New rollers and sprocket

What a day!  Beautiful and cold means no mud, which is great as I went back to work on the machine.  Today I installed the new bottom rollers and sprocket.  Plenty of “never-seize” and new bolts torqued to Caterpillar’s spec’s. 175 ft lbs to be exact on the bottom rollers and 199 ft lbs for the sprocket bolts.  Ready to roll! (-:  Well almost. The next step is to remove the upper carrier roller. It requires a large impact socket, which I had to order from Brian at NAPA.  Next I’ll be removing the track adjusting cylinder and rebuilding it while I await the arrival of more parts.IMG_20160303_151734 (1)
