INSPECT/ADJUST TRACKS Continued
Measure track shoe wear with track installed and under normal tension.
Measure track shoe bushing wear by inserting two pins of profile gauge into the bushing housings of two track shoes. If
the pins can be inserted at the shortest distance, the bushings are OK. If the pins dont line up with housings, see task:
REMOVE/ INSTALL TRACK SHOE (WP 0060 00).
START ENGINE (WP 0013 00) (WP 0014 00).
Drive carrier slowly to firm level ground (WP 0020 00), (WP 0021 00).
Loss of control at speeds above 5 mph (8 kph) could cause vehicle to crash. Do not shift to SL
(Steering Lock) position at speeds above 5 mph (8 kph).
Let carrier coast to a stop. Do not use steering wheel or press brake pedal to stop carrier. Place transmission controller in
SL (Steering Lock) position to coast to a stop.
STOP ENGINE (WP 0023 00) (WP 0024 00).
Either drive pin punch or profile gauge may be used to check track tension. If using drive pin
punch, do Step 8 and Step 9. If using profile gauge, do Step 10 and Step 11.
Check track tension by using drive pin punch. Insert drive pin punch between top of number two road wheel and bottom
of track. If drive pin punch can be inserted freely and track touches top of number three road wheel, track tension is
