    How do I get this pin back in? Do I need to take the track off? Do I need to lift it?

    You need to take the entire track frame off and pop it back in the torsion axle, then weld the bugger back. How ever that happened, it must have been a great battle!

    Thanks guys. Keep the ideas coming. I don't beat on it. It was a case of perfect angle and pressure. Popped right out. I'm in the process now of gathering up all the required tools. I just bought a 10ton Lincoln air/hydraulic jack and a couple 7 ton Hein-Werner jack stands. This is a first for me and I'm actually looking forward to the task. While I'm in there I plan on freeing up the front axle zerk and repacking it and giving the whole side a good cleaning.

    Mass consumption of alcoholic beverages might be refreshing after such a painful task.

    If its not something I can do I can tow it to someone who can. I'll give it a shot first and see how far I can go.
