point being that yours might be more than 20 hp over someone elses,so still not apples to apples,competition is not standard one fits all,enhanced is hard to beat,most that pull ARE ENHANCED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PERIOD,not many stock pullers anywhere.Many many dealers installed kits,which back in the day were considered stock. you didn't mention if any tractors were kicked out. Any rule made has some people figuring out how to beat that said rule,speed limits mean very little,tech means very little honesty and pride nowdays is hard to find also.Accepting that life is what it is is more important than most other stuff in life,includeing thinking thar stock is stock,we are not at Bowling Green in the CONCOURSE CLASS.

I repeat......!st and 2nd place were held under careful watch.....!st hooked up to dyno and checked and WON if not over10% over factory rating. Do you really expect 65 year old tractors to never have been overhauled ???? GIVE ME A BREAK !!!!!

My SM was overhauled in 1992.....and I use Summer when baling hay. It is a working tractor and NOT a garage queen puller.

535353M.......Ya you're right ! My bad ! Never in 30 yrs of pulling have I heard all tractors in a class should all have the same HP. But I guess anyone is allowed their own facts and truth in todays world.

I'm Sorry I tried to challenge your version of facts and truth..

you are not able to absorb facts,even if tractors in a class were stock,hp would be different,one turn on fuel screw,worn rings,loose pistons,amount shaved on head to bring up to spec when over hauled,you admit to an overhaul John,so most likely you have more power than the other guy,compete,beat the bigger power,then feel good,but stop expecting to find many "STOCK" pullers.It's not an opinion on facts,it is willingness to accept.And pretend farmer,- speed limits means just that,speed,not winning ability,80 - 90 % of the time bigger power will still win slow pulls.Is a hotter coil considered stock? To many it is. Is drilling out the main jet stock,removing cast wheels,turning up governer,changing out oil bath air cleaner? would it not be the most fun to be in a dynoed class and win over the higher powered tractors,that is my goal,power is easy to obtain,hooking it to the track is an art form.A lot of guys and gals want a level,even playing field,beati'n up on the Church Ladiez,go find some competition that is fun to beat,not equals.My tractors have acid rain paint for the most part,many I compete with have more in the paint job and weight brackets that I have in the whole thing.Every hog finds an acorn once in awhile.If ya can't run with the big dogs,- stay on the porch!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now go have fun doin what ever level you choose,but go have fun.

When speed limited to say 3.5 mph it's not the horsepower that wins it is all about traction. My 70 in 7500 lb. class always ends the run with front wheels in the air and engine slightly above idling.
