One track being looser won't make it pull to one side. The sprockets should still be turning at the same RPM. The crown on the road, maybe one brake slightly dragging or more dirt packed on one side might cause it to not track in a straight line but just a looser track on one side won't cause it. If one track/sprocket is worn more might cause it though.

Your opinion of track tension is kind of what I'm thinking. The tracks are squeaky clean. Never been in mud since I restored it last year. Only reasoning I can come up with concerning track tension is if one is a lot tighter and it pulls a little harder. If I drive up the center of the road it pulls to the right and even driving left of center it will still pull right a bit if the slope to the left isn't much. This beast sat for maybe 15 years before I got to working on it so I obviously don't know how it drove before it was parked. The brakes run in oil so to steer it I have to pull on the lever with two hands to get any action and then a few seconds later it steers easy as the oil in the brake gets hot. It uses 50w non-synthetic oil in the transaxle. If it had synthetic oil in the tranny steering would be next to impossible. Jim
