Hot Rod Tractor Built Out Of A WD9 IH Tractor
I built this hot rod tractor out of a WD9 IH tractor with a bad engine. I installed a 350 cu. in. turbocharged GM engine. A local machine shop custom-built the headers. I put 23.1 by 34 tires on and got a professional paint job. I plan to add wheely bars and a chrome roll bar.
I drive it in parades crowds love it but it could be used for tractor pulling. I've had it up to 42 mph. I think it'll run 60 mph but haven't wanted to risk it on the rough roads around here.
I'm thinking of selling this tractor and building another one. My plan is to power an Allis WD-9 with two 425 Caddy engines. (Larry Sommerfeld Box 1781, Moosejaw, Sask. S6H 7K8 Canada ph 306 693-2352)
