If track is too tight:
- 1. Be sure idler can retract. Open access cover and loosen relief valve 1 turn to allow grease to escape.
- 2. Tighten relief valve when adjustment is correct. Close access cover.
Never visually inspect relief valve or fill valve to see if grease is escaping. Always observe track to see if it has loosened.
- 3. Operate Traxcavator back and forth to equalize pressure.
- 4. Recheck adjustment.
If track did not loosen:
- 1. Remove guard and loosen fill valve 1 turn. Operate Traxcavator back and forth.
- 2. Loosen relief valve until it touches guard.
- 3. Loosen fill valve until it touches guard.
- 4. Tighten fill and relief valves, when adjustment is correct.
- 5. Install guard.
NOTE: Contact your AVSpare dealer if correct adjustment cannot be obtained.
