I've been following the sprocket issue. My Dad worked for Equipment Services in Anchorage when they were the dealers and bought a new ST4. If I remember correctly they were re-facing the sprockets back then. Has anyone tried this approach? I have a friend here in Homer that owns a Propeller shop and they re-build boat propellers all day long. They weld new material on the edges and grind off the excess. There's a specialty welding rod site that might have the correct bronze. I'll check it out.
Hi Folks, Finally got on the site! No more creeping..I'm in Homer Alaska and have one ST4, #390 and an unknown S/N Trac Master. Would love to hear from others in Alaska with the same. Thanks to JimVT and 3512b for the contacts. Im fairly handy with some things but not so much with Computer programs. They just don't speak english to me. I didn't mean to exempt others outside Alaska, would like to hear from you too. Just harder to come visit. trying to post pictures... maybe get it one day.
