<VV> Sno Cat

I strongly suspect that so long as the "winter operation" vent/s are open 
into the engine compartment, there will not be an icing problem.  They are 
there to admit warm air to the top side of the engine.

These cars were tested in severe extremes before they ever went to market. 
Also, I question whether the size of jetting will have any effect at all if 
conditions are ripe for icing.  What size jets does the sno cat have now? 
Has icing been a problem?  If so - find a way to send more warm air to the 

I cannot "prove" any of this from study or experience, just my gut feel on 
this topic.

Later, JR
