That is the track information unless you have the XTRA suspension
The upper sprocket nut torques to 50 ft lbs.
I'm looking up the lower bolt specs now.
I'm showing 19 ft lbs on the lower bolt.

just wonderin bout the tighteness of the track 1/2 inch play hanging down they mean
and the upper sprocket is a big bolt with a cotter pin going through it that one is fifty u say and the bottom one is 19 is this correct
The upper one should be a castle nut with a cotter key. It torques to 50 ft lbs.
The track slack is measured with a force of 10 lbs on it. I grabbed the wrong diagram
Double check the track alignment after setting the tension.
k and the bottom sproket is 19 lbs
how do u check track alignment
Raise the rear of the sled in the air and run the motor. Rev it up so the track turns, then shut it off. Do not hit the brake. Measure from the edge of the track to the outer rear wheel on each side.
If it isn't the same, tighten on or the other adjuster to align it. If the track is too far to the right, tighten the right adjuster. That will move the track to the left.
ok and then adjust rear wheels as needed gotcha
If it isn't the same tighten ONE or the other adjuster. Typo there!
Once it's lined up, double check your track tension, then make sure all nuts and bolts are tight and you are done.
ok i think thats all i need if i dont have a torque wrench how should i do it or should i go get one
You can usually rent one for a few bucks from an auto parts store. I know Checker and Advanced rent them.
They can be expensive to buy if you are only going to use it once.
