I saw some cool pictures of T snowmobiles and I was curious if anyone knows if the snowmobile conversion kits were a permanent thing or if people could take it back off in the summer months. Also, did the conversion kit come with a second axle and an additional set of back tires?
These folks might have the answers:
Good stuff here, too:
We don't get enough snow in MO to make it worthwhile, but if I still lived in CT I would look into getting one!

I put Dad's Snow Bird kit on my old Runabout for 2 winters, and back off for the summer.
I didn't have any underdrive though, so it was very underpowered. We didn't go far with it because we couldn't get into high gear much.
The kits were made to be removable, but as the years went by an old used T could be found and left it set up all year. The prices varied for the kits but in most cases the kit was about the same price as a mew T. It did come with all fittings for assembly but the front wheels were moved and used as the bogie or idler wheels.
Idler axle assembly for Snowmobile.
