    Jim, here is a picture of the head
    The bolt holes are roughly 21/2" X 2 11/16"
    As you can see the cooling fine are straight, snow machine are angled.

    Good information. I don't remember my mod 3 SN but it had the side rail mounts.

    I'm pretty sure that's a model 1 mount, it has the cowl mounts

    I have used 105 gun solvent/cleaner w/poly on the 4 kit fox and 1 avid with good results.
    I used the blush retarder on two of them but didn't see a difference.
    I ask several shops what they use and they said 105. 1/3 the cost and not as deadly.

    brake rotors
    I will be needing a pair of brake rotors that are for the old Douglas 8" wheels
    I could also use a set of the wheels that have the rotor lugs welded in

    The exhaust came from  Rotax Rick and wasn't even close to fitting.
    I had to turn the down pipe 90 deg, while keeping every thing the same length and diameter
    and slightly change the down angle,
    I understand he now has an exhaust that is supposed to fit????
    In the picture the exhaust is in the cowl
