Walkaround of a Vintage Polaris 340 SS Colt
The greatest most realiable beater sled a man could ever own!
I bought this sled about 5 yrs ago as a restoration project. It didn't
run, bad track, etc. So I pulled suspension, installed a good used cleated
track, new drive shaft bearings, & greased all suspension components.
Cleaned entire fuel system from tank to carbs. Installed one used coil (no
spark on one side), painted the muffler.
Ski's were shot, so I found a used pair of chromies. The bottoms were
rusted, so I sanded and painted the bottoms with ski skins and new
carbides. New spindle bushings and fixed broken wiring to the one
Found a used chaincase (original one was cracked), and put on a different
year juice brake reservoir/handle (original one was froze up), & cleaned up
the clutch faces as best I could and installed a used drive belt.
This sled sits outside. The only winterizing it ever gets is to drain tank
and run carbs dry. It starts up and runs great EVERY winter!
Does about 50-55 on hardpack. The Colts were F/C, the SS Colts were F/A
with points, the TX's were F/A CDI! Some call the SS's the baby brothers
to the TX line. With some tuning, these little F/A engines would make
great vintage dragsters!
So, bottom line...I decided not to restore it. (Probably spent more on the
6" carbide runners and ski skins than the sled is worth!!) It is the
'beater' of my collection and is the one I let all 'first time riders' take
out for a spin!
