• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

Does anyone know where to buy this tool?? The part # is PN 2870962. My local Polaris guy said it is no longer available. I've looked online and have not had any luck yet. It looks like a socket - open on both sides. One side is used to get that U seal in place without damaging it. The other open end is used to press the outer seal/metal band down into place. I've already damaged 3 U seals.

I'd imagine one comes across ebay now and then, or I'm sure some Polaris dealers still have one. Stuff for older sleds is pretty hit or miss (more miss than hit), and I doubt you'll find it stocked by anyone. ebay is probably your best bet, although nothing comes up at the moment...

Found this thread. It gives dimensions of tool in post #18 & 19 so if you know a machinist you may have to make one. https://www.polarisatvforums.com/threads/brake-master-cylinder-piston-install-tool.51766/
