Check out the porcelain part of the spark plug. Does it appear to have changed color? The white porcelain is the insulator of the spark plug. If the porcelain has turned beige or a light tan color then it is still in good working order. If the spark plug is very white you could have an air leak. If it has changed to other colors then you have a problem with the engine. Is there plenty of coolant? If the coolant levels are low put fresh coolant into the snowmobile following the owners manual guidelines.A recommended coolant/antifreeze is ethylene glycol (the green kind) to resist freezing.
With over 20000 groomed snowmobile trails a favorite pastime for thousands of Minnesotans is snowmobiling. Keep in mind however that a snowmobile is only as safe as its driver. Before you jump on your sled and hit the trails give yourself a little refresher in snowmobile safety. Minnesota is a "Zero Alcohol" state. Never use alcohol or drugs before or while riding a snowmobile. Safety perception is altered after only one drink. Since over 70% of all fatal snowmobile accidents involve alcohol* staying sober can help you and others stay alive to enjoy another ride.
A lot of online merchants are offering exactly what you might need! There are also many online classified ads made specifically for people to buy and sell their vintage snowmobiles and their parts. If you do a search on "vintage snowmobile parts" or "vintage snowmobile classified" you will probably find what you need. If the parts that you need are not heavy of bulky look around different auction sites as well. The shipping charges probably would not be too expensive and you are likely to get a good bargain as well.
Wintertime as we all know is a time of cold winds falling snow and snow covered terrain. The average vehicle needs snow chains to travel through snow covered roads but these will have trouble with deeper snow covered areas. Snowmobiles which were configured for this type of terrain began in 1916 and you can still find some of these age-old snowmobile vehicles out on the snow covered ground. The antique snowmobile still has a lot to offer in the way of restoration. You also might be amazed at the strength of these old vehicles.
