Len I was told that the high temp epoxy can also be used to repair broken exhaust manifolds.

It works up alot like JB and just like JB it is best to allow it cure even longer than suggested times. I have to admitt I was very leary but it proved itself.

Okie...glad yours did what it should.

Mine ranr rich as well when the carb iced up out west. I would shut off the gas and it would come out of it for a short period run great and die when out of gas. Take the bottom of the carb off and clean it out if it is not ice.

Made my extension cord today. Now with the cord and carrying an extra light fixture my field modification should only take five or ten minutes.

Rumors of my assimilation have been greatly exaggerated.

Stock metal skis. Skins would be nice in the open, but make turns on my tight trails in the brush difficult. I opt for tighter turns. I only make the light modification occasionally, when I gotta travel at night to see the trail to be able to go.

I have run both and without a doubt the wide skins are a fantastic improvement. Those stock bravos skis stick and don't float worth a darn. Having watched the progression of things this year with our skis I think wides skins are awesome. I haven't seen any hindrance in the turning. Just that they don't dive on me like stock skis with I am maneuvering around in the trees. The lack of snow that comes over the cowling and up into our faces is very noticeable.

I don't think it is a ski problem that they plow. They are just front end heavy. You got a gas tank up front and the tub and frame are steel. My tundra is front end lite. Never plows, but can't steer climbing hills or pulling a heavy load. I'd never put skins on the tundra. I agree there would be advantages to putting a pair on the Bravo. You would have to run my ( for strategic purposes ) tight twisty trails through alder jungles to get a feel for whether the skins would be a pain. On the Super Jag I've run it with skins and without and there was a big difference in how well it turned. I run it with skins these days as it is my deep snow machine when the Bravo or Tundra won't cut it.

Got me thinking. I got plenty of extra skis lying around. Maybe I should rig a pair with skins; then I could swap out depending on snow conditions. Later in the trapping season deep snow is more of a problem than turning radius.

Family Trapper - That old bravo is looking good. Fun to see that it is up and going and that you are having a good time with it. Guess I had to log back on the form now that I am back in AK. Take care out west.

Did you ever find ice screws for the bravs. I am on the look out for some. I think it'll make a big difference in climbing banks, frozen overflow, pulling loads etc. I better start calling around seeing what i find.

Finally completed my "FT Mods" to the Enticer LT Trapper I know its not a Bravo but it has a lot of the same parts and the trapper model came stock with a low geared transmission, clutch and carb for better low end performance and this one came w/ reverse. It has the old Yamaha 340 in the engine room. I have: raised rear end 2", front end 1 1/2", raised handle bar 3", seat 5 1/2", widened ski stance around 3" added Lexan windshield extension.


I wanted to keep the passenger handles so I made the seat oped rear to front instead of side to side.

Lid of box holds seat lid open and makes a nice table top. An extra piece w/ notches cut to lock around hinges extends the table and fits in box.

Here it is next to a "stock" Enticer Lt

Chain saw scabbard on rear of box.

Thinking about trying to winter in this old bus I found, do you think I'll be OK?

Hmmm, been wondering if the reverse setup off an enticer could be adaptorized to the bravo.

I know there's the kit, but it's $800.

I cut the wires to the TOR "throttle over ride" (on my Enticers) and JB welded the button thats on the idle screw because it kept sticking and changing my idle by an 1/8" or so.

I know I'll probably get a scolding from White, and/or a burnt motor, but I use the auto oil system in all 4 Enticers and have not had them fail, yet. I did cook a jug and piston once by knocking off an oil line when messing w/ the carb in the field. Mixed gas would have saved her.
