First, THANKS GUYS!!!!

OK, one should always consider heavily the advise of those who have done it before... Currently I can lift the machine. I have the front idler retracted ( this is a small machine kinda like a John Deere 1010 & short track with decent pins may be whats making it so tough?) I gave up for today, I'm getting old to be wrestling with tracks... I was cutting a swale & hit some rocks at a good sidehill tilt. The track that came off is thankfully on the uphill/easy to get to side. With the front idler retracted & a come-a-long pulling back on the top of the track there just ain't enough slack to pry it over the sprocket. Possibly I should be trying to pry it over the idler? Currently it's setting with the track on the front idler & lined up on the top & front 3 bottom rolls. Track off to the outside of the rear roll. Track pads resting on the sprocket/chain to the outside of the sprocket... I probably should be trying to pry it onto the idler? I think as I sit here catching my breath I may have answered my own question? Any helpful hints at trying to pry the track onto the idler from top or bottom? I'm thinking taking the track off the bottom of the idler, putting it fully on the rear sprocket, maybe lift the machine & try turning the tracks forward with the machine raised & MAYBE the track will roll into place on the front idler & with the machine dangling in the air as it rolls onto the front idler the bottom rolls will fall into place? Or should I avoid looking for help from the machine drive & just pry the track back on the idler by hand? I think I wrongly started with trying to put the track chain back on the sprocket cause that where it fell off & the track was on the front idler perfect.... Any helpful hints from having been there done that?
