Abstract The Canadian Light Source Inc. (CLSI), opened in 2004 and located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, is a third-generation synchrotron light source facility with a 2.9 GeV storage ring. CLSI was built based on the Saskatchewan Accelerator Laboratory (SAL) with its LINAC. The SAL LINAC was built in 1960s and refurbished to operate at 250 MeV in 2002. It was also de-signed at an average beam power up to 46KW. To be used by CLS, the LINAC was modified for operation at pulse power levels of 25 MW with the current 100 mA. The modified LINAC consists of an electron gun and section 0 to 6, Energy Compression System (ECS) and Section 7. The LINAC has kept a steady performance throughout the years, along with many repairs and replacements ’ most of which are preventative. The original Varian type accelerating Sections are planned to be replaced gradual-ly by SLAC type Sections. Section 3 and 4 are two of the original 3 Varian type sections left in CLS - with over 55 years of service, they were accumulating vacuum leak problems from time to time. The replacement of Section 3 and 4 was completed in 2020. The mechanical consideration of the Section 3 and 4 replacement mainly includes upgrading supporting structures, designing Wave-guides, modifying LCW systems, getting solution to move the sections around in the LINAC tunnel, etc.
