I spent the last 4 days trying to get this thing to run.I never worked on a snowmobile before and thought I would give it a try.My buddy's room mate had this sitting in a field for 8 years and gave it to me, it was in bad shape,engine sized,exhaust rotted off,2 or 3 family's of mice,1 garbage bag of pine needles, he said the last time it ran was in 2001 and was told that it was shot and to part it out.Well after 4 days $55.00 in parts including the exhaust and a lot of blisters(pull start) it purrs like a kitten:bounce:cant wait for the snow.

Good. Thanks.:D

I've got way too much stuff I want to get done outside before that snow arrives.
And now it's raining AGAIN.

How's the track on that 340? I might know of a cheap one if that one blows apart.

Like new, he must have put a new one on before it was parked,I still can't believe i got it to run after all this time.I actually made money on this because my budd'y bet me $50.00 and a case of beer if I got it to run.

Ahhhh... The smell of 2 stroke smoke in the morning! That sound brings back memories. It looks in pretty good condition. Well done!
