Interesting...  Looks like someone added the clutch vent on the side of the belly pan, but they put it in the wrong spot. 

I haven't focused on my Interceptor heat shield in a few years so I can't say for sure if that is an OEM shield or not. 

Nice looking sled!  Welcome to the site!

Welcome to the site!  First one I have seen with flat slide carbs, wonder how they work on this motor??  Do you know the history of the sled?

Isnít this a 80? And someone had some extra parts laying around and modified it?  81/82 were maroon.  Maybe Iím wrong ?

82 is maroon and this looks black but it's a dark green. By going off the VIN, if the web is right it's a 82. The one on the right is a 82 it's all faded if you take the screens off its maroon underneath.

The tunnel is a 82 for sure , but not belly pan, the vent should be flipped in other direction and to left of that vent.  Maybe someone had few diff sleds and Pieced it together?  How are the exhaust holes cut in belly pan?
