So you are talking about the extendable/expandable tracks not track adjustment. Found this video that might help. I don't know that the 301.8 is the same but worth checking out. It would be good if it had an operator's manual with it, wouldn't it.:wink:

Found a similar video on youtube with the only difference being that it showed the switch on the left armrest just aft of the joystick. I apologize for not being able to link it.

I should have been more specific, the tracks move in and out hydraulically with a cyl. can't find the lever to do it.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I think the 301.8 and some others of that series have a plate just behind the idler on the side of the frame you have to remove to get to the grease fitting and valve.
