THE YEAR
OF OUR MILLIONTH
MACHINE
We wish J. Armand Bombardier could be around to see that
millionth machine come off the production line this year. What
would the inventor of the snowmobile think about today's jetage styling? Or the incredible technical advances under the
sleek cowling? We think he'd be amazed and proud.
In this year of the millionth machine, J. Armand Bombardier
would have a lot to be proud about. First of all, a million is an
impressive number of machines. But there's something more
important than quantity. The Ski-Doo" line-up of today reflects
all the experience and know-how gained from the making of a
million machines.
At Bombardier, we've had time to learn all the tricks of
power and flotation. We've found out the pitfalls of operating
an engine in freezing conditions over every conceivable winter
terrain. And our experience shows. It shows in Ski-Doo* styling,
performance and dependability.
n
Another thing our founder wouldn't recognize is the factory.
From its start in a small garage, it's grown into the most advanced
snowmobile factory in the world. Bombardier employs designers,
engineers, specialists and craftsmen by the thousand. They put
every Ski-Doo" through its paces, both in the versatile test laboratory, and on our outdoor speed track.
We've discovered that the best testing ground of all is the race
track. We're in racing not only to win, but to learn. This year,
we've been able to make some pretty impressive technical improvements to all our machines -- improvements made on the track to
hel p you on the trail.
It adds up to a machine you can depend on, all the time. Your
Ski-Doo" will give you excellent performance in all weathers, on
all terrains. Look after it well, and it will serve you well. Your
Ski-Doo dealer is always ready with information, parts and accessories. He is backed up by an international Ski-Doo distributor
and Dealer network whose factory trained personnel are equipped
to give you prompt and efficient service wherever you are in
snow country.
Ride safe ... and have fun!

Warning: Prolonged sitting while riding
over rough terrain may cause kidney

driver or passenger having an existing
back weakness.
Turning.
To snowmobile properly you must learn
to "body english", (using the weight or
position of your body). Shifting to left or
right as the turn demands and keeping
your center of gravity as low as possible
will give you the mark of an experienced
snowmobiler.
MOVing your body weight toward the
front of the vehicle, particulartv in hardpacked snow, adds pressure to the skis
and ski runners so that they bite more
deeply into the snow surface

Ice or extremely hard-packed snow can
be difficult to negotiate as both skis and
track do not have much traction Best
advice IS to slow down and avoid rapid
acceleration or braking.

With Ski-Doo snowmobiles, the oil must
be added to the gasoline in pre-measured
amounts then both oil and gasoline
should be thoroughly mixed together
before fueling the tank.
Which Gasoline to Use
On single cylinder models, the correct
gasoline is regular gasoline, (not less than
92 octane) available from ail service
stations.
On twin cylinder models, the correct
gasoline to be used is premium (not less
than 98 octane)
Caution: ~Jever experiment with other
than recommended fuels or fuel ratios.
Never use no lead gasoline t, naphtha,
methanol or similar products.
'lTests ere oat conclusive enough therefore we
do not recommend the use of no-lead ~olines.
10
Which Oil to Use
Use concentrated Ski-Doo
oil available
from your Ski-Doo dealer. This type of
oil has specially formulated oil bases to
meet the lubrication requirements of the
Bornbardier-Rotax engine.
fuel Mixing Ratio
The importance of using the correct fuel
mixture cannot be overstressed. Prior
experience has shown that an incorrect
fuel ratio results in serious engine damage.
Caution: The carburetors of the Ski-Doo
snowmobile have been calibrated for a
mixture of
lne and concentrated
Ski-Doo oil,
Unless absolutely necessary, do not use
regular snowmobile oil, if such oil is used,
observe mixing instructions on the container. Never use outboard or straight
mineral oils.
Recommended fuel ratio is 50/1.
5 gallons recommended gasoline plus 1
can of Ski-Doo concentrated oil'" correct
fuel mixture.
Note: To facilitate fuel mixing, oil should
be kept at room temperature.
1& IV
Fuel Mixing Procedure
To mix the gasoline and oil always use a
separate clean contamer. Never mix
directly in your snowmobile tank For
best results, acquire two containers, either plastic or metal. Draw from one until empty then use the second one.
Warning: Gasoline is flammable and
explosive under certain conditions.
Always perform procedures in ewell
ventilated area. Do not smoke or allow open flames or spadc:s in the vi·
cinity. If gasoline fumes are noticed
while driving, the cause should be
determined and corrected without
delay, Never add fuel while engine is
running.
1. Pour approximately one gallon of gasoline into a clean container,
2. Add the full amount of concentrated
Ski-Doo oil.
3. Shake the container thoroughly,
4. Add the remainder of the gasoline.
5. Once again thoroughly agitate the
container. Using a funnel with a fine
mesh screen to prevent the entry of water
particles, transfer mixture
and
from
into the snowmobile tank.
Note: When
pre-mixed fuel. always shake the container thoroughly as
the oil has a tendency to settle.
Warning: Nevel' 'top up' gas tank before
placing vehicle in a warm area. At certain
temperatures, gasoline will expand and
overflow.
Fuel consumption
A good idea is for you to rate the fuel
consumption of your snowmobile at the
first opportunity. Starting with a full fuel
tank, mark the time of your departure
then note time elapsed until tank is
half-ful]. Repeat on different occasions
to get a mean average of your snowmobiles' consumption and length of
running time under varying conditions.
