I will look at my 91 brochure tonight and let you know what it says. Should be the 440 fan single carb at about 45 hp, but I will check it out for ya.

If it jams force it...
If it breaks it needed replacing anyway!

My mistake, the jags were the fans. Brochure does not list HP but it does list the rest of the specs.

440 liquid
2 VM 34mm carbs
37" ski stance
16x156 track
9 gal tank
7" front travel
5.5" rear travel

I would tear down the front suspension and regrease everything. There are bound to be some cracked bushings in there. My 91 Jag would need a new one or two every two years. You can get at the suspension bolts under the motor if you take off the recoil housing first and squeeze your arm in there. Also rebuild the clutches to pick up the mileage and get some snap back into the throttle. 4000 miles on those comets is all you can ask for. MPG estimate IMO will be around 15.

Bros in law has the Jag 440 LT,same basic sled but with fan and 151 track

His dad has the Cheetah 440LC 91 or 92 156 track

only problems that I am aware of is the jackshaft and gearbox

the rest is just your basic clutch maintenance,carb cleaning etc

get wide ski skins as they are tippy in deep snow

My Uncle had the 90 Cheetah it was the same(156,reverse,2spd) but had the 500 HO fan
