Czeck it is, and stout!! Kinda goes with the Ural:-) We use the same rear boom...
The local Deere dealer started handling the Zetor, and we actually hooked two 50hp 4wd tractors and pulled the Deere around like a yard dog. Of course the Zetor is 1k heavier.

Perhaps I missed the story, but how did you end up with that big hole in the engine?

Haven't done an autopsy yet but #1 cylinder grenaded and the rod broke taking out both sides of the block and the oil pan while loping along in 5th gear @ 60-65 (was in Quick128's jurisdiction-so keeping speed down) and it let go with no warning. Unfortunately it was 3:40am and 30 miles from anything that was open. It was 17 degree's that night-sucked loosing heat. I had the empty car trailer behind me so I called Cabell the intrepid who; answered his phone @4am, rolled out of bed, jumped in his p38, and came to the rescue from 60 miles away. Pulling my heavy a$$ed 130 on a 20 foot trailer behind a short p38 with 275k on the odo through the Blue Ridge mountains was another adventure.

Not that any time is good for it, but that's really not a good time to break down, 17 degrees in the middle of the night. Good thing you had an empty trailer with you.

Actually, that's a pretty good idea... Cruising around with a car hauler trailer is about as good as AAA, just call a buddy and you're on your way. It's like urban self recovery 101.

Glad you made it home safely.

I love it. Except you should really keep a spare truck on the trailer, that way you don't even have to inconvenience anyone when you break. Just swap vehicles and be on your way. LOL

Been there done that. When the r380 let go. Backed the 110 on the trailer off. Ran home installed a nas spec bumper with class 3 hitch and came back and picked the whole thing up.

Trevor it let go right @ the Albemarle/ Nelson border @ the bottom of that grade. I ended up in the crossover where you guys set speed traps to catch the folks with too much downhill momentum.

I was gonna say, there was a pretty sweet deere with a FEL at Cabell's when I was down, why not use that? The 3 pt gin pole would do the trick just fine.

Sucks to hear about the engine block ventilation holes...

It was a "Land Rover Engine Exchange" engine. This is a Sollihull rebuild program per the plaque riveted to the block. It was represented as having 70k on it when I got the truck so around 100k now-time for its second timing belt.

In Yorkshire you can't put 70k on something before it gets stolen. This was 2nd engine-bought truck from dealership that installed it. When I bought the truck, I tried to pay him to change the timing belt and he refused to take my money on the basis that they had replaced it 19k ago. Truck is on engine #3.
