    Awesome carnage!...I love tractor pulls!

    I used to go to many tractor pulls in VT years ago..saw "Sassy Massey",that had 4 Mopar hemi's on it, and "The General" that used twin Alison aircraft V-12's,turocharged ,1,710 CID each!..saw some great pulls,and several engines come apart,much like this one pictured here..many tractors had 4 or 5 big blocks on them!..:D

    I witnessed a similar "explosion" on an Allis-Chamlers tractor that had a diesel, the guy ran it on alcohol, with 3 turbo's and a 4 bbl carb!:eek1: --it blew the top half of the engine right off just before the "full pull" 300' mark!..the cylinder head made it across the finish line first,and the tractor coasted across the finish line,and ran over the head!..:p: --it was tits!..:woot:

    One pull I went to had a tractor with an Alison V12 owned by Woddy Woodward from NH,it was called "The Animal"..it had FOUR 1150 CFM Holley carbs on a homebuilt manifold that looked like a huge funnel--he ran two 3/8" fuel lines down two of the carbs ,hooked to an electric fuel pump,for use as an "accelerator pump" so the engine would not "bog" under heavy load!!:eek1: ..

    I watched him pull over a 3 day weekend in VT on memorial day weekend in 1982 (I think!)..he and the others had a lousy weekend--it poured all three days,many tractors blew up or broke down,due to high RPM's in the mud!..

    But Woody won the event --he was the last to pull,and it had stopped raining long enough for the track to dry out some..he pulled the sled the entire 300 feet,the first one to do so in all three days!..he left the thing wide open the whole way,and it took about a good minute or so to cover the 300 feet!..I saw the exhaust manifolds glow cherry red about halfway down the track,then the cylinder head,then the BLOCK turned orange!..you could see the oil in the oil pan,it was a dark black spot,while the rest of the pan was as orange as a pumpkin!...:eek1:

    The entire front of the engine blew apart just after he crossed the full pull mark!..I'll NEVER forget the sound of that motor going about 9K,and watching it turn orange !..I met Woody at another pull a few months later--I said"Man,that was some show you put on at the last pull!"--"I bet that motor was JUNK huh??"...he said "Nope--your LOOKING at it!..I just put a new timing chain and gears,and timing cover on it--the timing chain welded itself to the crank sprocket,and blew the timing case apart,thats all!"..it only has 45 lbs of oil pressure now,it used to have 60!"..:tongue1:

    He then went on to tell me how rugged the Alison aircraft engines were,and how the japs would shoot out the radiators in the planes during WW2,forcing the pilots to climb as high as they could,until the engines would seize,then open the bomb bay doors and dive,to cool them off...they would always re-start,and get them back to the air base again!..I'd love to see an Alison engine in a 4x4!..they look like a 454 on steroids!..:D

    Exhibit A in the "Catastrophic Failure of Internal Combustion Engines" slideshow...


    Dayum. Bet that sounded ugly as f**k.
    I've seen results like that in Top Fuel cars, but I never expected to see that from a diesel. Of course, when you feed said diesel with a turbo approximately half the size of the enginie, al bets are off...

    Haha, I love how the motor keeps throwing parts out the side...and that you can see the entire crank when the camera guy gets up close!
