Dads Modified M-H 44

Dads Modified M-H 44
My grandfather was involved with the very first Banks tractor pull some fifty years ago. Since then it has become the biggest event of the year in our small town. We have a farm just outside of town and it was our one day in the summer that we had off. My father had always taken one or more of our Olivers up to the pull and it was just for fun. In the early 80's a local farmer brought a 1950 Massy Harris 44 to the pull and just dominated. On closer inspection we noticed a GM straight six in place of the M-H engine. They said they locked up the stock motor and had the GM sitting around and it looked about the same size. Went right in they said. My pop drag raced through the sixties and seventies and has always wanted everything to go faster. That little 44 got dads wheels turning. We had my great grandfathers old fifties 44 out in the bone yard with a dead motor and it wasn't long before the tractor was in the shop and the motor out. My mother protested, but the 327 came out of our 56'Chevy Belair and into the tractor with a top loader 4spd out of an old farm truck. Well a tractor with a V-8 blew every bodys doors off and he was invited to many big pulls around our area. Every year there was a new tractor at the pull inspired buy dad's. Soon there were six tractors and they had there own class. Everything from 428 cobrajets to hot 454's. All natuallt asperated (no blowers) running on gas and no frame or sheet metal mods. Just a bunch of stock looking tractors with car engines. Scince the 80's the class hasgotten very competitive and dad built a new small block stroker and still compeats and wins. I jut fond a Massy of my own and plan on running stock class at the local pulls in the area. But once my Olds 455 is together, look out dad!
