First....I'd like to say thanks Rick P for the trade we made for your old tundra. If you have any info on this ol girl.....do feel free to chime in here......need to make sure this sled is in perfect condition before my son gets up here.
So Rick and I did a trade and I now have a great lil project on my hands. So far I've put a better cowling on her, wire brushed all of the old paint of her, cleaned the bare frame with MEK, and repainted her with black epoxy paint(and the skis too). The skis have some wide ski-skins....nice bonus. I also hammered out a couple minor dents before she got new paint. The track and all the suspension is in SUPERB condition! In fact......I believe that everything under there is new to include the camoplast track where ALL the metal clips are there and it looks fresh out a factory. I went ahead and screwed about 60 ATV studs into the track where there is a flat circular spot on each paddle....it almost looked like it was made for an atv stud.....that's how perfect it turned out.
So my next project is finding a good place to get tundra parts. The wiring that goes to the headlight is damaged due to touching the exaust, and according to Rick.......the coil that runs the lights has to be replaced. Also......Is there an actual plate where I can block off the hole where the oil pump is? I want to get rid of that oil injector tank and just run mix......is this a bad idea? The reason I ask......is because if that injector goes out again...no oil. You wouldnt have this problem if you some how remove this junk and just run mix! If anybody has some knowlege on this wonderful little sled.....please do share! I also need new runners...any place to get them in anchorage or will i have to order? AK mining n diving has no parts for a sled of this age....they stop at 96.
