    It was made in about 1985. It does have the shear pins but the price was right. It just sat in a remote location for the last 10 or so years, the throttle assembly was scavenged and brakes needed rebuilt. Found the brake pads and rebuild kits at All Seasons for $$ and Bob actually had the throttle assembly. Converting the axles will probalby be cost prohibitive. Will try it out for a couple seasons across the Tanana in the flats.

    Default Argo repair

    Sorry Bob if you are watching this thread. I mean no offense but I do want to be careful. My question for this forum is......does anyone have any experiance using "Argo bob" for Argo repairs? Is he reliable and honest? I bought a used Argo this winter and I would like someone knowledgable go through it with a fine tooth comb and tell me what it might need to be in tip top mechanical condition. I would like to use Bob if he's still available and good. If anyone feels uncomfortable answering here than please drop ME a line personaly.
    Thanks everyone for what help ya can give me.

    All Season Argo , Good luck on finding a top (Used),Personally I had both fiberglass and the rag top I like the rag top better , Why I do not know I always wear ear muffs when I go out on long trips .The fiberglass just seems to hold more noise.

    Five years back I needed new brake pads for Ranger track machine. I had new ones put on by a shop in Anchorage for $15. Canít remember who, sorry.

    I would think a top made out of Alun would be lighter and stronger and it not hard to make a top.

    Jason at all seasons argo is the only one that makes fiberglass tops for the argo. H made the mold himself and it is in there shop. If you want a fiberglass you need to go through him or make your own mold with a fiberglass worker. sorry man. I just baught the last half hard top off of him last week. the full hard tops take away from your floatability though. makes them too top heavy.
