Did you need to install a seperate fuel pump? I see what looks like a fuel pump below where the air cleaner sits.
The machine looks very clean, no traces of oil in the engine bay unlike many others that are swimming in oil and dirt!
Are the tynes on the bucket removable?

No, the item you are seeing is a coolant heater that you can plug in and it warms the entire engine. Thanks, the engine or hydraulics do not leak a drop of anything. Unusual for 3700 hrs. The forks are removable just by loosening the clamp on each one. Thanks.

ThomasM, what did you find out with the chain grinding noise you had in previous post? It looks as though you solved it fine. Just curious

Jerry, I never did figure it out. Being it only happens at near full rpms I just left it alone being I only run it 2/3's throttle or so...I think it is the chain slapping the guide while turning slightly...Don't have the time to look in to if fully. Thanks. I like the new tires that I put on there, they are Firestone Duraforce HD tires...They look a little different but they sure do have traction....

AHHH heaters, thats one thing i have never seen as our temeratures never get so low as to need them. I hope i will never need them either, i don't like it when its THAT cold.

I like the looks of the engine heater. I have what they used to call a tank heater on ours and it warms the engine up but it takes 1500 watts also so it doesn't get used as much as it should be. I do need more heat inside the cab though I got a little 12volt heater but there isn't much output there for as much current as it draws.

Awe come on Tazza, there is nothing quite like running a snowmobile across a frozen lake at 198 kmph. The -30 temps have the fuel curve leaned right out, the egt's are up around 1300 f and she running like never b4.
And if that aint enough to take your breath away just stick your head a bit above the windshield!!!

LOL Ken, thats all true it woud be a lot of fun but i'm sure you get sick of the cold pretty fast!. I'd need to build a heated shed to work in as now i do most of my work outside (mainly because i need to build another rotten shed). In the cold i'd freeze.

You have to get equiped for it, I can't work in freezing temps very long either. You dress for it, The equipment you use very much in the winter has heat and cab enclosures and I'm fortunate to have 2400 sq feet of summer permanently attached to my property.

Works good for summer rains to. The only thing you know for sure about the weather in ontario is that you don't know what its going to be like. We can get + or - 30 C, but not too much of each

I'd love a shed that size, looks impressive. Would take a bit to heat it though!!!!
I did some work with my machine during our so called winter, it would have been say 5-7C, just before the sun went down, i was in a big thick jumper and i was still freezing with the wind blowing in my face. It was great in reverse as i got the warm air from the rad and oil cooler :) There was no wind to speak of, just the breeze from the machine moving around. From that experience no one could possibly operate a machine moving snow for any length of time without a heater and enclosed cab.

Thats so true, i rather the cold as i simply add a jumper too but when its crazy cold and windy your face and hands feel it really bad. I'm probably just a big sook, out winter is NOTHING like you get over there. I'm sure you would laugh at our winter temperatures :) Our summer on the other hand...... It does get hot but the humidity...... nothing like a 40C day with 95+ % humidity, the air feels almost solid . Bless the inventer of air conditioners.
