A bit of historical data

In researching the Muscateer not much information could be found on the web. 

It appers these wer made in 1969 or 1970, no form prodcution numbers, options ro deatails could be found.

In the prior post the brochure from the 6x6 World website was noted.  The complete scanned brochure can be found here.

If anyone has original service manuals or any other documentation on the Muscateer 6x6 ATV, or information on the Muscat Corporation of Forest Lake, MN copies or originals of these documents would be of interest.

As #2146 has the keyed ignition, it appears the unit was originally powered by the optional 10Hp Tecumseh HH100 engine.  It is, as noted, missing.  Mount area shown below.

As with the Muscateer, if anyone has information on the Tecumseh HH100 engine, it would be of interest.

As previously noted, #2146 also was provided the propeller option.  A lever drive cams a belt to power the massive 5 1/2" diameter prop!   Hope we don't lose too many hats!

Massive power!

Cam pulley for belt drive to propeller.

Rudder and cam control cables.
