Yeah, we have 3 maybe 4 tractors we can pull . I know we are taking at least 3 of them . The 2 Fords ( its a NewHolland dealership ;). ) and a cub. Not sure if we are taking the 12 HP cub or not? That one needs an adult to drive it because the clutch is so hard.

Oh and we have a surprise for the super stock class :) as this class must have an 18 HP or less TWIN cylinder engine. So now we have an LGT 100-18 :) thanks to my engine mounts and bits from my pre- diesel days . Took us 20 minutes last night to swap out the the k 241 for an 18 HP Briggs twin. Easy Peasy!

Wow we wow wow! That was a schooling! Learned a TON! Transfer sled pulling is WAY DIFFERENT! than slab or stone boat pulling! We found out fast when the hydro in stock went about 20' and spun out. So we got a wild card run and we changed all the weight on the rear and walla! A full pull. And went to a fifth place finish out of 30 tractors! And that was with the hydro.The governoron this tractor is killing us! It won't let the engine rev over 3400 no matter wat we do and it kills a good run??? This will need to addressed!!
Now the 100/18 pulled in super stock like a champ! And we got lucky the first pull and ran a full pull just as he ran out of traction and engine. A little tweek to the governor and we were turning! Oh yeah! I thought it was over 4 k and it was but it was what we needed and the next run went out the end like the big boys.
Last round 10 rigs left and he got out good but got sucked over to the soft side and buried it. 84' out . Good for 7th not bad out 20 tractors I think for the first try at a transfer sled. I'll put up a few pics and vids tomorrow .
All and all a great day! .
