    well, of course we tried that--it just keeps coming off. Opener is about 6 months old and was working fine at 2 pm to open. At 4 pm it closed and then reopened immediately and neither the remote or base opener would work.

Polaris snowmobile..chain broke. And the spike things broke. Bought a new chain case..i put it on and my track is locked up and wont move.. ne ideas please.. asap

Dear Danny,
Sorry about that.
Unfortunately, sometimes the obvious is not the problem.
You, or someone, must take apart the whole track and look inside, because I think the problem in internal.
Something broke or wore out inside, causing the chain to break and the sprocket gears to fail.
God bless your efforts.

2005 jeep grand cherokee window problem

Try to find one at a salvage yard. Is the rubber track piece supposed to be held on by glue? You might try a good adhesive to make the old track piece stay on.

Chainsaw's chain keeps on getting out of its track. Please help with ways to fix it.

With the saw not running (and wearing a glove) try pulling the on the chain towards the end of the bar. If it feels rough then either the chain or the bar may be damaged. Try taking the chain off of the bar and using a bent piece of wire or large paper clip, clean the track of the bar of any wood deposits. Also check the sprocket on the end of the bar to make sure it tuns freely. If all these areas are clear then try another chain if available. If the problem still exists then the bar may be worn to one side which sometimes can be filed back in shape by a shop where chains are sharpened.

Easy way to change the rubber track?

Only one way to change the track. Unspring the rear suspension springs, pull the four suspension bolts, lay the machine on it's side with the chain case up, yank out the suspension, open the chain case and unbolt the gears, lift out the gears and chain, unbolt the drive bearings on each side, pull out the drive axle the track will come with it. Be sure to replace the drive axle bearings you take out or you will have to go through the whole procedure to replace the bearings later. While the suspension is out take any joint or suspension axle apart clean and re grease it. Also, check all your bogie wheel bearings and spacers . Replace any worn , broken, or damaged bearings and plastic slider parts. When you go to put the suspension back in, measure the distance between the frame mounting holes. Use a tie down strap to hold the rear suspension a-arm cross tubes at the measured distance of the mounting holes. When you drop the suspension back into the track loop now the tunnel holes will line up with the threaded holes.

I have a New Bright caterpillar(1985 vintage) "The Cat 245", and I am looking for the rubber tracks. The cat works, but the rubber tracks are broken. Looking for a company that makes tracks for...

I got the same problem with tracked toys. They seem to stop producing those tracks, what I did is to buy a new set of tracks from a model kit store, usually tracks from a 1/25 scale model kit battle tank. You could buy the accessory tracks from the hobby store and bring your old one to comape it.

Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Need to find replacement for broken belt/track.

Belts for cleated tracks are no longer available from arctic cat. You will have to find a used belt on EBAY, at a salvage yard, or upgrade to a rubber track. An Arctic dealer can look up pieces needed to upgrade to rubber track from the old accessory parts listing to do the upgrade. You will need to replace your drive sprockets and possibly the drive axle to run a rubber track with out cleats.

The chain came off the track. When I put it back on it doesn't cut well. It seems like it's just grinding into the wood instead of cutting.

For a chain to come off the track it must be MUCH too loose. The chain should run tight on the track and not hang free at all. As it has been running loose it may well be damaged - and therefore more dangerous than a healthy chain. If I were you, I'd get it checked out professionally. Don't keep trying to use it, as it will overheat and probably damage the track as well.

Kubota mini digger KX36-2: changing rubber tracks

Undo the nut the nipple fits onto ,thats the valve itself.
Then lift up the machine with the arm over the side that the tracks off  about 2 - 3 foot  so it helps the track to go in and on and start putting the track on at the sprocket end first.
When you get the track to the idler end it will push the grease out as it rolls on or you can lever it home with a big bar before tracking up .

POULAN CHAIN SAW MODEL 1420 ''Chain came off track

Chain is probably stretched. SAFETY FIRST. Electric saw, make sure power is unplugged. Gas saw, make sure sparkplug wire is removed. Remove the cover where the bar is attached to the saw. U should see an adjustment screw for chain tension and one or more bar lockdown screws. Loosen the lockdown screws and turn the tension adjustment screw to permit the bar to slide back toward the motor. Put the chain back in the bar track all the way around. Adjust the tension screw to tighten chain enough you can't pull it out of the track at any spot. Slide the chain by hand at least one complete revolution feeling for any rough spots. If it moves freely, turn the tension screw enough to tighten the chain properly. Correct tension should allow you to pull the chain appx. 1/16 to 1/8 inch from the bar. Tighten the lockdown screws, replace the cover. Rotate chain by hand a couple of revolutions again to check for smoothness again before starting the saw.
