After the idler is pushed all the way back into the frame.try to put some wood blocks under the track to remove all the slack.use the bucket to push as much of the bottom section under the bottom rollers.use a heavy chain and pull up and over the top of the roller.when you get close you can use the drive to walk it the rest of the way.if it still doesnt go you may have to break the track at the master pin. this is usually marked with a small hole drilled in the end of the pin.heat and beat the pin out,break the track.pull track over top rollers and make ends meet on top of the srocket.use a chainfall to pull two halfs together and line them pin back in and your all set.

Here is a solution for getting a track hoe track back on. 1)You can use the bucket to lift the track over the middle wheels (use chains with hooks). 2)Next, you need to use the bucket (push down on the ground) like a crutch and walk the tracks in one direction. Push the bucket up slightly until you start to get friction with the ground. The ground will cause the track that is off to begin to spin. 3)Moving in the direction will push the track towards the teeth. The teeth will begin to catch. 4)If you run out of room, walk the track hoe in the opposite direction, make sure you bucket down on the ground when going in the opposite direction to keep the position off the off track from sliding. 5)Repeat the process until the teeth finally catch.

Back out the adjuster all the way, u may have to remove the greese fitting and pry the idler wheel back as far as u can. it helps to have a front blad to lift it up far enough and the boom to lift the other side. i had to pry it as close as i could, get it back on the sprocket then used comealongs to pull it across the front while prying back over the pullys. not fun and its nice to have help, i didnt

How do I tilt the cab back to get access to the pipes under my JCB 2007 8014

Yes it tilts to about 20 degrees.

At the front on the cab / canopy is two large mouting bolts. You undo these but first you need to sort out the aux pedals and the dirt cover that goes over them.

I think thats some hex bolts. Once that is off you can unclip the pedals and then undo the main bolts and the cab will hinge backwards.

Its a one man job until you need to put it back down as you need to relocate the slew lock.

You may have to unclip the tracking levers in the middle of all of that but there only on small clips so its easy to do.

The hinge locks in place so you will have to unclip it for it to return back down.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Do I have to split the track to install new bottom rollers on my E70B?

If you remove the plug for the grease cylinder on the idler arm and squeeze out the grease manually by pushing the pulley wheel in, you can relates enough tension on the track to sag it down and maybe remove rollers. Or you can remove the track this way with a little manual labor without splitting it.

Hi, The track of a JCB JS130 has just come of at one end of itself and I am wondering if it is not to hard to re-track it myself. Any tips?

most tracks are put back on by laying out the track and attaching one end to the drive sprocket and slowly driving along the track until you only have to lift one or two tread plates to get the pin back in. Make sure the adjuster is let well off before hand
