Ken's '26 TT barn find has been turned into a fine snowmobile over the last few months work on Thursday nights in his shop at Merrimack Valley Tire in Havehill, Mass..

You may remember my earlier posts about, with the helped of brothers Paul & Steve and with Mike and myself we helped Ken pull his TT out of a barn in Vermont on September 17, 2016. Tonight January 19, 2017, after many Thursday nights work we are installing the tracks and have it up and running!!!! Now all we need is some snow.

Great times and Happy snowmobile,

They are some massive tracks. And it runs like a dream!
Liking this. Thanks Warren!
Ken's been very busy since September. I remember when it came out of the barn.
We harbor a littler one in our building at a volunteer club. Love these machines. The owner puts the skis on for me once a year and that little Ford looks so "macho" that way!
I was just now asking myself (internally, inside my head) if I'd want one. Maybe! It might be able to climb my icy hill right now if I dared take it down to the road.

A few of the club members rode this venue last February when the Morrissville Vt. meet was cancelled. The Model T Snowmobile Club will be joining the Museums Winter Carnival day on Saturday the 5th of February. We will have our own tent and we will be able to use the Museum building at any time. There will be plenty of parking for trucks and trailers in the village of Tamworth.

Happy snowmobiling,

Warren

Ken, Paul Chet and I had another busy, but very enjoyable, night working on Ken's snowmobile. 1st we changed the buggy springs axle and location, because the other axle was allowing those springs carry all the weight.

Next we worked on putting on the front skies,

After our dinner break Ken and I worked on making some badly needed flooring. We haven't got much time left before the meet, to get everything Ken wants to do done.

Hey Ken, better take a look at these Model T & TT snowmobiles. I think your tracks may have to be put on a diet, they are at least twice the width of the ones at Muster Farm today in North Sutton.

Happy snowmobiling,

Warren
