no problem doing it and it gives us something to look at this summer, I only ask that we keep it in the proper section. This really belongs in the Skidoo forum. I have moved this post, you can start the rest there. You may also want to make it a weekly thing... JMO

BTW... looks good, keep up the good work.

Looks like you got a great start to the rebuild now Nick.

It'll be great to watch the rebirth of your sled.

Do you have a name for this project?

Good Luck and keep it up.

Sandblasted more little parts, spray painted things, just a little this and that. Cleaned drive sprocket. Also took off brake disc. Project for tomm. and this weekend is clean the disc and secondary. Also hopefully start sanding the buttom of the sled becasue the suspension is almost reasy to be put back together.

Heres the brake disk :lmao:





Secondary

I'm thinking,

Keep it up. I've never seen anyone strip a sled down as much as you're doing.

Just got back from ace hardware. Bought some screws for the suspension, cotter pins, and c-ring pliers. Those will be handy, ive noticed tons of c-rings, especially around bearings. (ex. rear bogie wheels)

you need help.... send me a mailing addy and I will send a donation for c-rings and stainless material. It wont be much, but if it keeps a young guy like you interested in mechanics and not etc.. it is worth it.

PS - I want 2 more updates b4 I send (and I am a man of my word) :cool:
