I'm guessing that crud on the table is from that mini water jacket on the fuel tower. When I pulled the tower apart from our 4R D6, it was so packed with dirt and rust that there was no way any coolant was getting into it. Oddly enough, the water jackets around the cylinder sleeves were pristine.

Actually all of that crud came out of the fuel filter housing . It looked like part of the casting at first but a big chunk came out with a screw driver.  I dug out what I could and washed the rest in the parts washer.
There was some stuff in the fuel passage also

Sprockets pressed on and track frames aligned. Equalizer spring going in for repair on Wednesday.

Can't quite make out how many tons you had on the gauge. I put one of my sprockets on at 12 tons. The other has a worn spline so it's just on finger tight until I swap out the center. The sprocket teeth are in good shape but the spline's worn. I did check with the other sprocket to make sure it was the wheel that was worn and not the shaft. Seems weird because the sprocket doesn't seem like it was rebuilt but seems to be less than 50% worn

Cheers,

Agricultural tractors often always turn in the same direction e.g. when ploughing with a 1 way plough which causes more sprocket wear on one side.

Well, what is puzzling to me is why an ostensibly "new" sprocket, the splines already seem worn out. I'm going to pull a sprocket off my parts 4U and see how it compares. It still could be that the shaft is worn but I feel like I checked it adequately (knowing me, I probably didn't and so are consigned to "doing it again..."). This 5U didn't seem to be an ag tractor - the last owner was a landscaper and the unit has a 2S blade on it and the hitch is not worn so I don't think it did a lot of ag work, if any. Under my mgt, it will be doing plenty! : )

Neil my gauge is in BARS scale and my cylinder is rate at 20 tons at 700bars. I went to 400 bars so just over 10 tons. Of the several d2s that I have taken sprockets off of I have never had to press one off. Almost all off them I pulled off by hand and a couple a good wrap with a hammer on the rim was all it took. I can't remember any that had bad splines but if yours was really loose it could acount for the wear. After reading on the forum and watching the Squatch videos and knowing what my tractor will be doing I'm sure 10 tons or so will be fine

I think I have the same press set as mine's in bars too. I'd read that some had split the hub at the regulation 20t so I wasn't interested in going that high. I'll put some paint on it so I can tell if it moves

Yes I got my cylinder and pump on your recommendation. My servicemen book says 15 ton for the sprockets. At 10 tons or so both of my sprockets were just short of the end of the shaft. Due to the taper I'm guessing at 15 tons you would still be shy of the end of the shaft and flush would probably be ok.

I dropped the equalizer spring off yesterday at Pohl spring works in spokane Valley wa. They have a great reputation and seemed very knowledgeable. The fellow actually said I think we've made these before. I had 2 sets of springs for parts and they are going to use what ever is good and make the rest. They're going to leave the spring unpainted so I can paint it yellow. Spring should be done next week. A fellow member has volunteered to help me put the tracks on. With any luck I'll have a rolling frame within a couple of weeks
