  1. And the currently received arms with same pn: 2703-464 that were “on back order” are still the batch not updated according to local dealer near me, (they just received their notice of this yesterday)

  2. Yes the fix is just a bracket with a bolt thru it, I got excited at first thinking new a-arms would be great, but nah, just an ugly cheezy lookin bracket after thought, but functional bracket! Hey Kudos for at least acknowledging the problem! Sad part is dealers only get paid .2hrs for the repair, (@ labor rate of $90/hr) thats a whole $18. Hardly worth anwering all the calls, taking all the sleds in, loading unloading, storing, doing the work, and paperwork for a whole $18. I think cat could of at least made it worth the dealers time, IMO .2hrs is a losing propostion,.3 or .4 would of been fair! But what do I know.

  3. Joe, that’s good to know (in a way anyhows),, the funky bracket will look goofy,, Come on Cat! Pull your heads outta’ ____ _____! The underhood fix of the firecats was bad enough,, this will look like s__t!

    CJR,, I agree with the .2 hrs condemnation,, wty coverage from any mfr is ridiculously low pay out to dealers imo.

  4. Guys, let me retract a large portion of my former statement,, the bracket although not oem standard looking, is one heck of a lot more trim and less noticeable and better looking than the firecat stering post debacle of a fix from yrs gone by I must say

  5. it is a low pay, .3 to be exact. but they dont factor in the person that had his sled sitting outside and the snow and ice froze up in that area. you got to get it all broken out before installing the bracket.

  6. What a fascinating lady you are! Just full of srperisus! I actually heard all about the conference and the frozen polar bear sculpture on CBC radio the other day. The melting bear, of course, symbolizes global warming. Will you show us a picture of the polar bear skeleton made of bronze inside the ice when it melts?Keep feeding us with little bits of yourself!Bella http://lflncwg.com [url=http://pupbrtsa.com]pupbrtsa[/url] [link=http://ztixor.com]ztixor[/link]

  7. it all depends on your alorge-ithm. So, it should be legal to make one that simply doubles the numbers of NSIDC post Y2K, and we can solve this whole Arctic collapse thing. http://immxhtjoaq.com [url=http://wlubqmdmst.com]wlubqmdmst[/url] [link=http://sscdoo.com]sscdoo[/link]

  8. More ice in Spring due to slow start to the melt season, more ice in Summer due to cool temps and less sunny days would be my summray.Andy

  11. Well more in terms of keeping my inrteest up. šŸ˜‰ Science GCSE’s were at the time amongst the most tedious, badly put together courses in history. The whole Chemistry course was actually scientifically wrong and did a 180 at A-Level. Didn’t help either that the answers in exams were (hilariously) politically vetted- so any answer, even if right, might be on the political ‘wrong’ list and therefore lead to you failing that question.If we were really lucky it wouldn’t be alt history but reality…We can but dream. http://hlxhlacs.com [url=http://gjampomz.com]gjampomz[/url] [link=http://qtazvrijzrs.com]qtazvrijzrs[/link]
