    Anybody interested in my '72 Ski Doo? Real nice old sled, runs strong, rides right, steers right, stops as well as any of these ever did (plan ahead). She's a survivor and the only flaw I can find is a seeping chain drive housing gasket. It wouldn't take a lot to make this really, really nice cosmetically but she's a ton of fun as she is right now.

    $650 picked up in Dexter, New York.

    How hard to get parts for it?
    Such as the gasket you mention.

    Shouldn't be too tough. Vintage Ski Doo is big business, lots of parts houses...or make one. Or clean it up, hit it with gasket sealer and away you go.

    I never noticed it till it sat this summer. It's not like it's gushing. Maybe it's just loose bolts...I have not messed with it.

    If I remember correctly, that is the first year of the twin cylinder engine with axial fan, correct?
    I had a new one....

    And another bump. That housing leak is not a leak after all...just normal oil fog from the rubber inspection plugs. It's never been cleaned so the patina is real. ;)
