I probably should have mentioned they work really good in deep snow
Hi all, The last trip to the cabin, on the way down I started to get a little hot where I had to stop and add water a couple of times.
What I found at home is the bottom of the upper radiator hose had a hole in it. Not sure how it happened, the hose was not rotted and it was cut through the string reinforcement. I don't know how it could have got cut by abrasion where the cut was located. I put a new hose on it and when I tested it I could see the weep hole on the water pump weeping a little. I ordered a water pump and timing belt kit figuring that while I am in there I should change the belt too. It showed up yesterday so I put it on today. Tomorrow I will fill it with water and test my work, then button it up and take it back to the Mountain as I have decided to just leave the tracks on it fr summer use. The terrain there is very steep with loose dirt. If I put tires on it I'm not sure it will climb the hills. The whole reason to have it up there is to be able to drive around on the property. If I have to stay on the roads it defeats the purpose. So that being said I will soon order a set of tracks for the Van and get it ready for winter.
Seem you'll do better with Matts than the Camos pods. I always wanted to run some but never had the opportunity..
Let me know if you need any thing from Mattracks I’ve got a friend that works there and would be concerned to hear of your experience!
