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.
