The most common problem attaching photos seems to be that the file size is too large and needs to be edited for size.

Default picture cheat

As i usually take pictures with my iPhone it automatically syncs with my Computor when ever it is close. But to post pictures I have to email them to myself and my phone will ask me what size do i want to send so i pick a medium format and then when i get the same email on my Computor i move that reduced picture to my download file and then attach that file to the MLU post I'm working on..

An image or two will identify which track you have. Not all former Swiss T16ís had modified track. Send me an email, I will get your pictures and post for you.

Images close up of the track would assist, on the upper face of the track links is usually a part number.

On the ex-Swiss T-16 we have at work, it has the narrowed track but the casting on the track links is the usual Canadian part number. Not sure if they are modified track, or if the swiss re-cast them using a Cdn one as the sample.

AFAIK, the Swiss reworked existing track. But would US produced track have a Canadian part number? That would be in indication that the Swiss recast track links using samples from other sources.

Or did Canadian manufacturers supply Ford Motor Co. with track for their T16 production run?
