TD-14A Bottom Roller

9 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me if a roller with 268306 R1 stamped on the track roller shaft bracket will work in position #1 on my TD-14A? It is single flange but looks more like the one on my TD-14. It was sent to me by mistake & was told to keep it. Now I need a #1 & a #2 roller. When I parked the tractor this morning both rollers were smoking & very hot! I knew something was wrong when I came up my driveway in 1st gear instead of the normal 3rd.

I'm going to put the roller on my TD-14A. Are the bolt hole patterns & roller diameters the same?

I just changed my mind. My crawler doesn't have 3/4" bolt holes! Now I need a single flange roller.

Will TD-14A brackets (p/n 260 997 R1) work on the TD-15 roller so I can install it on my crawler?

have a piece of pipe turned down on a lathe and insert them into the holes to get to the size you need for your 14 bolt hole. double flange rollers can be anywhere but at the back as the sprocket will hit it.

Only difference I know of is Double flange were last roller ahead of sproket and last in front of idler to guide rail Fer hobby cat any one should work. In brush we run Heavy Rock Gaurds to help align things

Good advice from all of you guys---for now I'm set with two proper rollers. I'm just waiting for the mud to dry up a little so the local machinist can get up here to help in their installation.

The Captain is right. I put a double roller on the fornt and it sure helps the tack come off. If it were not for the worn out rock guard It would come right off. I plan to change the fornt roller to a single flange and weld a bunch of leaf spring to the rock guard to keep the track on. The fornt sprocket wiggles so I have a problem there also.
