Updating the puller

Recommended Posts

This past week I finally got around to getting the new twin together. 45 cube Kohler Command with recast heads, big valves, roller cam, home built intake. RPM's should be in the mid 11,000's. Here are some pics. Hopefully the weather improves tomorrow so I can break it in! Had to cut a few holes in one of my spare hoods to get it to fit. Ran out of time to get it painted.

Oh and a video of it idling, audio doesn't do it justice.

Yeah, same hood.

Duane, I will still run the old engine. It meets the rules for Mid Penn. this one here will run in the Open Super Stock classes. Doubt I will make Kentucky, wanted to take the Pro/Super but schedule at work is going to keep me home.

With this style setup you usually see 100-125 HP. It should be somewhere in that range, if we got it right.

Friday night I took it to Virginia to run at a County Fair pull. There was 13 tractors in the Open Super Stock class. I was the test hook so I brought it out easy the first time, only turned it 9500 rpm. Made a nice straight run and the motor sounded good. Only thing I noticed was the O2 reading was kinda rich. So I dropped the test hook and told them I'd come back last. On the test hook I pulled 212 feet. Leaned the carb out and waited for my turn. This time I brought it out harder, was turning over 10,000. Tach only goes to 10, need to get a different tach lol. Was making a nice straight run till I was about 10 feet from leader cone and the engine skipped twice. Glanced down at the O2 gauge at it was pegged on the lean side. Just that quick it popped and shut off. Then I realized...I never turned the fuel pump on! It was all good tho, I had so much ground speed that when it shut off I drifted two feet past the leader cone. I'm pretty happy with that. First time out and it gets a first! Especially since I was going to the pull just to get a few test hooks and get the bugs worked out. Wasn't expecting to win it. I have another pull today, have to see how it goes today.

LOL, I have a hard time getting back to the shed on fumes.  He finishes the pull and comes in first after he runs out of gas.
