General Discussion / First drive of the year
« on: November 20, 2011, 08:33:58 pm »
Well finally got my wide gauge out of storage today.   Not much snow, but there is some.   Installed new shocks, serviced the machine and installed the front wheels for the fist time ever.   Wanted to see how it would drive without the skiis.  Good to have it out on the road again.   SGI used to license this as an Industrial Tracked Vehicle....and when I went to renew it this year they could nto do it.   So after 4 days of going back and forth, SGI says that they now cannot register these machines anymore?   Go figure!!

General Discussion / a foot of new snow
« on: April 30, 2011, 03:22:01 pm »
Well I had plans of putting my Bombardier away tomorrow for the summer.    And last night we rec'd over a foot of wet snow.   Some of my neigbors had 3 ft of snow blocking their roads so they called and I fired up the wide gauge and picked them up and took them into town.   I cannot believe how much snow we rec'd.   And it was so so wet before this and we certainly dont need this now.

General Discussion / Moosomin Museum sno Plane meet
« on: March 06, 2011, 05:54:29 pm »
Well in Moosomin today they had a sno plane meet at Maple Farm Equipment.   The Local museum put on the event.   There were 9 snow planes in total from all over including one from Norht Dakota.    The purppose was to show people the planes plus give them a chance to go for a ride in them.   I took my bombardier and as well there D Evans from Regina showed up with his wide gauge.    I know in my bomb we took over 100 people for a ride.   They were yound and old with many of the more mature generation remebering how they had gone to school in one of these once upon a time.    The weather was great and the day was very good.   Hats off to the museum for organizing a very good event.    Watch local TV and read local media as the event was covered by a host of media.

General Discussion / Happy New Years
« on: January 01, 2011, 09:19:26 pm »
Finally went for a ride today.   Took a couple of newbies for a tour around the city.   I have a Ford 302 in my wide gauge, but seems to be lacking power.   I think my pvc is plugged as seems to be spitting a little oil.   Has anyone installed a new style fule injected engine in a wide gauge yet?   Or any suggestions for which engine would be better.

General Discussion / May 15th 2009 and went for a ride
« on: May 15, 2009, 09:47:37 pm »
Hard to believe - Long weekend in May and we received 11-12inches of snow fall last night.   So while I had the narrow and wide gauges parked, had to fire up tyhe wide gauge and go for a ride.   Snow is sticky and wet, but we got a tonne of it lsat night.   Located in Yorkton Sask.   Feels good to go for a ride.   DOn;t think that will ever happen in the middle of May again.

Body / wiper Motor
« on: January 07, 2009, 06:52:24 pm »
Does anyone know where I could find a wiper motor.   The one I have is an American Bosch and I have gone to a couple of automotive stores and when they look at it, they get this kind of "deer in the headlight look".    I have tried searching the internet for one, but to no avail.   Thanks

For Sale - Vehicles / 51 Narrow Gauge - wood body for sale
« on: January 05, 2009, 05:26:39 pm »
I have a 1951 narrow gauge for sale.   Acquired it 3 years ago and using it for pleasure rides.   Tracks are decent, wood is original.   Flat head 6, 3 spd standard.   Interior still original.   Could be updated.   Wood stove.   All glass is good.   Runs flawlessly.   You can get in and drive it or if you want a restoration project, this would good as well.    I just bought a wide gauge and thus the reason for selling.   My bride says we don't need 2 of them.   Located in Yorkton Sask.

Sorry guys I have now sold this machine....it was a good unit and we wish the new owner well with it....we still have the wide gauge, that has been totally restored however we are not selling it at this time.

Drivetrain / Driver sprocket rubber
« on: December 15, 2007, 05:16:41 pm »
I need to replace the rubber on my drive sporckets on my narrow guage.    What is the best way to remove the driver sprockets.   Is there a way to loosen the track tension so that the sprocket can be easily removed and reinstalled?

Drivetrain / Suspension adjustment
« on: January 17, 2007, 08:19:43 pm »
I just acquired a narrow guage.   Having seen these in West Yellowstone many years ago, I have always dreamed of owning one.   I had no idea as to narrow guage or wide guage or what the difference was.  So I am learning quickly.   The machine I picked up is a 1951 6cyl and 6volt.   We will change it over to 12v shortly.

I do have a question though as it relates to front suspension.    My machine which I am told is a B12, seems to have one front knuckle (??if that is what it is called) sagging more than the other side.    My question is: can this be adjusted and if so, how would I go about doing it?  Any help would be greatly appreicated.

I acquired the machine simply for pleasure and so far, it is a riot.
