Sure is also early Mustangs, P 40's and more. The RR Meteor is a British tank engine! Think it will pull??:lol:

The Meteor is a Merlin-based tank engine with an 800 HP rating, no blower.Look how much bigger the Allison is for 60 more cubes and less HP!

The owner of the Allis with the allison engine told me the engine when flying uses 175 gallon an hour and the crankshaft and camshaft can go in either way when installing. the rolls royce was an aircraft engine and it had 650 hp thus the emblem on the side. i believe he told me both engines do not have an oil pan like most engines. the modified tractors are in northern Illinois. the other ones are some Texas tractors mostly 1456's    Jim

I saw an Allison powered D21 at Half Century of Progress in 2015. They fired it up and that was really impressive sounding. Could have been that machine I suppose. I think Sheri from Heritage Iron had something to do with it??
