Dynamometer day

Post by Madders » Sun Sep 27, 2009 9:55 pm

Thanks to Mike Amos of Lynx engineering for bringing the dyno again, he keeps coming to our events even though the majority of exhibitors are big soft nancyboys!!

Special mention to the 2 arch ladyboys 6 pot Phil and Young Mr Firth, come on girls it's dynotherapy or the heads off and up and down with the glazebuster!!! :D :D

The old 1594 of the clubs own stock had a good warm through but delivered a disapointing 74 hp on the shaft, it had Marshy ready with his hand on the pto clutch like Clint Eastwood in a quick draw contest.....

Mike Funnells 1390 put more gas down the breather than out the top and the old 770 shrugged off it's ritualistic beating again with a black exhaust and a nervy owner!!

It's a shame that we destroyed Broadswords 990, he won't be happy when he gets back from Espania and there's a cardboard box of pistons and shells outside his crypt!!!.

True to form I have a 1390 to collect this week ex Lincolnshire, just after the 90 series event...DOH!

Still, at least I'll have a cab over my head for the December roadrun...don't want to get my lovely hair wet do I...
:shock: :shock:

no point mending them and leaving them on the rug by the woodburner, they're tractors and run on diesel and occasionally need some pain to keep em in line, if they pop, thy're not right and need sorting, a good tractor will be better for a spell on the 'rack'!!!! a poorly tractor will be sick and slope off to bed with a lemsip and a good book, plus all the spectators are secretly longing for a blow up!

Sounds like you lad's had a bit of fun playing with the dyno! Over here we dont have to play with the dyno we just hook the drag sled and see what they do! Have never seen a david brown die for power yet ! Now they will spin out but never power out ! I have had 8000 lb of steel hung on the old croppie and god knows what on the sled and she still spins out 950 of Frank's 9000 lb this summer still spun out. Shame some of you boys can't come play! Though I realize some would faint at the sight of a loaded drag I guess these things like dyno's and pulling are for the Bolder devil may care types that belive that the old girls are made to work and should be made fit to do so! The rest can apply polish and admire the shine. We have a few over here that are faint of heart you'll never see a bit of mud or a spot of oil on their nice new paint ! My two cents worth! Doug :twisted: :D

Dear Admin,
Sunday? No - we can do silly all week here in Yorkshire.
I think I must have missed the point with the dyno. I thought these tractors had wheels so they could do their 'hard work' whilst moving. I obvoiusly don't get the same pleasure as some seem to get from watching a tractor not moving. Next they'll be joining the 'Stationery Engine Club' and sitting smoking a pipe wearing a moleskin waistcoat while the thing chugs away.
I've probably started somtheing I shouldn't now.......
