    LMC 1500 track removal and tire replacement

    Has anyone tried an old school fence stretcher for a track jack? Goldenrod is the brand I am familiar with. $35-40 at your local Farm & Ranch type store, so less than $100 a pair. Also I think I saw on the sight where someone with some welding skill had made track jacks out of old bumper...

    WTS 1978 Thiokol Super Imp 1450 wide track

    In a Grey Hair moment I forgot! Print out the pictures you take of the machine. Also print two of the Data Plate. One for application and one for the officer who does VIN inspection. The folks at the treasurers office don’t see too many things with just a 3 or 4 digit serial number and no real...

    WTS 1978 Thiokol Super Imp 1450 wide track

    For what it’s worth! Some states don’t title vehicles that are not operated on county, state, fed roads. A bill of sale is all you get when you purchase. Also seems like the older machines weren’t titled, don’t know when that changed. I live in Montana and had titles created for my 1962...

    5 miles to go

    Beautiful Evening! Headed home yesterday about 6 pm. About 5 miles to go and the Snow Master running fine. Temperature was maybe 38 so trail was a bit slushy in the sunny spots. Hopefully another month before road gets miserable. Been to the POB and then some grocery shopping.

    Need Some Advice About Our Remote Cabin Property

    Probably you have already been there! The picture with the Funk ID plate sent me to off to Google land. It sound like oil issues in the Funk transmission can imitate a bad clutch ie. sluggish or weak performance. Seems like the Funk transmissions were widely used in farm tractors, but I...

    ST4B engine RPM

    What rpm do most of you use for cruise on your Snow Tracs? I have been looking over a lot of the Snow Trac articles and have been unable to figure out what is reasonable operating rpm. My Snow Master is a 1979 and appears to be basically stock. I run at 7000’ MSL +- 500’ and realize that my...

    Need Some Advice About Our Remote Cabin Property

    Unless cyl 4 is really weak the engine looks not to be a problem. Seeing as he was only using first and sometimes second gear, could he change drive sprockets to get a lower gearing, more torque? It doesn’t sound like high speed is a must have for his use. I have no idea what Imp speeds are...

    Need Some Advice About Our Remote Cabin Property

    The closeup picture of the front end shows an access door that should go to radiator cap. The lower part of the body has a hole in the center that I would think was for hand crank starting. 30 hp Wisconsin OK! Had those on hay bailer as a teenager (at 130 lbs I wasn’t able to make it happen), I...

    Need Some Advice About Our Remote Cabin Property

    Ok? Looking at picture of front of cab. It basically slopes from the bumper to top of cab with an extension, protrusion for the radiator. In search on google for 1402 and 1404 Imps I see no pictures with similar cab! Also the bumper/front of belly pan is different than most of 1404 pics. The...

    Need Some Advice About Our Remote Cabin Property

    Does your Imp have the 4 speed rear axle and 3 speed tranny? By chance were you in too high a gear in the rear end? With 12 gears available, I wouldn’t think you would be powering out. Serial number would help a lot in figuring out potential issues.

    1999 Litefoot II Not mine

    On East Idaho Craigslist. Asking $16,000.00. No pics! I think this machine was on there a couple weeks ago. Had pics at that time. No windshield, no cab. Think they were asking 20k then!

    Need Some Advice About Our Remote Cabin Property

    A thought to add to your challenges! Is there a trail going up the two short routes that is wide enough for the snowcat? If not, will you be allowed to open one up? Is the property up the canyons Forest Service, BLM, state owned, or private? Also what depth snow are you anticipating? Your...
