Td15c right track needs tightening


Recommended Posts

Bought it from heavy duty mechanic who said that it needs grease behind front idler    Thee is a cover with two bolts that u remove and grease it.  Hi did that but it didn’t tighten the track.    Any suggestions.

If the zerk fitting is not working properly ,,either bound up or leaking it wont work.

also make sure the bolt/valve is tight when pumping grease in

If all is well with fitting and valve Mike gave you the answer

What does it mean to makes sure bolt valve is tight

Cant remember on the 15 if the bleed valve is a hex head right next to the zerk for adding grease OR if the bleed valve

has the zerk threaded into the bleed valve (someone here may remember) 

Either way the zerk has to take grease and not leak and the bleed valve needs to be tight

Nope the bleed valve should be closed tight to add grease ( you only open it to bleed the grease out to loosen track )

I was thinking maybe someone loosened it and forgot to tighten it back up ?

grease would surely come out of a relief valve if not closed properly?  and therefore make a visible mess

Is there visible grease oozing out as you pump?
