I'm glad it went to a good home. It will be with other old tracked vehicles.

Nice find Don. I will take a photo and send it to you as to how the steering cable is threaded. I have never seen a stamping on a pontoon like the right side of your new machine, Although, the Sno-Cat shown in post #11 as posted by DAVENET, has this same design.

Way to go Loggah, not sure if the snow cat bug bit you yesterday or yesteryear....

I am starting to gain a fondness for the old iron aspect of the original snowcat.

I had a blast teasing my father with those model A/T car mobiles......

Here you go Don,

This is looking down on the driver's side. Two parallel cables go aft to a bicycle chain to the steering shaft with teeth on it. The left cable running forward goes out to the left side of the front hoop. The right cable goes around the pulley, behind the radiator to another pulley( not shown in the photo) on the right side of the frame, and then to the right side of the hoop.

Thanks for the photo sno-drifter,one of my pulleys is missing thats the problem.I figured with only 2 pontoons i will have half the problems! Steve, I probably wouldn't have bought it without the history,being used in waterville. I spent a bunch of time in them back in the 60's just didnt think i would ever own one!! Don

Thanks for the offer,I an pretty sure it will stay where its frozen down this winter !!! when i get it home it will give me an reason to build my pole barn i been planing on doing. I got to finish up sawing out lumber at my sawmill !!!! Sno-drifter this is the same machine as Davenet posted in #11 picture,so its the same pontoon.It seems a odd style stamping,the other side is different.One has been replaced at some time.Don

Awesome. I've been keeping an ear to the ground for while trying to find one of those around up there. It's excellent you knew where one was hiding before it disappeared forever.

Davenet,Pretty amazed myself that it still existed!! The people i bought it off gave me a copy of the Boston globe with the big "IKE" poster picture in it. Im not sure if its related ,but in the Pycolog picture it talks about a Mr Deming in Plymouth. When i was a kid 50's-60's there was Deming Chevrolet in Plymouth,the local Chevy dealer.When i bought my first "NEW" Chevy truck in 1973 ,Deming Chevrolet was then owned by the Lenentine family.Don

Now that's just pretty cool Loggah!

Not very often an old machine from way back is mentioned in a thread and is bought by a member and posted up in that very thread!

Must mean it was meant to be..

You definately have the old iron bug, as so many of us here do!

Regards, Kirk

This is probably the lightest piece of "OLD IRON" i own !!!I thought it was an amazing coincidence myself to find the same machine that was in the articles posted. Heres a few of the other old iron pieces. Don

Yep, Just what I thought..... 8-)

I saw that big oliver in another photo and began to wonder about the tucker bug.

that tucker is going to be like the only can of Bud light in My refrigerator.... every one goes to the fridge, opens the door, sees it, pauses in reach, and generally they grab a real beer ( pabst, Schlitz, Old style ect....) then silently think to themselves about the sanity of the host for having that single Crappy can of (light) beer.

I think that machine will fit in quite nice, if (its bigger step siblings leave it alone)

If you need a foster home, Put kaukauna WI on the list. ( we have good beer!)

thinking Tucker changed the ID tags in '52, though, the '53 torpedo has a cut down, factory installed, using only the top portion, and the '54's all have the later style

I have found out a bit more about the eastern tucker dealership,David Greggs office was in Merrimac, and i found out the Tuckers were sent by Rail to Nashua ,and then stored in a warehouse of the White Mountain Freezer Co. The White Mountain Freezer co. manufactured the hand crank ice cream makers that were used in homes before ice cream became available in every store.Don

Well i picked up an interesting picture off E-bay this week. The picture is of an early Tucker on Echo Lake in Franconia Notch in New Hampshire.The picture is an associated press photo that was published in the Boston Herald newspaper Jan.10 1952.I used a jewelers loup and under the address "sno-cat corp. of N.H. there is the word Plymouth with the number 6.This would be the 6th machine sold by this company.The caption is on the back of the photo. Don
