Loose head nuts can cause a loss in compression. Replace any worn or damaged gaskets. Are there blockages in the fuel line? The next step is to check your fuel line for blockages.

Learn the proper technique for handling the ups-and-downs! Decrease your speed as you approach the bumpy section but keep your speed consistent. (Avoid revving the throttle as it will dig the bumps deeper for future riders).

We also can understand and respect where this industry started and what drives it to produce better snowmobiles. Many of these antique snowmobiles have been restored by enthusiasts. You can often see a restored antique snowmobile at small privately owned museums that are dedicated to the many antique snowmobiles that were used in those days as well as at the companies which created them. From these places you can ask about the history of any antique snowmobile that is on display. As you look at these snowmobiles you will get a feel of how people have changed the look and performance of these vehicles as their needs over the long time have changed.
The earliest incarnation of snowmobiles date back to 1923 when Carl Eliason of Sayner Wisconsin hand-built the first model. His invention consisted of a modified Model T Ford stripped of its tires and the undercarriage replaced with tracks and skis. His invention proved popular for rural mail delivery. Thankfully snowmobiles have progressed greatly since those heady days of delivering mail and can be found throughout the worlds snowy realms. One such destination where snowmobiles have found a particular home is nestled in the resort community of Whistler BC.
