After coming off of a really big high from winning the pull the night before in Goshen, Indiana, the team was humbled very quickly from the results in Evansville, Indiana Pro Pulling League event.
We headed to the track and it appeared to be a typical good track at Evansville! We had once again high intentions on performing very well!!!
As we powered up and began to build boost, we started easing out the clutch and we were under way at full throttle! The tires we’re hooked up, the front end just started to lift, and BOOM! Everything came to a sudden stop. The motor leaned out and detonated and blew boost out the intake so hard it blew the front filters off and the headlight bezel on the front of the hood!
So back to the shop we go after our 10th place finish.
After finding a fuel line blockage, we began the repairs. Burnt piston, burnt rings and cylinder sleeve, broken rocker arm, broken rocker arm shaft and two bad valves were the total of the damages.
We worked very quickly in order to get everything back together in tip top shape in order to head out for the Thursday’s NTPA pull in Monroe, Michigan!
Fully Loaded takes the win for the second year in a row at Goshen, Indiana Pro Pulling League Event!
July 27, 2017 the Fully Loaded Team travelled to the Elkhart County 4H Fair in Goshen, Indiana.
Last year, the team took first place after being test hook and then having a sled reset. We dropped to last place and came down the track and won the event in 2016!
This year was a little different. We were the third tractor to pull. After a fresh rebuild from some excessive heat issues in the cylinders from our last event at Henry Illinois, the team made some adjustments to the motor and fuel system. Concerned we may have gone too conservative, we started our run down the track at Goshen.
We were lucky and successful enough to take first place again! Another podium finish for the Fully Loaded Team!
With another podium finish we interviewed with Leslie Mears, and the Lucas Oil Production crew as this event was recorded and will be aired at a later date on MavTV as well as other networks.
Always great time interviewing with Leslie..you just never know what will be said on and off the camera!!!
The team left Goshen, Indiana that evening for the Friday night Pro Pulling Event in Evansville, Indiana in search for another win! Stayed tuned for more and see how the team ended up at Friday night’s show!
