This Weekend !

The new War Hawk

From Stonington, Illinois, the Money Pit Pulling Team have a new single Allison Tractor for the 5800 lbs. Mod class since this year. The new Tractor called ,,War Hawk´´ is original the old triple Allison UNL Mod called ,,Money Pit´´. The Team sold the Tractor in 2015 to Jared Steckler as a single Allison powered Tractor named Dust Devil 2. The Mod was bought back in April of 2016 and was renamed into ,,War Hawk´´. After that, the Mod got a new paintjob and a new design.
The Tractor has a Engler tube frame, a Rockwell rearend with Franklin planetaries, a SCS Reverser and a driveline from Modern Machine. The fenders of the Tractor were made from aluminium by DeClerk Custom Machine.
The Mod received a set of used Midwest rims with Firestone Puller 2000 HP tyres.
The War Hawk is powered by a Methanol injected Allison V12 V1710 Aircraft engine. The Aircraft engine got a homemade intake system and homemade exhaust pipes, stock cylinder heads with stock valves, a stock crankshaft, Allison stock pistons and rods, a MSD ignition, a homemade oil and fuel tank, a dry sump lubrication and a Hillborn fuel injecton system.
The Hillborn fuel injection was purchased from the Black Gold Pulling Team in the UK.
The Money Pit Pulling Team compete with their new ,,War Hawk´´ in the 5800 lbs. Mod class of the ITPA (Illinois Tractor Pulling Association) and on some other State Level Events in the USA.

The new Green Lightning

From Howells, Nebraska in the USA, the Green Lightning Pulling Team have built a new Alcohol powered John Deere Component Light Super Stock Tractor during the last winter. The Tractor has a Chrome-Moly tube frame with a Chrome-Moly Rollcage (ROP), a Component Truck rearend with Franklin planetaries and a three speed Pro Fab transmission. The hood of the Light Super Stock come from a John Deere 8330. The Light Super has a 4 discs centrifugal clutch with a Rursch flywheel set up. The Team bought for their new John Deere a set of new Keizer Wheels rims with 30.5 Firestone Puller 2000 HP tyres.
The new Green Lightning is powered by an 504 cui. JD engine from GMS (Gene´s Machine Shop) in Hamilton, Ohio.

The Team purchased this Tractor last fall from the late Duane Schroeder. They removed his engine fuel system and put their engine from their old cast rear ended Light Super Stock. They also installed a new mechanical fuel system and a load of other items to make it legal for the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pulling Organization and the NTPA.

2nd place for Bobcat Jr. in the Super Finals of Bowling Green

The Screamin´ Bobcat Team from Ijsselmuiden in the Netherlands have made a 2nd place with their Mini Rod Tractor called ,,Bobcat Jr.´´ in the Super Finals of the National Tractor Pulling Championships in Bowling Green, Ohio, USA. After a 4th place in the first session and a great 1st place in the second session of the Mini Rod class, Berrie Boer was qualified for the Super Finals in Bowling Green on Sunday, together with Steve Boyd (Green Streak), Adam Koester (Walk the Line), Larry Koester (Footloose) and Jason Hathaway (Honkin´ Donkey Red).The biggest surprise was the last year Bowling Green Ring Winner Adam Bauer (Iron Toy & Cowboy Up). The Man from Paton, Iowa couldn´t qualify for the big finals on Sunday with his both Mini Rods.
In the finals on Sunday, Berrie Boer was the last competitor in the Mini Rod division. Berrie made with his Bobcat Jr. a very good start, but short before the leading distance (set by Adam Koester with Walk the Line) the gear jumped out of his reverser and all his chances of the win were gone. But the distance of 336.345 feet were enough for the 2nd place in the end. The Bowling Green Ring Winner 2016 was Adam Koester with his Mini Rod called ,,Walk the Line´´ and a distance of 337.085 feet.

Before I forget it, Helma Boer also has made some nice videos of all 3 Mini Rod Sessions in Bowling Green, check here:
