled state then stop.

These pullers only need 755 as stopping is a given... unless the hook breaks... or is it brakes...or is it... nevermind

looks like you got a good start to a great pulling tractor. i gotta ask, that 1206 you posted a video of, what does that have for an engine? looks like it runs pretty hard. me and my brother run an 806 with a 466 that runs pretty good most nights

Sorry to hear that this might be Bobby Dillon's last year of pulling.   I have been watching him most of my life.   That tractor was classic when it had the ICB cab on it!!    Get that thing ready for Corcoran.    I'll stop and say hi.
