I started down the puller path several years ago. 

I had a good friend that was in the winners circle a lot. Of course I consulted with him about the hobby.

He told me it was all up to what you want. Somewhat confused my reply was what do you mean?

He said it is a lot of fun and a good time if just like pulling and building a machine. Costly tho.

And then he said now if you want to win, that is a complete different thing. More confusion.

He said well let me put it to you like this, winners are the the best cheaters having the most money. 

How about you? You can do the math. (he was a die hard cub guy) 

After running down the time and cost of the whole thing I just dropped it from my bucket list.

Just to follow :popcorn:... When I broached this idea it was just to be a POS that we already had and just for fun as a few of the pulling events we have. 

Well Dan in his analness has just gotta kick it up a notch and go whole hog and build something. 

Well I for one will not stand in the way of his creativity but Dan? 

You ain't gonna paint this frigging thing are you? 

There goes your 500 budget right out the window! 

NO I says ... no paint...  a rat puller...he knows how like orginal.

Bastage already knows my distain... ( always wanted to use that word) for drilling holes in ancient sheet metal.

What with a kill switch on the fuel pump, the ignition, the hitch and up yer bung hole?

No paint this year. It will have to earn a paint job. If it places in the top three more than 3 times this summer then it might get a new dress. :D

Does that mean she'll get a 241, or do we change the decals and stuff in a big Onan ?

Dan, :angry-tappingfoot: once you get started you know the wallet will get stretched as the rules and all of those loopholes make the rulebook very elastic.

I'm along for the ride.      :popcorn:

That should add a pretty fair bit of squeeze.

 

I'll be looking forward to seeing what you do with the engine.
