For Sale - Vehicles / 1948 bombardier
« on: October 24, 2011, 06:38:17 pm »
looking to possibly sell my bombardier 1948 woody. It just got a fresh oil change . Crysler 265 engine with 3 speed standard trans. I have the history of the machine as well as all the bills from the rebuild a number of years ago . There is a electric winch that fits front or back , as well as small wheels for moving around with no snow. The front skis need to come off to use wheels. The last owner covered doors with ply as he did not like the look of the metal doors . This is about the only thing I wanted to do to her to make look better . She is in great running condition and is waiting for snow!  I have $16500 in her and that is what I am asking.Reason for selling  ,I have found a antique truck I want to purchase. The yard is not big enough so my Wife says!
  Thanks OT for the pic post!
  located in Ontario , Ask questions!
 I have had intrest , and questions. Thanks for the emails!  I could lower the price to $15000.00

Hi all,
  Does anyone have the intrest to develop some b12 images for coats ,hats etc?  Also I have seen some cool graphics on some pictures , and the files could be used by others?  This is not my thing  ,but would be iterested in a logo ,for coat etc.
   Any thoughts?

General Discussion / night ride!
« on: January 31, 2011, 09:52:59 pm »

tonight we went for a ride on the local trails with the b12. We went to visit a friend about 15 miles away. The old bomber never missed a beat !  The trail runs along the road in a ditch for a ways, and we certainly got the looks as everyone was slowing to see us!  Great fun!   On good trail we were moving along at about 20mph , in 3rd gear.
What is a normal speed for machines out there?
Any b12 stories for this season?

  Our local Snowmobile club would be suportive if there are others.

V6 or Straight 6 Engines / ID 265 in 48bombers machine
« on: January 10, 2010, 03:32:08 pm »
Hey all,
  My machine has a ID 265 chrysler engine ,and i want to replace the points , condenser, wires, plugs. The copys of the bomber manuals do not show this size of engine. Would the  .020 gap spec from the manuals of the smaller ID chrysler engines be the same.
  The engine seems to be missing when needing power , above idel.(how to spell idel?...)  I thought I would start with this to see if it helps.
  Any info on the 265 would be great.

V6 or Straight 6 Engines / Engine lead additive?
« on: December 06, 2009, 07:43:03 pm »
Hi all,
  Light snow today!
  In a box that came with the b12 , there was a empty container of fuel additive for engines that would have had leaded gas. I think in 1948 it was leaded fuel , so I wonder what people are doing with todays fuel. Is there concern for our old engines?

Hey all,
  What is the thoughts on sealing off the engine compartment ,trans, driveshaft ,etc from the cab? Will itmake a difference on cooling engine ?The machine I have seems like it will be noisy and gassy in the cab. 

Wanted / door handles
« on: December 02, 2009, 11:47:27 pm »
Hey all,
  Does anyone know a supplier for door handles for my 48?  Are they all the same handle ,catch etc for the 5 doors?
  Also I would like a adjustable spot light like the ones you would see on a old police car or fire truck. The handle is on the inside of the vehicle to move it.
