New Light Mod Tractor in the Netherlands

The Ijsseldelta PoweRR Pulling Team from Ijsselmuiden in the Netherlands have built a new 2.5t / 5500lbs. Light Modified Tractor during the 2017 season. The Team is new in the Pulling Sport, but the name is old. In the 80s and the early 90s was a Tractor under the almost same name with a RR Griffon power plant on the track in the Netherlands. The name of the Mod was ,,Delta Power". The new vehicle has a steel tube frame with a steel rollcage, a hydraulic steering, aluminium fenders and a Rockwell rearend. The Dutch Team bought the Chassis from Henk Pastoor last year. In the package were also included the Firestone All Traction 8Ply Puller tyres with the Midwest aluminium rims and the gearbox. The chassis is the old Voldsom Volvo of Soren Jakobsen from Skjern in Denmark. The Tractor came to the Netherlands in 2015. Henk Pastoor sell the complete RR Griffon storage and the old Voldsom Volvo Tractor of Soren Jakobsen in Denmark. A year later he sold the Tractor without the engine further to the Ijsseldelta PoweRR Team. The rearend has a Rockwell center section with a aluminium differential of the Green Monster Pulling Team from Germany, a Rockwell ring and pinion gear, Franklin planetary carrier housing and Franklin planetaries. The Light Mod also has SCS gearbox with a homemade driveline, a Browell clutch bell housing and a 11´´ inch centrifugal clutch with 5 discs.
The new Ijsseldelta PoweRR is powered by a Rolls Royce Griffon MK57 V12 engine on Avgas.
The engine has a original block with stock sleeves, a stock crankshaft with orginal rods and pistons, better rod bolts, orginal RR Griffon cylinder heads with stock camshafts, a original supercharger with a special built aluminium air intake funnel from the Judge Pulling Team, a homemade intake manifold, homemade steel exhaust pipes, a original ignition, a stock fuel system with a electronic fuel pump and homemade fuel tanks. The Griffon engine was built together with the Judge Pulling Team from Kampen in the Netherlands. The Judge guys helped them also with the right settings for the engine.
Ijsseldelta PoweRR Pulling Team will compete in Dutch Grand National Championship in 2018.
