I never said that I was poor. I am not trying to convince someone to let me pull a 600 some inch oliver at the local fair. I'm not taking for granted anyone who lived during the great depression.

Buick, I believe you know who I am. I know who you are. We have both pulled our tractors at the Upper Canada Two Cylinder show, which is loosly called a "stock antique" tractor pull, and I know that both our tractors are not 100% pure stock.

I am not trying to sneak something in that doesn't belong.

I just fail to see the difference between a 150hp 600 inch engine with the correct block and casting numbers, and a 150hp, 600 inch engine with the wrong block or casting numbers. That's all I'm trying to say. IF you will allow one to pull, you should allow the other to pull as well.

I didn't say that it is right to have either in a stock class. Thankfully those kind of hot tractors don't really exist in our pulling circle. However, we could use the example of a 75 or 80 hp tractor, with or without the correct numbers and parts. Why is one allowed and not the other?

By the way, my tractor does have all correct casting numbers, if that matters in this discussion.

Oh sorry, it just clicked now. I should have clued in a long time ago it was you. I missed the Paisley and Dunganon show this year due to family commitments. Blyth was rained out and I wasn't going to trailer a tractor all the way to Grand Valley. Have plans to get out more next year. I heard they got the Paisley track's slick center ridge worked down. Took the kids out a few times with the 110's. Totally stock 8HP K181's and they still placed middle of the class or better against the 20-30HP "stock" tractors. The flag man had to trot or run to keep up with most tractors.A few he never even tried to keep up and just stood at the far end of the track.
