Facebook has become the “place to be” for so many people in this country and abroad. Businesses use it, regular people like you and me use it, even Grandpa uses it. One of the great things we’ve found about Facebook is that it allows a manufacturer of performance parts to show off some of their customers’ creations. We caught this awesome set of photos on Peterson Fluid Systems‘ Facebook page, detailing an insane tri-turbo alcohol-fueled pulling tractor engine hand-built by the gang at Crutchfield Machine in North Carolina.The engine features a set of hand-built cylinder heads and intake manifold, and is constructed based on a diesel design that has been converted to alcohol for this application. Check out the rest of the build gallery on this machine.
While we were checking out those pictures, we also found some spy shots of Peterson’s new “Filter Mount 2.0″. Peterson Fluid Systems manufactures all sorts of fluid system products. They specialize in wet and dry sump oil systems, but make virtually any other product to move fuel and oil from one place to another. Their remote filter mounts are in the process of being redesigned and prepared for manufacturing, and we caught a few photos of these on Facebook as well. The new filter mount is clockable in eight different positions, assuring that you’ll have enough clearance for headers, turbo tubing, and any other offending hardware. It’s constructed of billet aluminum and even has a pressure port for a gauge. Peterson also has a wealth of technical information regarding fluid transfer on their website, so check it out if you’re so inclined.
