Great people - they dragged a big crane out of a field for me once a few years ago. They turned up with an old Fordson winch tractor and a 6x6 American army recovery truck - proper toys! I didn’t get any pics unfortunately as was having a particularly bad day...

Yep perky V8, 540 it came as standard in a Massey Ferguson 1155. The limit is 9 litre for the 4.5T super sport class. The 540 is circa 8.9 litre. It came with a Allison transmission but not sure if I can use it yet. Also has a 4x4 transfer box that I will need to remove.

Is it true or bollox that Major back ends are ridiculously strong, and therefore used for tractor pulling?
