This is a joke, right ? You have 'several' but don't know anything ABOUT them ? So YOU didn't build them ?

Wing,
The crank doesn't know if it's in a v-8, v-6, or whatever. If you can't get one from a store, any good machine shop can make you one.

Happy pulling

Some multi-engined tractors run the motors hooked crank to crank. They have a coupler bolted in place of the flywheel that is splined and a coupler that fits in place of the damper pulley that is splined, and they slide together. Kinda hard on the crank that has to take the power of both motors! On the newer built tractors, all the engines are mounted separately and have their own clutch and are bolted to a crossbox, that transmits all the different engines power to the single planetary rearend.


Here's a link for you. Scroll down a little for some pics.

I have the offroad, 4x4, mud racing, hill climbing, truck and tractor pulling, etc. stuff covered.

I have lots of other absolutely worthless information too if you need it! lol

BTW some of the engineering the tractor pulling guys do is amazing. Horsepower levels are insane too.
