|July 23/2004 - Latest addition to the
1970 760 JLO FC Mod
It runs now and has a NOS back rest, but
the remainder of the sled needs more than
a tune up.

I have put 30 - 40 miles on this
beast so far this winter. It takes
2 men and a boy to pull it over
but is well worth the effort
when it thunders to life. The
engine will be taken down shortly
and it would be great if all it
needed is crank seals. I am
hoping the whole sled will be
restored for next winter. There
is nothing to indicate this sled
was ever raced.

|Interesting Sled ?
1971 Puma 340Z
Engine Model # T1A Z3
Sled Model # 340 AZ PU
F.C. Kawasaki twin single HD 62A carb, stock
muffler, also provisions for a second impulse line.
|This sled was found by my son, "Darrell", in a sled salvage yard in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
The outward appearance and under the hood glance indicates nothing other than a stock 1971 Puma
340 Kawasaki, the same as I purchased new in 1971. The ID plate indicates something quite
different though. Informed sources tell me this sled was a "Super Stock" limited production and
is quite rare. I had heard of them but had never actually seen one. The motor is modified by
Kawasaki similar to the 1971 EXT, and with pipes and twin carbs will run with or out perform the
FA series. The sled is really in not that bad condition although the crankshaft seems to need some
attention. Needless to say the sled will be kept for restoration.
Sled pulled down
October 2004 -Restoration has
begun, bulkhead and tunnel

more done before spring,
there are lots of other
activities during the winter.
