The add says they are made by Canadair so that would be a good place to start.

Another engine it could possibly use is a continental industrial, as they are a 6 cyl air cooled. Just guessing though.

you are right or could be a mil spec motor like the huculees motors on the older generators just knock off aircraft engines.

deviant what is your plans for a weasel they wern't much as a snow cat and also were prone to throwing tracks to make them amphibous agan most will need a whole new tubb built as the bottoms are usualy rusted between the spring mounts. there were a few cool track conversions like the nodwell track whch work good for hunting riggs. the little studibaker 6 motors ran smooth and cheep no problem with running all day on a tank of gas.if you want a snow vehicle look into a snow trac,bombadiar br100 or bombi also a thiokol imp if you are using it more like a hunting atv than look into a j-5 a narrow track bombi or the larger muskeg those last 3 are built like a brick out house.
If you are a mvpa type guy want a project to restore let me know the country side is littered with weasels around here that were abandond when tehy broke i'm betting i could find you one .

I did not know that about Weasels... thank you. What I really want is a aktiv st4 snow-trac.They look to be easy to operate and maintain. It will only be used as a people carrier for my cabin in Boise National Forrest and for fun of course. So no drag, no "alpine deep" snow (pretty deep nevertheless). These guys had one that was very nice for $6500 but I was too slow, sold before I could get out there.

I have seen the one listed here out of Oregon, I am new to this but seems a little high. I live in Utah and the place I want to use the cat is ID so it would have to be semi close to those if you guys know of any....By far the ST4 is my fav.
