Powerfab 1200XD Track Sprocket Removal

Post #1 by Dinkytoy1974 » Tue Jul 31, 2018 1:05 am

Hi all. Getting ready to remove one of the hydraulic track motors off my old powerfab 1200 XD minidigger to address an oil leak. Not sure how the drive sprocket is connected to the motor though. Ive attached a pic. Looks like there were originally two cap head allen bolts on the centre hub and one 24mm Hex Bolt. Theres evidence of hammer marks on the centre flange as if its been screwed,unscrewed in the past. As can be seen the photo though the flange, 24mm bolt etc have all been welded to the sprocket. Not sure if this was done originally or retro to prevent it all coming loose ? Any suggestions removal appreciated . Cheers Mark

Hi Mark; what is the other side like has somebody welded the nut on that side as well? My best guess would be to use a small grinder, a die grinder if you have one with a small slitting disc to cut the weld to let you undo the bolt.

Hi Jeremy thanks for reply. Exactly the same except one of the jacking bolts is still intact . Will try grinding off weld on plate/nut and see what comes free.
