Thanks OLD trucker.  It looks alot like 48bomber's and Houlio's.  These pics were taken this month at a vintage snowmobile ride near McGreger,MN.  Will get more pics of details when it gets out of garage. Have been researching cause for differential whine. Ideas?

   I had my diff to a specialist here. Mine has some slight play, or slop in it. If I use it like it is, they say I'll hear a whining noise all the time on account of the slack in the crown & pinion & a chip off one of the pinion gears. I've had three local mechanics here look at it & they think with new bearings & seals, & (80/90 gear oil ??), it should be OK. I know very little about this stuff myself .

Thanks for the pictures!  It looks just like mine , only in a little better exterior condition.
On the trips out with mine I cant hear the differential at all. The tracks make some noise on the sprockets , but minimal. The engine is where the majority of the noise comes from in the cab ,but is not loud enough to bother.
  The diferential can be checked for play by taking the u joint off by the diff, and taking the tracks off the sprockets.
check the axcel play and seals behind the sprockets ,turn the drive end to see if there is any play in the bearing end. I was told by a mechanic the play turning back and forth should be a 1/16 turn.As well the mechanic turned mine with a screw driver against his ear  and to the diff housing to listen for noises within like several teeth broken etc. The amount these machines are used ,a little play wont hurt as long as the bearings are good.Change the oil.
  I am no expert  but this is what a mechanic did for me .

Hey All,
  Today I took off the front wheels and installed the skis back on. Then we went around the yard in the fresh snow from Wed. This is going to be alot of fun this winter out on the trails!!!!

48bomber, do you have an adapter for the front wheels. This is the first time I heard of putting wheels on the front of a woody. Any pics floating around for an old trucker to look at ??

Hi all,and OT,
  Its been a bit from my last post.  The wheels were made up to fit in the pin holes for the ski. The wheels are small tires from a conveyor belt from a mine. Only about the size of a kids wagon tire. It will not turn very well , but atleast the machine can be moves around during the summer. I have no pics of them but can get some when I put them on if you like.

   48bomber, look up general discussion.. page 2, second last one down. It's called "adding power steering"

   48Bomber I was talking to Glen, (the fellow that's building a bomber from scratch), & he's talking about some kind of in line valve that might work in this case. I will keep an eye on this.
   I'm surprised that the people that know & have woody's with power steering haven't helped us out.
