Default It only took 10 years, but I finally got my snowmobile fixed.

I got this chassis from someone on here or MJ over 10 years ago. My 250's hood, tunnel, skis, and tub had all seen the end of their life but the engine was good. This one had a blown engine. Either way, both have been sitting for 10 years.

We stopped getting snow down here so I never swapped the engine, I also thought it was going to be a PITA. Jeepaholic came over and we looked at it and found out it was only 3 bolts. Looks like I will still get to have some fun this year! Had to replace all the brittle fuel lines though.

The front one is what is left of mine, the hood is destroyed on the floor. The rear one is the one I got on here.

I honestly didn't think the engine would run anymore, it had been outside uncovered for those 10 years. Started after only a couple pulls!
