I tried to post a couple mins ago, but the comp froze. Trying again, sorry if it duplicates.

Hi Cletrac, I sold the dozer last week. It ran good, had the head rebuilt, and reverser worked great. Also steered great.

Track is on backwards, not sure how that happened, but seemed right after beer number 4. My wife says I sleepwalk now, and maybe that's when it happened :).

What everyone is saying is 100 percent true. Chain is most important, and this one was pretty worn. Still had some life, but new pins and bushings are needed in a couple hundred hours of heavy use.
I think the rollers, idlers, and frames are just as important as the chain. Proper alignment, tension, and sprockets are also important. If you look at another one, let us know so we can comment. I've gotten way too much in crawlers before, and it still required a couple thousand to make nice.
I try to tell anyone who calls what is wrong with it so no one is disappointed when they arrive.

I'm working on a 420 4 roller inside aftermarket blade, and it should be done in 2 weeks or so. I have 2 440 loaders to get ride of as well. Too many toys to restore to keep them all.

Besides nothing like taking something that has been dead for 30 years in a fence row and getting it to fire and run.

Any questions, please let me know

Andrew - crazy guy with all the crawlers
