    I would have done that, but the address is too long for the space provided. I believe it was only one engine.

    Not sure myself, but it kind of looks like it lost its blower with a turbo super charger and possibly the heads with it. Whats left in the tractor looks like a motor block with a tranny behind. The motor sounded odd as well!!! Almost like a jet motor with a odd pitch sound to it. I remember those tractors years ago where they just kept adding motors to them. In the 90's or around there. Used to watch them on espn 2, they finally stopped adding motors at 5 fully blown V-8 motors. No room left. I didn't even know they still had tractor pulls anymore. Break-em all. Jeff

    That's 1 engine. That's what happens when you hydraulic a cylinder, it fills with fuel, and lifts the block off just above the crankshaft.

    IHC 466 blocks are fairly easy to blow apart.

    A LOT of CASH laying there.

    About the same thing happens if a stuck valve occurs in a supercharged engine.

    221, Since you know so much more than I do about these motors, could you explain what a hydraulic cyclinder motor is??? Type of fuel and other info. That motor appears to be a strait 6 and they are useing it at trator pulls??? Also a 6 cyl. at 466 block!!! Interesting. Break-em all. Jeff

    I'll try

    IHC DT466 Block

    600-650 cu in

    SOHC

    Hilborn style fuel injection

    Methanol fuel

    3 Turbochargers in 2 stages

    A wagon load of cash....playing with these things can embarrass a man financially REAL FAST.

    What usually happens when you hydraulic a cylinder, there will be a valve train failure.....a lot of times an exhaust rocker arm will fail causing the exhaust valve to not open.......the fuel flows into the cylinder but cannot get out through the exhaust and when it starts to fill up the piston hammers the block apart.......like you saw in the video.

    It's actually a common occurrence with that game.

    In the US those engines are required to be tethered.....with safety cables.

    Thank you 221. I thought you said it very well. Its very exciting to see the engine blow up like that though. Abit to dangerous for the spectators for insurance reasons I guess, but fun to watch. Break-em all. Jeff

    Hydraulic a cylinder = all fluid in cylinder with no air, Piston is trying to come back to the top and blows the head off. ok? Happens at the drag strip on a fairly regular basis.
