Thanks I will give them a call. I have not disassembled it yet, but there is no adjustment left in the brake adjuster. It is screwed all the way in. Also, the steering clutches work when pushing. As long as the tracks are spinning while pushing the steering clutches are ok. When you turn, you disengage (or declutch) the steering clutches and tighten the band around the brake drum to stop the track and turn the machine. At least this is how I understand it to work. Someone correct me if I am wrong. I may be looking for the wrong parts.

Your correct on the way a crawler typically steers. That said, like another post stated, if the machine will push and spoin the tracks, and come to a complete stop when the clutches are released, then the chancees of the problem being in the clutch is next to nothing. If your problem is with the machine turning, and the brakes are tightened as tight as they will go and still don't hold the track for you to make a turn then the brake is the problem.

That said, I've never seen a steering clutch setup that didn't have to come out in order to remove the brake band. If the clutches on your machine are hydraulicly released then you'll be money ahead to replace the seals in the release pistons while you have the bands out. Good luck and keep us updated on your progress.

The brakes were worn out. I replaced the entire assembly instead of relining the ones I had. I still have a noise in the transmission/bevel gear area. It is worse in reverse. Also have a noise when I declutch right track. I don"t think the problems are related. I felt of the final drive input bearings and bevel gear bearings when I had the steering clutches out. They did not feel like they had any slack, but could not see them to check for pitting.
