Hi everyone,

I am new to your forum and a new owner of an older Ski Doo. in the manual it call for "clutch lube" for the clutch and low temp grease for the boogies, (told you it was old), what is clutch lube? a light oil or grease?  Will todays all purpose greases be OK on the boogies. Any help would be greatly appreicated.

Personally like using a lithium based grease, have had great results for years. As far as clutch lube, the older "pre t.r.a." type was needing a little graphite on the friction points. Don't use a liquid here, it will simply collect dust and dirt.

Bogies eh?  What are we talking here, a Nordic? Elan? Somethin from the 70's?  Please tell.......

Thanks for the replys, the clutch lube is the one I was wondering about the most. Use the wrong kind of lube, makes a mess, the next thing you know the belt is slipping. I'm just trying to figure it out right the first time.
If you really want to know, I found myself a nice old 1972 Ski Doo Olympique In excellent condition. Mechanically in top notch shape, want to keep it that way, the body is also in great condition with just a little surface rust on some of the chrome, ( almost a bad as having boogies eh?, not a lot of plastic on this old girl). One thing that is plastic is the hood, thought it would be fiberglass, but no such luck. There is some small cracks in it down by the hinge area, any suggestions on the best was to repair would be greatly appreicated also.

pnmrr - you should run your questions in the "Vintage" Forum - there are guys there that love the old sleds, and they really know their stuff - they will be able to help you fix/restore your old beauty!

Good luck.
