The new Red Force

After 2 years of hard work, the new IH 1246 3.5t Sport class Tractor called ,,Red Force´´ from Bad Bentheim in Germany is ready. The Tractor received a homemade wedge frame with a homemade steel Rollcage, a IH 1246 sheet metal hood and fenders out of a US IH 1066 Tractor.
The rearend and the gearbox come out of a IH 1046 and got a other transmission, better shafts and some better gears. The new 12´´ inch centrifugal clutch with 4 discs was built by Aadri van der Veeken (owner and driver of the New Holland Pro Stock Tractor called ,,Wickie Power´´) from the Netherlands. The IH Tractor got a set of lightweight rims with cut Michelin 650/65 R38 tyres. The tyres were cut by Hans Heesakkers in the Netherlands.
The new Red Force is powered by an IH 1246 6 cylinder engine with 5.9l capacity on diesel fuel.
The power plant have a IH 1246 stock block with an revised IH 1246 cylinderhead, stock sleeves, a  revised stock crankshaft with original steel rods and pistons, a homemade intake and exhaust manifold, a Holset HX 55 turbocharger, a homemade aluminum Intercooler with parts from Freakshow Performance and a Bosch P 3000 Diesel fuel injection pump.
Last but not least, the IH got a new paintjob and a new look.
The Red Force Pulling Team will compete in the German Championship this year.
