One thing that is often overlooked is the timing of the distributor, when it is too advanced, you will find it lacks in throttle response and tend to overheat very often. Once timed right the throttle response will improve and you will notice the overheat would be somewhat solved. If you still overheat then it would be a cooling problem. Hope this helps you and others just for information.

Hello all,

For those with factory power steering bombardiers, do you guys know the pressure setting is at for the cylinder up front? My 75 bomber had a different pump installed and seems to be too much pressure for the cylinder and want to lower the pressure of the pump to work properly

Nice looking tank, I think they make a big tank that goes inside the back of the bombardier as well. Steel tank 32 gallons I believe, I would like to see a plastic tank that can fit inside the back of a bombardier wide gauge. I think it would work great in the long distance rides plus it would free up a lot of the much needed space in the engine bay, just a thought of the day

Drivetrain / New rubber for tracks
« on: March 23, 2019, 03:04:55 pm »
Anyone know how much it costs for new rubber for bombardier tracks? After more than 40 years of use, tracks are finally giving in so I am searching for new rubber for my tracks. Heard of a guy that makes them out of conveyor belt seamless but trying to look for the person without any luck. Any leads of cost or anything for new rubber would help

Thanks guys for the replies. I am wondering if anyone had any issues with a shakey engine due to a Tranny off a 318 bolted to a 360 engine or if it is even the transmission thatís shaking the engine. It seems after running the engine while it shakes the tranny started leaking. Any leads would help with my problem.
