The boy's came home today all excited and told me I had to go look at this tractor, and                             001.JPG                                                                                                                   002.JPG                                                                                                                   003.JPG                                                                                                                    I don't know anything about this tractor ,but the boy's think it's cool. it did come with a spare motor and was said  to be built pretty good. We did get it to fire up but it didn't want to stay running so a good carb cleaning, and a new plug is in order first thing tomorrow. Any info on the class that it pulled in would be helpful. Guess we might give this pulling thing a try, where do we start

First, PUT a Real engine in the darn thing. What is that, 8hp maybe? What's with that Pulley?? Bet it goes FAST, but can't pull then. AND, get that shamefull number off the sides!  That long, could put TWO engines in it! Or a little four banger from small car...NAH!

I'm guessing its a 8 horse tecumseh, it came with 2 motors, both were on the frame when we bought it, What class would this be pulled in?  I'm guessing it won't be the stock class because of the frame mod's, I think it's pretty cool tho, somebody has put alot of time into this little puller. I was hoping to get some info to get started pulling this little thing, It's funny we were talking about putting a grader blade on it last night.

Check your local club rules. A lot of Clubs don't like chassis mods. The pulley on the engine is a little to big to do some pulling .Looks like some one made it to go fast.. None of the clubs let me put my  wheel horse because of it was 4 inches longer. That's not me on it that mr White pants.

Its defiantly not NQS legal that's for sure. And with it being that long the only class it might come close to would be the sportsman class which usually run the street bike engines but that would be about it.
