I enjoy going to Harrisburg. Beautiful ride on the way there with all the mountain scenery. Gonna try and make Columbus this year maybe. I'm assuming it will be in Springfield Ohio again but not sure. Theres a few limited pro diesels up there lurking around. Used to come down to Harrisburg for the nationals.

Mike I use to ride my Motorcycle down around Harrisburg its a real nice area. It about 7 hour driver from here not too bad. The nice thing is I run a golf course so in the winter months I collect pay but don't work giving me lots of time to work on projects. Also running golf course gives me access to lots of nice 3 cyl kubota engines being 90% of golf equipment use the kubota setup.

well busted things up again Friday night. Well to start with Friday morning doing some test pulls and I twisted off the drive shaft right in front of the pillow block bearing. I replaced it with some 4140 and had it ready for evening. Anyway 1250 class on clay track did real well until the end of the track and it looks like the input gears stripped. They are the stock ones I put in cause I had received the wrong set from vogel. I will gut it again sunday and see what happened. Anyway got the video of the pull. More $$$$ wife is going to freak. The Kubota ran like a champ on the upside of things..

pulled the diff and found the input gear shaft twisted off at the bolt hole. Going to order a 13 tooth aftermarket pinion and hope it holds up.

Chris the Drive shaft was 1045 and the gear was a 12 tooth from Vogel. After talking on facebook I know what happen. I had less than 3 hours to remove everything and make a driveshaft and then go pull. I left off the support pillow block cause its a nasty place and takes time to shim properly. Live and learn. Anyway got a new 4140 shaft and Vogel is sending me a new 13 tooth gear.

Well had a pretty good day of pulling on Sunday. Nothing broke this time around and its always nice to load your tractor after a pull under its own power. We had 12 pullers come up from NY and they always bring a few nice tractors. I took 3rd place in the 1050 class out of 44 tractors and 2nd place in the 1250 class. I powered out in the 1050 class. It was a small sled but pulled hard enough. It seemed to bite hard at the end of the pull maybe the long chain and angle of it. So this week its time to put my turbo. I have a stock kubota turbo from a 1105T I plan to install before the last pull of the year. Also want to try to up the rpm a tad more. Video of the 1050 pull....

Man thats a lengthy chain! Good hook none the less. There are a few ways to get it to really open up. If your club allows work, you can advance your pump timing, injection pump work, cam work, flowed head, etc etc. But with all that work, comes the heat issue. Also, do you plan on getting a set of pro pulling tires? You'll really notice a big change! I went from a small diameter old style dick cepek big bars i think were 82" then to a set of newer style dick cepek big bars in the 87" and then finally to my current setup with the VM 09 at 83". The difference was night and day. The only bad thing about vogels tires are theyre very heavy, but they can really dig a hole! My dad ground them down to almost a full 1 inch lug.

Mike I have lots of plans for the cub this winter. I was planning to get a set of Vogel pro tires as well as the spline clutch setup. Also the snubber kit from Zach. My pump has already been done so next step is to turn it up and get the turbo on maybe next week. I want more RPM but understand that the stock water pump cant do much more than 4500 it will cavitate. I will have to put a electric water pump and would be nice anyway can cool it down in the pits. I plan to pull the head this winter and get some work done on it. Next pull is in two weeks looking forward to it.

Yes thats correct. Using an electric water pump at the stock 3600 will be more efficient. I believe thats why alot of us crack heads is because were turning alot more rpms and slamming the water through not letting it do its job. Good luck on your pull.

So the turbo transplant was a success. Its a Mitsubishi TD025M and the waist gate is at 10 psi (for now) :-) The fuel pump had to be cranked up a lot. Its not the same beast at all.  Really looking forward to this last pull to see what she can do. I got my feed oil from the oil sensor hole and my return oil I am dumping into my dipstick tube for the time being.

All I can say is hold on tight!!  :D Mine was the same way when I got my turbo put on. I made a flange for the exhaust side so it goes straight up instead of that back piece where your exhaust pipe is. Ive never used that kind of turbo before with an internal waste gate so im not sure if you could seal it shut to gain more boost or not. I have a heavy spring on mine to keep it shut so it doesn't spring open at 30 pounds. Just keep an eye your gauges thats all. With you throwing more fuel and air your going to gain some heat. Best of luck on your voyage

Mike the waist gate is external just not visible from the angle of the pic. Its behind the air filter. I removed the filter and put a pipe out the front above the grill with a velocity tube and I added a spring to to the gate.  :-)
