I was at a pull yesterday got my but kicked but that dosen't matter. I have a super M. Not the best tractor first time that we have pulled it since we got it done this winter. Has cut tires, header on it. So I have to pull the open class which is fine. But I see guys out there running stock tires no header. But there running race fuel which isn't stock. We all know these tractors aren't stock what are they proving by beating everybody and saying there stock tractors. Don't make a difference to me but I was curious what everybody else thinks.

So why don't you put the stock manifold and some uncut tires and run where you belong instead of complaining about getting beat by more souped up tractors?

VERY FEW tractors are stock, that's why you have mph classes and rules. You said you were pulling an open class, thats not stock. I've got a basically stock M with a few "minor" improvements which puts out maybe 65 to 70 hp and I pull against 100+ hp M's all the time. sometime's they beat me, sometime's they don't. it's not alway's about horsepower. You should've spent that money you wasted on the header and put it into the motor.

I miss the days when we could go to the county fair and pull our farm tractors and know they were stock (really stock) and have a good time. Walk and remain friends with our neighbors because we were just there to have a little fun with the tractors we made a living with. Now I am not a farmer any more but I still like to pull my old JD B but most places I can’t even start the sled so I just run in parades. I am planning old getting my old MM U up and going for pulls next year.

I know what you guys are saying, easy to get in between classes, not stock but not heavily modified. I believe in mph classes and stock drawbars ought to be at 16 or at the most 18 inches. STOCK is a very generic term!!

I like to take our stock, or less than stock as it should be noted and out pull modified tractors. it takes knowing your tractor, how to set the air pressure, weights and read a track. most people who complain have to much air and only try to pull once a year. you say this is the first time you pulled all year. we, my dad, brother and I, have attended about 8 pulls so far this year. we pull our old tractors in farmstock and modified, several different weight classes. win some, loose some.

Hey I don't understand eiter? I didn't say that was all that was done to it. But that is the point I could put stock tires on it and manifold and pull in the stock class. But that isn't fair to the guys that are truely stock now is it. I didn't go out and by a header just for the fun of it.

Are these 100+hp M's pulling in the stock class or speed classes.

Granted, backing up to the dyno could prove me wrong, but I would bet $$ that you did infact buy the header for the fun of it. I would be very surprised if you gained anything from it. You may have even lost power.

I understand what you are saying about modified in the stock class, etc, etc. But what you have to remember is that it is a lot easier for the tech man to see a header on the outside of an engine than what is on the inside. Its easy to police the obvious stuff.

A- class 3 mph, B- class 6 mph. A class is considered stock. A couple of them run in A class. I understand what your saying, but the only rule is correct block and head for whatever tractor your running. So I know that going in and I can live with that. Like I said before its not just horsepower that makes a tractor pull.

yes, those days long ago when all those stock M's with truly stock m&w kits with only 3/4 inch stroke and 3/4 inch domes those were the days , when you could get them at a farmall dealer instead off hunting on the Internet for them.

Make the stock class pull with an 8 ft or longer chain. That will equalize every one back to where their tractor will only pull 70% or less of tractor weight.
