Remove the six carrier mounting bolts (Item 2) [Figure 40-20-20] from inside the chaincase.
Installation: Tighten the motor carrier mounting bolts to 125 – 140 ft.-lb. (170 – 190 N•m) torque.
Tip the end of the sprocket on the motor carrier toward the rear of the loader and remove the rear drive chain from the sprocket.
NOTE:It may be necessary to tie the front drive chain up as shown in photo [Figure 40-20-21], so the carrier/motor assembly can be moved enough to free the rear drive chain (Item 1) [Figure 40-20-21] from the sprocket.
Remove the front drive chain from the chaincase.
The tool listed is needed for the following procedure:
MEL1037 – Chain Link Tool
Installation: If a new chain is installed, a connector link must be used to connect the chain together.
Use MEL1037 Chain Link Tool and #80 chain adapter.
Secure the tool and place the connector link in the tool as shown [Figure 40-20-22].
Turn the threaded rod of the tool and press the connector link together on the chain [Figure 40-20-22]. Tighten the threaded rod of the chain link tool to 130 ft.-lb. (176 N•m) torque.
