Valkyrie Engine in a Tractor

...Interesting build, using a Honda Valkyrie engine in a tractor. I also notice that it's gone Darkside!

I think that was a big mistake. Those old Ford tractors are quite collectable and the Valk looked really nice too.

BUt if the project started with a wrecked Valk & a 8N with abad motor then it's quite a nice project. Don't know for sure, just sayin'

I think it is ingenious and looks great, but hope it was as lopeya stated.

I wonder if the gearing was reduced because of the difference in rpms of the 2 engines? If not, probably 1st gear is now like 3rd and so on. A 50 mph tractor. That has to be at least 3 times the hp as well...

That would be fun at antique tractor pulls, if they had an open class.....

Shoot, he could put on some cut 30.5 32s, and take that to the Bowling Green Nationals and run with the 2500 hp big boys.....

Ford and Honda... two things that should not go together.

He did a great job on the conversion. I would love to have that tractor. I saw a Massy Ferguson with a V-12 Jaguar conversion on youtube. That tractor sounded good.
