I’m thinking there were some posts from this site that were lost when this site went down for a little while and then came back. There was a French person who commented about the spider system on here. I think I remember him saying that the sliders added more flotation in the deep snow. About 50% for the middle replacement of the two wheels and about 75-100% more flotation with the front 3 wheels replaced with a slider. You are sacrificing ride comfort and more noise for the better flotation in the deeper snow.
There is a Facebook page from Quebec called “Les amateurs d’autoniege/snowmobile du Quebec” where they show all their bombardiers and the various slider systems they use.
Some use wood for the bottom slider, others look like they are using a UHMW material I would think.
From what I see when you use the longer slider, two of the axles are in a pocket where they slide back and forth for tilt movement.

Hello,
This is the two wheel slider system and I think it will work really well. I have seen a three wheel off -slider system also. Has any one heard any plus-minuses on either if the systems. I can't believe how hard it is to get information. You would think some one would jump at the opertunity to supply help!

Hey, just got an email from the company. Apparently they do not make windows for bombardiers anymore, so I am checking with another company that makes windows, and I will see what they can do. Thanks again old blue

Sylvester glass and aluminum products in North Battleford Saskatchewan at 306-445-6233 have made sliding windows for the front of the Bombardier after I sent them a drawing of the opening they cost $500 for two but can make any window. For the back windows I took them out of a truck camper . If you go to Northern truck under old blue 1963 rebuild you will see these windows in my Bombardier

Here is a picture of a sliding window I've been eyeing on for side windows, just wondering if anyone out there knows of a place that makes sliding windows that can be made to fit the bombardier windows

Here is a picture of the model and serial number for the power steering cylinder that is used in the newer bombardiers (74-81 I believe)
