The sled is equipped to accommodate one if you have it. We don't have a rule requiring one though.

I like to use the "intent of the rule" approach to questions like this. While there is nothing specific in the rules that says you cannot run a longer/taller block in the open class, there is a factory HP limit for the light open classes 3500 and 3750. So, since an 88 sized tractor/block is not allowed to pull 3500 and 3750, I would apply the same logic to your situation. You cannot pull a 77 with an 88 sized block in 3500 or 3750 open.

Its OPEN. What good is the word "open' if thats not what it means? I am always bewildered by this situation whenever a club does this. Then they cry that turnout is falling?
Please explain. To most people open means run what ya brung. Limiting hp directly limits competition & attendance. We have a local club that limits horsepower to 33% over factory in open, & RPM to 10% over. This is NOT 'open' in any other motor sport! Oh but then they have a v-8 antique tractor class.....(?!?)

Jon and the crew at Sigourney run a good pull with a decent set of rules and very little problems so don't try to stick your finger in their eye if that's what you are trying to do. Let their rules be what they are. 75 tractors in the 5500 national? I don't think they have a problem with turnout!
