Restore, if you cut the frame, how much do you take out, and how much do you have to lift the frame with the cut made?

933 loader so slid straight out on greased steel plate - front roller was on the ground from frame rail breaking so no need to separate track.

All excess material no structural affect. Around 1" from back of tube at deepest part of cut. Bob

I could envision someone cutting a section of the sprocket and welding it back together to make a shortcut. JM

My cut with no structural effect could also be made to outer frame section leaving in place - so other than getting the track to clear nothing else would need to be done. The section could be welded back in after the fact to hide the change.

That's what I was thinking Bob, maybe a bolt on the backside for easy access next time! : ) I'll inspect my unit when I'm out there next. Sure would be easier than messing around underneath. I'd only do this though if I needed to replace the sprocket before winter. I'm anticipating no more than 50 hours with it on the floppy sprocket before I pull the track frames anyway - would that be enough to damage the shaft splines? I'm assuming the sprocket hub is softer than the shaft.
Now, who has a worn-out sprocket with good splines?

Neil--to take the slop out of my sprocket/shaft a had a large washer machined and installed that between the sprocket and nut and torqued the nut up real tight to take any play up
