There are two other major differences between the 1966 and 1967 Rupp Sno
1. The engine on the 1967 is mounted differently with the exhaust coming
in your lap and the carb on the leading side of the machine.
head and piston are reversed to make this happen. Only done in 1967.
2. There are stiffening loop from the side of the chassis
to the foot boards to stiffen the chassis.
will notice they are not on your 1966 Rupp Sno Sport.
Hopes this helps, John
