Hi, TUFFY's first pull is on the 19th of May, so I will get to finally see if I did good so the original Tuffy will be proud or if I have more work to do.

When we tested the engine a while back it was down on horse power some to the better tractors I will be pulling against, but I have done some more work to the engine since then to hopefully get me closer to the others for power.

Hi, TUFFY ran real good for the first time out. I got 6th place in the afternoon show, I messed up some because I ran in the wrong gear so I would have done better.

In the night show I had TUFFY in the right gear and took 5th, I got knocked out of 4th place by only 1 foot.

I have some video but when I put it on photobucket and then post the link on here or email it to someone they never play back. I don't know what I am doing wrong, I don't have any problems with pictures through photobucket.

Hi, we took the motor home to the pull because we had one show in the afternoon and one at night. I have a big picture of Tuffy in the motor home and he spent so much time in there I feel like he was there with us on Saturday.

Hi, Just a little update, I got 3rd place in the light class and a 5th place in the heavy class this last Sunday so I was very happy with that. I am getting TUFFY figured out better the more I pull him. I have someone that has pulled these things for at least 25 years now helping me out so that has speed-ed up my learning curve allot.

The best part is I got the 3rd and 5th in my old home town where I lived most of my life before I got married and a bunch of relation from Yvonne's side were there watch so they were happy for me also.

What a sweet tribute to your little tabby boy -- he must be very proud! Is the portrait of him on the tractor done in paint?

And congratulations on your wins!

Hi, They are decals designed by gizmocat who is or was a member on this site. I am very great full to gizmocat for taking the time and trouble to do the decals for me. The decals originally had a green background but to make the one fit on the left side I had to cut Tuffy's picture out of most of the background. I think they still look great on there though. I have 2 more decals in case something would happen and I would have to replace one of them.

A new pic of TUFFY. A couple weeks after the pull after I did so good I busted the rear end gears, twisted both rear axles, and twisted a shaft in the transmission, so all the fun I had at my old home town I payed for at the next pull. This picture is at the pull I busted up the rear end, I knew it was wounded on this run but it held together, at the night show I didn't go 10 ft and the gears let go.

I am going to a pull with a different club on Sept 29 and 30, I got the rear end and trans fixed up enough for one more time, then this winter I am going to take rear end all apart to fix things right.
