Thanks Don. Lyndon told me what the hp was when I bought it, but I have slept since then.

Jim - Here is what my son found on the electronic ignition.

Compufire Dis-IS System P/N 11100

Coil Pack Replacement P/N 30320

5497526MARSHALL03211

Hope that helps. Hate to be stuck at home when the snow is on the ground.

Joe

Had trouble with the points. It was not wanting to start, bought several sets without any luck. Points, condenser, whole nine yards. This one is starting up every time. Hope it works out.

I just got the snow trac st4 from fishing alaska in Kenai and the ser# is 708 not sure what the engine is yet . It will stay in the Kenai area. Found another one on Craigslist yesterday in Anchorage he is asking $4250.00 for it looks like it could be a easy fixer, Thanks for the forum it is a good place to find alot of information.

Plenty of snow at most of the comm sites I work on in the Cascades. Yep it is trailer, but then again, I would rather look at snow from afar than up close and personal out the kitchen window.

Had all kinds of fish hooks in the track. These 4 introductory units, shipped to the US military for testing were Unique in that instead of aluminum cabs, alot of the sheetmetal on the cabs was Sheet Brass! A guy in North Pole has one, not in too bad of shape. The information I have for #4, was from 1994, not current. But I believe the one in North Pole recently changed hands. Your's is likely the lowest OPERATING unit, because the one from North Pole was heavily used for Hunting, and that usually leads to their demise. The last time I saw a "Brass-Cab" was in 2000, and it was marginally operational. >
Snow Trac's fit thru the cargo door of a DC6. A mine operator in the NOattack preserve, about 100 miles from Red Dog Mine, and equal distant from Kotzebue, liked them to use at his mine, only accessable by aircraft, and operated seasonally. I believe he has 6 or 7, possibly one is operational. these machines are inherently doomed by 1) being used for mining service, and 2) their remote location. What the miner did was rob parts of all the other machines to keep one machine alive. Seeing them might make a grown man cry. The one at the mine at Liven good was "Toast". They were not really designed for mining. Just to get the numbers off these machines would be a monumental task. Fly to alaska, Fly from there to Kotzebue, find the old miner at his house there ( heavy drinker, always sleeps till noon!) make arraingements with a bush pilot to fly out to the mine...... Kinda get the 'gist' of it? It's just short of a full blown Expedition! One could get some interesting pictures though. I already did the hard work for you, flew to Kotzebue, located the old Miner.... all you have to do is find the Miner and hire a bush pilot! good luck!
going back and reading this was interesting Vic lawers is using several snow tracs and I trackmaster at his mine up by deering still. the coast guard buried 3 or 4, 2 band models at the dump at port Clarence. there was 2 sent to st Laurence island, they were both 3 band models the one from savoonga is sitting in vic's yard here in nome the other one one was left on gambel and I presume is buried. I understand there may still be a runnable snow trac in koyuk, but when the engine died no one could figure how to get it running again. put a snow trac around salt spay and it's amazing how bad they rot out the one I saw that came from savoonga looked like swis cheese.

Don very good on your history and detective work! So Bill Bolunis Sr.and his wife owned AKTIV Recreational on 7329 Old Harbor Rd. In Anchorage? And yes this trac has been in Bristal Bay for many years it was never used to haul Salmon instead they used it to lay the water pipe from the lake to the plant. Back when wood pipe was used! There is a sticker on the cab from Westgate Truck Center also Ski facilities Inc. So I'm not sure if that is where they were purchased. Overall it is good shape it reads 2273 miles on the speedo. Thanks for the reply.

Thanks everyone. Came a long way since I bought it about 14 months ago. Planning on using for fun. New engine, transmission, clutch, fuel tanks, etc. going in shortly. Didn't know anything about them when I bought it but the body was in good shape, interior looked good, and had original seat cushions. Below are some pics of it when I bought it.
