Just came back from the shop. The threads on the bolts on the one pad are wore out good. So i will be replacing them. I just happened to find four bolts and nuts in the parts room.

The other pad I put a cheater pipe on a socket and tightened those ones up.

I just have to figure out a way to get the old bolts off the bad pad. I dont have torches so might be spending an hour or so with the grinder.

Did you use track bolts? You don't just put a snipe on a wrench and use standard bolts. You tighten to a lower torque (for the size of bolt) and then turn them an additional 1/4 to 1/2 a turn for proper final torque. A dealer or undercarriage shop will have the proper torque specs. Someone on here that does undercarriage probably knows as well.

Where are you located? I have a bunch of used track bolts and nuts if you want, for the cost of shipping. I also have some tall tanks, 100' of hoses and cutting torches I'd sell ya, at a fair, in Southern Cal.
