Checking Track Tension
Move vehicle forward and backward several times on level ground, stopping without
Measure distance from top of third roadwheel (third from drive sprocket) to track. If
distance is more than 3/8 inch (0.95 cm) or less than 1/4 inch (0.64 cm), track tension
Increasing Tension Track
Pump grease into clean fitting (2) on track adjuster (1) until correct tension is obtained.
When increasing track tension, do not let track adjuster extend
beyond 3 1/12 inches (8.89 cm) or adjuster will bind in extended
position and will require force to collapse.
If track sag cannot be taken up, decrease track tension,
remove track shoe, and adjust.
