I would love to know why some people have to tell everything. I work on fellow pullers tractors,carb kits , installing motors, welding brackets , ect. If someone asks me not to say anything , you dont say ANYTHING. I just love when you dyno your tractor with too many eyes watching and expect everyone to keep there mouth shut just to have a fellow puller come up to you 3 weeks later and know exactly what the dyno said when they weren't even there.When someone asks you to keep your mouth shut...KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT! That's my rant.

Shouldn't dyno your tractor with anyone around unless you are pretty sure what it is going to be.

I'll tell you everything that's in my engines. You can make one just like it or make one better if you want. As for horse power I never could figure out why we were able to pull a gear faster than the 82hp bored/stroked A's with our 40 DC that makes 65 or 70hp. Come to think about it their nose did get a little longer lately!

Thats why it takes me so long to build a tractor, cause I'm the only one I trust to do it and to see it......

Human nature 101. People love being in on a secret. It makes
them feel important. The same goes with sharing a secret. If I
know something you do not then I feel important by sharing it
with you; in the strictest confidence that you won"t tell anyone
else of course Smile. If you want it to stay a secret then keep it to
yourself and maybe one other person. If only one other
person knows and they know you only told them then plausible
deniability no longer exists if the"secret gets out" Other
people gain a great boost in self esteem by pointing out other
people"s errors. I see a few people in here that see to thrive
by doing that. Myself personally the more I learn the less
willing I am to share with everyone. If your a bible reader look
up Matthew 7:6. Anyway just some late night philosophical
thoughts from someone who cannot sleep.

I wish that I could have a few of those tell-alls around when I have my 960 on my dyno to help me find all those extra ponies that it is supposed to have, LOL.

Rule number one when operating a dyno . When they"s
a crowd around dyno runs loosely . when its just you
and dyno run it correctly. Give the ones that are
going to talk something to talk about . just smile
and keep moving through the pits gives them even
more to talk about .remember there is nothing like
free publicity

Back when I got into the sport, it was a big "cloak & daggers" act. Rules were vague, yet restrictive, and if you were percieved as having an advantage, you were a cheater. Guys had tricks and they prided themselves in knowing something you didn't. They also didn't want a tattle tale going to an overzealous track judge. Today, with clearer rules, better technology, and low restriction speed limit classes, it's much more friendly. I don't know too many guys these days that wouldn't tell you what they did and maybe even help you do it. It's more fun being the first guy with a new idea than a guy with a big secret. If winning made big profits, it might be a different story. We all know antique pulling is not a profitable venture!

If you don"t want anyone to know something don"t say nothing, the best way to keep a secret is not to tell anyone, the best way to let something out is to tell someone not to tell anyone. if you are going to be mad at anyone it should be yourself for letting it be known. end of story!
