Default 1977 TNT 340 F/A track?

Hey guys. I just acquired a '77 TNT 340 F/A with 1,500 miles but the track is pretty bad. The track on the machine measures 16.5" x 116" with 58 windows on each side. The dealer tells me that according to the number stamped on the tunnel ( 343900390 ) it is in fact a '77 TNT 340 F/A but that it uses a 15 x 114" track. I can't even find a SkiDoo in the 70's that ever had a 16.5" x 116" track. Any ideas?

58 windows say it is a 114 in with 1.97 pitch. Is it stretched? I don't remember a 16.5 width in a 114 in track.

I've got 58 windows 2" apart so I figure its 116" long. There's one on ebay from a 1978 TNT that he says is 16 1/2" x 17". I figure he wrapped a string around it and didn't get it just right but its close to 116".

Thanks. That is a cool setup at Kimpex. It says 15 x 114. Mine is definitely 16.5" wide. Just found owners manual online that says 16.5" wide but no length.

I thought there was only 2 tracks for TNT from 1974 to 1979. 16.5 x 124 (everest) and 16.5 x 120. Maybe the short track was 114 in. not 120 in.
Some of those track specs in that Kimpex Catalog are wrong.

Default Are you sure it's a Ski Doo track?

About he same time Rupp was running a 16.5x116 track that was a little more aggressive than the Doo track. Then I had both a 340 F/A and a Nitro II

Perhaps some did a track mod.

Found some numbers molded into this track. My current track has PC 73 and 132706 molded into it. The track is a SkiDoo dated 1976. 16.5 x 116 ?

I'm finding a few 16.5 x 114 tracks out there. My drivers are 3/4 wide. Do I need to be concerned about getting the right width between window side to side or are they all standard? One track had larger windows that I was told is for slide suspensions to allow more snow to the hyfax. My track has small windows but my sled has hyfax.
