Victoria University Antarctic Research Expedition Science and Logistics Reports 1967-68: VUWAE 12

Repairs Made:

Repairs Made:

  • 1 Ski replaced.
  • 1 Clutch replaced
  • 2 drive belts
  • 1 Track runner temporarily repaired
  • 2 Carburettors replaced
  • 1 Fuel pump
  • 2 Throttle cables
  • 12 Throttle linkages replaced
  • 1 pivot bush replaced.

The perspec windscreens again proved inadequate and I feel a heavier material would be much better.

One toboggan had to be replaced on re-supply due to sheering of a drive gear which could not be repaired in the field. I feel it is essential that someone with mechanical knowledge should accompany these parties.
