    In order to replace a drive motor hydraulic line with a small cut, I tried to slide the track out and found rear link froze. Grease goes in but still won't pivot or slide out. Tried porta power and heat but still won't slide. Front link slides easy.

    Thought I might leave both front and rear retaining bolts a little loose and use machine to see if it pops loose. Is this a good idea or any suggestions??

    Thanks

    Bill

    I took the the zert out and squirting penetrating oil in it for a few more days than I'll try to pull evenly and see what happens.

    I think I used a 10 ton with a short ram on one that was very frozen. Those gator jaws don't have much pushing force.

    Thanks for the input, I will switch to ram attachment today after work and try again.
