I did as the man who had delivered the Cheetah had said and flipped up the lever on the dash to give the sled some choke. Once I began to get comfortable, the realization set in that I actually was enjoying the wind buffeting my helmet and the sun making the snow sparkle like a diamond encrusted moonscape. When I made contact through Craigslist the person that had placed the ad seemed pretty interested.

. I always smile when I think of that time in my life and all that I learned taming the Cheetah. The skis were rotted and mangled, the tunnel bashed, the windshield broken, the seat was completely missing, and so were many of the primary clutch parts. Tachs, trims, hoods, tunnels, motor plates, brakes, dashboards, drivers, cleats, coils, ignition, bumpers, manuals, shocks, skis, windshields and so much more. I decided I would take the sled down to the lake where it was flat so that I could just get a feel for how to operate this beast.
I was starting to get concerned about how I was going to pay my remaining debt. These are quality pistons that will work great in any application. As an example, I used a faded photo of the Sears sitting in our barn. I waited until the first weekend of vacation was over and picked a day in the middle of the week to try my hand at snowmobiling. Eventually some guy corrals the canines and comes out to show me the sled. This, in addition to extensive research, is how Clymer repair manuals achieve an unmatched level of detail, accuracy and clarity to guide the reader through each service, troubleshooting and repair procedure.
When I looked at the ad I noticed one of the pictures was of an old, blue Sears 309. This is a quality piston that will work great in any application. If you do not wait for this invoice and pay for the items then they will be shipped separately and no combined shipping discounts will be given. Those products will resume this summer. I was able to find a snowmobile safety manual, talk to the officers on duty and I learned that a snowmobile should never be operated on less than six inches of ice, that ice depth should always be tested in several places prior to going out onto any frozen body of water, that slush and soft spots around the shoreline and around any pressure ridges or cracks are to be avoided. Since everyone else was packing up or leaving we made a panic trip around the field and came across a couple guys standing by their trailer looking a little frustrated.
Additionally, our products are thicker and stronger than the competitors' products. I began to make regular practice runs, never going too far, never exceeding my comfort zone and always focusing on safe riding technique. I reluctantly commenced tugging on the chrome plated rear bumper and together we dragged the machine out of the truck and down the backside of the snow bank. Still had the original Polaris secondary clutch, but of course that was seized firmly onto the jack shaft. A red pickup truck pock marked with a shotgun blast of rust holes was backed up to a nearby snow bank.
The snow on the lake was windblown, the peaks and valleys whipped like meringue on a pie. This presented a problem; I was at the A1 show, I had an empty trailer and I had cash in my pocket. I eased the throttle lever toward the handlebar and off I went. It ended up being being a great story and a lot of fun to be part of it. This is the story of P8841, a 1969 Sears 309. Please read the entire listing and make sure that it will fit your specific application before buying. Normally this is where the story would end.
I cited the righteous pursuit of keeping the air clean and the snow free of petroleum pollutants as the reason behind my refusal to accept the Cheetah, but the simple fact was that I was scared. I learned the importance of wearing the proper protective equipment, and used the money I had saved from my paper route to purchase a purple metal flake helmet. Afraid of dying, intimidated by a machine that promised dismemberment if operated incorrectly, and petrified of the guilt I would feel if something terrible happened while carrying one of my siblings as a passenger.
