    is it possible to damage a seal when removing the sprocket? i just had the new cage installed and it now has a leak when it sits for a day they may have heated it? also any good leads on replacement tracks

    Heat will damage the seal. :nono: I used the puller and two chisels behind the sprocket. Checkout ebay for tracks - beast deal I've seen.

    Metro Fluid Power is a bogus internet scam. Don't order anything, you'll never get it. The address is a UPS drop box.

    They have more than one location in MI and maybe Ok but I can't get thru on phone. I asked my credit card company to check this out.

    I was wondering if you ever got the motor from Metro Fluid Power.

    By the time I did hear back from metro power fluids I had found a NOS Eaton motor on the internet. I ended up buying that motor for $400 and took my old motor apart and replaced the output shaft bearings for $40 and now have that one as a spare.

    Subscribing. This thread is a great source of info. I'm neck deep in my '06 right now searching out a hydraulic leak that left it unmovable - looks to be a popped clamp on the larger draw line. Will be trying the grease fitting trick on the eight front and rear bogeys too since they are the only ones to show any wear at 400 hrs.

    Can I ask what type of fuel capacity you all are finding? I can't get more than about three gallons at a time into this tank. I pulled it out to get at the lines and it looks like the filler neck comes in over halfway down the side...

    Here are some Eaton Char-Lynn numbers:

    Seal Kit number: 61344-000 $26.65

    Output Shaft 32mm or 1 inch Tappered with Key way $331.00


    This seems quite cheap to me, where/who these prices from sshklov?
