Hi guys.

I'm missing two guide lugs on one track of a MT855B. I see there's replacement bolt on ones available.

The track is in good shape otherwise and has probably 65-70% tread left.

Haven't had to touch the tracks on this unit yet and just wondering what my options are?

Looking at your tracks you should bolt all the blocks on before you lose more they are cracking. Here in the steep hills of eastern Washington its a commen practice bolt even new tracks. There is special glue you use when putting on new blocks . It better to bolt the blocks rather then replace a block after it falls off.

Thanks onionfarmer.

I'm sure this track had the guide blocks damaged when I had the track partially walk off the drive wheel on a sidehill. I'll look into bolting the rest of the lugs and putting two new ones on.

sorry to jump in here but are they a bxxstard to drill? i have no end of rough looking ones and missing ones on mine and planning to put some new lugs on but if i could save some of the old ones that would be ideal.

Its is not a easy job with the right drill. we made a guide so you lay it on the track and it makes sure the block are in the right place. A guy that's done it has the right tools can do on e in 10 to 12 hours .
