well everyone i give up to complicated to post those darn pics on here . If you want to see the darn thing you will have to wait till davids vintage sled .com posts all my pics there is one on there for sled of the week .. thats my wifes when we found it . AS for how far i am -- Painted frame front black and put Fiberglass pan back on after redoing that . new bumper - handelbars and a set of repainted ski-'s and made wear bars out of 7/16th fence posts . redid the hood and dash only tapped off and re mat finished the things and added a patch on front lip of hood where it was busted out .. now working on getting the eng all nice and clean and repainted . hopfully by friday the 1-7-11 it will be bolted back in place .   Now What size belt is being used on Wildcats That works Dayco ?? anyone have a good idea about a gas tank that HAD rust in it for cleaning out ..?? I basicly cleaned out 15 year old gas and rust and coated inside of tank with car eng oil for mean time ..Other than that should have sled back togeather and running by the end of Jan . if all goes well .

Thanks very much . I called my local parts goorue and he said a Carlile 1093 is the x referance to the Wildcat and Viking machines . I just finished up the engine cleaning it and painting what not ready to instal hopfully today after i fabricate a belt guard for the thing .. so what happened to original dash dont happen to this one . then i can start putting things back as they were get it set up and possibly fire the thing up . YAAAAAAAY!

Well got thinking old school on it and decided to try a hotter plug in it maybe a 8 or 9 to bad i wasent thinking when i bought the first set of plugs to buy extra .. Wife loves the way it turned out . blondieb  Well maybe tomarow it will start for me so i can adjust the carb -- tweek it .. Then maybe she will be able to go tool around a bit on it .  ###3  As for color of eng . it was rusty big time I repainted it silver then tapped it off ((striped )) then black over that .. should have done stripes in white .. anyways Thanks a bunch everyone for your support ..
