How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 27, 2017 09:50AM
Curious on how much power people have made with a 7000?
We have a class that is 410 max cubes, 2.25 turbo. No RPM limit. stock appearing pumps. Would it compete against a 4020 or a 856? Thanks!

Done right....856 and 4020 will be a gear behind you

7000 only has a 256ci 4 cly. engine...tall order to compete against the 6 cly. tractors? the right shop can get a lot of fuel out of those sims pumps. are you allowed to slip in a 401.? would bolt right up to the bell housing.

The class is currently limited to having rotary pumps (no inline pumps allowed). To get more color/manufacturers into the class, the class members are currently considering allowing 4 cylinder Fords with the Simms inline pump, but not 6 cylinders. The 6.6 liter 401cu would not be allowed as it has an inline pump and the larger cubes.

I don’t have any HP numbers but if you search Stick Boy Pulling Team on Facebook, or on YouTube, you’ll find a lot of videos of a 4cyl Ford. You’ll have to scroll a bit on Facebook back when it had 5000 sheet metal on it. That’s a good example of a single 3x3 charger at 304 cubes with a Bosch P-pump. Although it ran really good, it was competitive with the 4020s, but not really “ahead” of them. The class you’re referring to only allowing a sims pump and 2.25 charger may be a good start but from my experience with the little 5000 it likely won’t be enough.

What is the weight of class? And if its 410 cube why not build a 8000 series. The right person could bore and stroke a 304 and get close to that cube limit and you would be hard to handle with a wimer built pump.

Class pulls at 9500lbs. Basic rules are 410 cubic inch maximum. 2.25 inch max inlet T04 turbo. Wheelie bars and wide front. Transmission and rear end must match brand & engine. No inline pumps! (As I stated before the class members are considering allowing 4 cylinder Fords, and only 4 cylinder models, with the Sims inline pump to allow more manufacturers into the class).

some 7810 and 7840 fords had the 401 with a cav rotary .. just have scheid or FVP build you a cav pump with a 450 roosa master head

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 29, 2017 03:58AM
If the rules state rotary only i think i would opt. For a model 100 off an IH.

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 29, 2017 02:36PM
Why no in line pumps most of the fords came with a inline pump. does someone just want a rotary pump class.

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 29, 2017 06:46PM
Yes, the class is meant to be a cheaper alternative to the local "Hot Farm" classes. Staying away from inline pumps keeps the horsepower, and thus cost, down.

I’m guessing that you already have a Ford 7000 that you’re looking to build for this class; but just in case you don’t, and you want to add color and be sure to compete, check out a late model New Holland with the 6.7L Iveco engine, which already has a rotary pump, at 411 cubes (assuming this would be allowed as most places give 1%). Not many of them out there pulling but seems like a better option than what you’re looking at today. Being a Blue guy myself, i understand the frustration with green and red saying “yeah we’ll let you in, but with these other rules too, and two less cylinders”.

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 30, 2017 09:10AM
Whatcha need is to get ahold of is an Oliver Waukesha either a 283 or a 310 turbo charge it put some big injectors in and a big rotary pump they are awesome! when built like that they are damn near unstopable!

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 30, 2017 12:38PM
agree? we want more colour but if it aint green or red? you cant run more then a 4 cly? good luck with that?

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 30, 2017 04:20PM
I'm with jim,ya wont be remotely close to a 4020,if your limited to only a 4cyl

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? December 01, 2017 02:34AM
I didnt mean to start a big fued here, I guess we were misunderstood... We did not mean that only 4 cylinder Ford's could run with us. We were just suggesting that to give the guys that wanted to run Fords more options this was a possible idea to allow more models an opportunity to pull. The 6 cylinder models could still run with us if they had a rotary pump.

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 30, 2017 01:36PM
Are electronic rotary pumps permitted?

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 29, 2017 10:31AM
Are the he and ih allowed to put turbo on if so good luck ford boys

Re: How much power can a Ford 7000 make? November 29, 2017 11:42AM
If your weight is 9500.... use a 8000. Or a 5000 with a 401 using 7810 sheet metal. But the Genesis head on top...wimer pump and she will come to life. You will be ahead of those 4020's and 856's.
