Lightbulb For Sale: 1968 Snow Trac Trac Master SN: 1030

I am posting this TracMaster for a neighbor of mine. He bought it locally around 5 years ago played with it a bit and hasn't used it much for three years. It has been "rhino-lined" but IMO it is not the best job. The tires have been foam filled and it has dual batteries. He started up and drove it on the trailer after three years of no use. Otherwise, it is fairly complete. There is a broken part on the steering that he will have welded unless the purchaser would prefer to do the repair themselves.

In addition to this TracMaster the purchaser is going to get a fairly complete spare parts machine that is only missing the tracs. The spare machine may run but it has not been started since purchased and has been sitting in storage for at least five years. I do not have pictures of the spare machine. It is still buried in a remote barn and needs to be extricated. There may also be a trail grooming drag for it - if he can find it.

The seller would like to get $10,000 USD cash for this machine and the spare. The buyer will need to pick up both machines (South East Clark County, Washington area). The seller is not interested in parting out the machines or selling them seperately. He is looking for an easy cash sale so he can purchase a newer Snow-Cat.

Please post questions here. Only PM me if you are truly a committed buyer. If you are willing to pay more than $10000 then please PM me with your higher bid. If I can't find a legitimate buyer here then we will probably list it on eBay.

Just a reminder to interested buyers:

For the record, I'm not making any money off this. I'm not going to knock myself out making calls or crawling around the machine.

The seller wants to get rid of this but I don't think he will go to great extremes or want to do any sort of complicated deals.

I'm just posting this here because I know there would be interested people here.

I am very interested in the parts machine. If anyone wants the running one PM me as I can pick them up and store them til summer.

From the picture it looks like the tracks have been reworked with L-angle steel cleats and the original lights are gone. Is it the ST25 C bracket that is broken on the steering?

If you can tell me (or show me a picture) of the ST25 C bracket then I might be able to go over and see if that is it.

The owner is out at his cabin today so answering questions is difficult.

Some years ago I wrote an article, and I don't know how many times I explained it to folks: ST25, that's that part is Designed to break. If you beef it up then the parallel bars that operate on the thrust bearings collapse. Beef these up and one starts demolishing the Chives themselves and grinding out thrust bearings. I had molds made, which Warren has, and had plenty of spare ST25's made. However, if you "live and die" by the little tag just below the steering columb, it NEVER breaks. THEY ONLY BREAK when people force the steering when the machine isn't moving. In thousands of miles in snow trac's, snow masters, and trac masters we never succeded in breaking one. Still I've had to replace over a dozen. Generally it was Kids, or some burly brute impatiently forcing it, WHEN THE MACHINE WASN'T MOVING!

OK, I'll see if I can check on that part it may not be until tomorrow though. Word on the street is that an offer has been made on this TracMaster.

I forgot Warren had the molds. Replacement parts should not be a problem to get BUT may take some time. Anyone hear from Warren lately? I know was really busy in the summer.


HEY WARREN. How about we get a few of those ST25 made up?

St 25 is a breeze to replace. Under duress, alone, I swaped one out in less than an hour. I had an St 4 for sale at this place that sold Trucks. They went to move it. YEP, didn't head the warning tag! Some hercin (Herculean?) truck driver, cranked it right around while the machine wasn't running. Tuckers have a similar warning label, but they are tougher, still they put that tag there for a reason. We always carried a spare. I'm sure Earl and Ron both have spares in their machines all the time. Highly recomended if your going any major distance from civilazition.

The seller is going to extricate the parts machine tomorrow so I should have pictures of it by Saturday afternoon. But it might be full of snow. Apparently, it wasn't in a barn.

I'll try and see if it is the ST25 part that is broken on the good machine.

If no one here buys it for $10K it will be listed locally on Craigslist then eBay.

The long belt runs an engine cooling fan to help cool the VW air cooled motor when it is warm out or the machine is working hard. It can be taken off by loosening the belt pulley bracket bolts to let the machine operate at very cold temps and helps to warm the engine faster in cold climates.

I couldn't tell if it was the ST25 C Bracket. Here's some close-ups of the steering area where something didn't look quite right.

The good news is that if it is the ST25 C Bracket it looks like the parts machine has one.

Here's the parts machine. Maybe not as complete as I was thought but better than nothing. I couldn't see the Serial Number anywhere but it may still be under a panel that is under the snow.
