M7 Snow Tractor Ski Help Please

Post by Poniatowski » Tue May 07, 2019 8:13 am

Hello all,

I've started work on my restoration of our AC M7 snow tractor. However, I'm missing not only the outer windshield frame (tubular construction), but the skis as well. If somebody owns original M7 skis, would it be possible for you to send the ski dimensions to me? I know the basics, 70 inches long, etc, but the front and rear curve contour upward as well as the wheel 'indent' are things I need measurements for.
Also, the ski mounts and brackets. If you could measure them as well? I've attached a jpeg for measurements. Fill in what is needed. Y'don't have to go nuts. (steel thickness is helpful too!)

Thank you in advance.
Is there an M7 owner who would be willing to be my 'go to' person for measurements? I have the basics all set, but from time to time, I might need to know a bracket location or similar.
