ps... $12K is insane.

But y'all ... Boggie has a good 601 that I'm sure you could pry from his iron fist...with some sweet talk... (interpretation... ask Karin to sweet talk it away). ;)

Found on a ranch near Goldendale, WA. Owner had it sitting in their yard for a few years hoping to eventually repair it. They recovered it from the ranch of a friend where it had sat on a hillside for many years. That owner had acquired it from either a govt agency or utility company. They used it to reach the ranch in the winter and to carry family and friends on ski outings. At some point it broke down enroute and there it sat for many, many years. It's first career was in the service of the USAF. Now it has been delivered into the less than deserving hands of SnoOps. He hopes to gut the power divider setup and install an automatic transmission with an OC12 differential. We shall see...

One down, two more to recover. :biggrin:

Purchased off Ebay from the terrible Ivan in Greeley, CO. He had repainted "everything" and many problems to start with, but seems to drive OK and has some good things... New tracks, wheels, tires, interior tweeks - I'm optimistic and hope to work on restoring it as we go, then do a real one sometime in the future. Will be used as our transportation to our cabin and haul friends up the mountain for backcountry skiing... and hopefully more as we go along!

Glad to see folks still posting their cats here for tracking. Its amazing the history behind whats left out there. My 4t10 has been put on the far back burner, due to the recent acquisition of a DMC 3700! It will be shown here in the next few months. Im planning a van/vw bus body for it.

Kinda off topic here guys but, anyone out there willing to sell the drive sprockets off their machine, I'm interested.

Also, just where is the registration plaque located?


New member
OK guys, I found my registration tag, it was riveted just over the top of the drivers door, here is what it says as best as I can get it typed on here.

Model No. 4T8W Serial No. 104
No. of Passengers 8
Utah Scientific
Research Foundation
in affiliation with
Utah State University
Logan Utah
Pat. Pending

there you go, I guess mine was originally a 8 passenger, I thought it was a 2 passenger,

Anyway, does anyone have a set of driver sprockets off a machine that they decided not do anything with, I sure could use a set, mine are toast and winter is coming.

Well guys the wording on the tag didn't come out as I layed it out in the post before submitting it.....but it is all on the post

Dear Loneoutrider:
Welcome to the insanity.
As you dispense with the mice carcass, keep us apprised, with lots of pictures, of your progress. You might consider starting a new thread in the restoration and modification forum, all the while posting specific questions in the repairs and parts.

And remember the snow-cat restoration motto:
No Learning Curve Too Steep, No Pockets Too Deep

Have fun, stay safe.
Here are pics of my 4T8 and the data plate.
Took it for about a 3/4 mile test drive today. Success!

Hello all! I'm new to the forum. I own a 1963 4T4 Trackmaster in Idaho. Had it for 30 years in the family. Pulled it out of the shop and have begun to refurb it after 20 years of sitting indoors. Need to recondition the rear drive sprockets as the rubber is worn off. Any ideas of where to do that/moulds available, replacement parts etc... Any help would be appreciated. I'll look for the info plate/serial number. I haven't seen one yet. Where are they normally located?
