no hydro

Recommended Posts


Could be something external in the linkage or even in the frame froze up? Crazier stuff has happened. I have found my hydros to act sluggish when cold, but -10 or +20....seems to be the same sluggishness until the fluid gets moving.

Ice would be possible though. The belt creates heat to melt snow dust, and then with the cold snap, things may have been cool enough to turn snow dust from the blower to water then to ice.

We used to battle that when snowmobiling in subzero temps. Engine and exhaust heat would melt snowdust and the settling water would then freeze in the worst places....throttle linkages, air breather, electrical connectors, you name it.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
