The Machine is at Alain Benoit's in Valcourt Quebec. He is doing the body work prep and I am doing the tracks, motor and driveline.

They are except they are clipped at the bottom corner to follow the curve of the body just above the drive sprocket.

   Oldsledz I really like that color paint. Would I be right in saying that it is the proper maroon color that Bombardier used way back when ??

    That's one mean looking motor.  It looks fairly easy to install that way.

  B-7 is almost finished. Just have to do the wiring and gauges and then the punch list. Hope for snow too will help.   Oldsledz..

I think they were 4.75 x 16.   The old size is 4.5 and is not available anymore only if you want the Bombardier ones,  but they do not have any tread,  so I got these from Coker Tire.   They have a good website.
  The 4.75 will fit your B 12 with no problem.   I had to space out the bars on the B 7 so they would fit.  They are just 1/4" wider but fit the cleats fine.
