Default THIOKOL 4T REGRISTRATION PAGE

Please use this thread if you have a THIOKOL 4T series cat. Enter your dash plate info (model, date manufactured, serial#, date shipped, ect). Please include a picture of your cat and or dash plate. In my searches, Im looking at finding out just how many 4T's are still out there, how the serial numbers were given out, and any non-stock mods that have been done. In the future, it would be nice to actually make a website that can be used as a real registration page. Spread the news to all those out there that still have these beasts lurking in their yards.

GREAT IDEA.

I will make this page a "Sticky" page so it always stays near the top of the forum, it will be a nice resource for all you Thiokol owners who were unable to find and buy a vastly superior Snow Track (like mine!) But seriously, we have a bunch of Thiokol owners here and it will make a good way to gather information and maintain it in a simple spot for future reference.

I also made the Thiokol "600" registration page a "Sticky" thread so it will be near the top of the Forums list along with this one.

1961 Thiokol 4T trackmaster - tag on dash reads ''AX618'' - and that is the number we used to register it with DOL since it had no other tags.

Original color was the dark powder blue

there was no power divider in it when we bought it unfortunately - so some modifications were necessary -

Original 223 swapped for a Ford 300
Original tranny swapped for a Ford automatic
Original twin dana's swapped for diff from a 78 Bombardier model 250 (new ring/pinion which had to be flipped in order to get the correct rotation since there was no power divider) - looking for a brownie now to lower the gearing


I also have done a custom Thiokol embroidery design that I can do on hats/shirts/bags - anything I can fit in my embroidery machine basically! These are some of the shirts I did for Black Diamond Custom Cats (I think they were in Michigan?).

The black diamond 4T10 photo history (abbreviated). Power-divider (not-diff), based unit, of course. From $2,500 to $25,000! See other posts on the forum for other 'current state' photos.

What's the deal with all the private dataplate stuff? It's not like you can get their address or credit card info from it.

The TRAILER on this one is very nice! Would love something like that! It's just perfect! I'm not fond of the white paint on top myself, but at least the rest of orange :)
