    Snow Trac Registry

    I haven't noticed if building a Snow Trac registry has ever been successfull. If not, I am willing to assemble a spreadsheet with that information. The idea would be to try to document every known unit whether operational or not, still in existence or not. Interested???

    ST-4 Carburetors

    While getting my ST-4 ready for the playing season, I found that it doesn't want to run very well. I had some issues last year but they would come and go.
