Sorry about the link. I got one to many "http" in the link. I cant seem to find any edit function. Perhaps a moderator can change it.
Here is another attempt at linkage.

Fixed your link. For $100 it sure is a steal.

Well...I caved. I own it.
Starts and runs fine.
Looks like most everything works.
Just the broken track.
The guy even had the manual.
Gave him $75 for it.
Track was made by Bridgestone. If I can find new ones I'll be ecstatic.

Photos and details will come.
I really have enough projects at this time, but this could be fun to restore.

I not sure if you could buy a new replacement track for such a rare machine. You may have to try and repair the old track. There are places that do snowmobile track repair and you may have luck with getting an estimate on how much to repair your track. I am a big time snowmobiler and I know some people on the Snowfantics.com who had track repair done for torn out lugs and studs and if done correctly the track will be as good as new and appear nearly cosmetically perfect

Congrats dbert.
What's on it for an engine? The fuel tank puts me in mind of an older Honda.

Hold on to that if you get it fixed. What a time capsule that is...no one else will have one. Neat!

GustoGuy-
Ill check out the track repair.
Blue Hill
Engine is a Yanmar GE90-WRE.
Google shows nothing on this small gas engine. Not used to stumping Google like this.
It's running fine, but when the day comes that I want to rebuild the carb say...
I actually have a little experience with Yanmar. Sister has a couple Yanmar Diesels in their Catamaran. They are respected in the marine world.
I'm hoping to find time tomorrow to get some more time looking under the hood and some pics for you all.

oh by the way.
The manual says it weighs 595.0 lbs.
Glad we were able to drive it on and off the pickup bed with a ramp and the one working track.
