Stripping down the wreck update
« on: September 16, 2018, 12:36:54 PM »
Hard work on Saturday but I think very productive.

Last sprocket off, the remaining track off and the axle out. Amazingly all the nuts unfastened, sadly taking the front axle off will not be so easy especially as we are out of oxygen so will have to get a new bottle before we can heat up the nuts to get the front axle out. Still plenty more to do at the back first, idlers off and top rollers for a start.

We even got to tidy up a bit which was nice!

Also a nice little surprise inside the track, sadly it's too cracked to use but it was nice to find a makers mark inside it.

Well Done,
 I have tons of drivetrain parts. Great winter deals on bearing / seal kits, brake, exhaust, etc.
