Is it true or bollox that Major back ends are ridiculously strong, and therefore used for tractor pulling?
Yes very strong, and in top gear it’s a direct drive so doesn’t even use the gears..........I think 🤔 :D:D

What tractor are you going to use?
Not using a tractor as such, it's a component tractor as in if you use the engine the tractor originally came with and build it to look as close to the original tractor as possible then you can use any transmission and drive axle you want. I'm aiming to look like an 1155 MF

A Major back end is good for 1000hp, allegedly......

@Quattromike , what Allison gearbox have you got on there?
I heard it was a major back end is good for 400hp un modified, and 1000 hp with a good bit of modifications.
I'm not 100% sure what the Allison box is yet, there is numbers on it I'll need to do a bit of homework to see what I got.

A few tugs came in yesterday but not had a look at them
You found me a nice drive axle for me project mr @Mogman ? I’ve been looking about but still not sure what I should be looking for,
Ones I’ve seen have bolted on diff and bolted on trumpets with a fabricated center to get the width right I suspect. Plus I think the is something in the rule book about no welding of cast iron parts.
There is a few websites but all seem to be from the states.
