This tractor was heading to the salvage yard to be scraped out
when I rescued it to turn it into a Light Limited Prostock puller!!
-Description of the Build and if possible, pictures of the build process:
It started out as a farm tractor with a cab that had a cracked block. I stripped it of all it parts and put custom pulling parts back in it to make the puller that pulls in the Light Limited Prostock 466 class. I did all the work myself including engine building and painting. It has a 7-speed atlas transmission with solid bottom shaft and bearing support. Atlas 3-disc pedal slipper clutch. Engine has a roller high lift cam, adjustable cam gear, ported and flowed head, ceramic coated pistons, Harts P-pump and Harts double feed billet injectors, 3x3 turbo, aluminum front timing cover, Max Simpson water injection. Pro Puller 24.5x32 tires on Keizer aluminum rims.
