If you look on the top of the track frame covers and guards you will see near the top idler an access cover that you remove or open to access the grease fitting and release fitting to adjust your track tension. You will pump grease into the fitting to tighten track tension and you will loosen up the relief fitting to let grease out to loosen your track. Reply back if you need any further help with this and I will be glad to help. We can follow up as needed on here.

Thank you I did find the grease under the cover on the top of the track frame. However, this fitting looks very different than a typical grease fitting. Can I upload to you a picture of the fitting?What kind of grease fitting is this and can I buy a grease gun end attachment that will work on this different grease fitting?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 years ago

That fitting has a grease fitting on the end of it so you would use a regular grease gun but the whole cartridge is actually a valve that will release track pressure when loosened. So if you look on the end of it there is a grease fitting that should use a standard grease gun. But the main cartridge with the larger hex nut around it is what you can loosened with a larger wrench to let grease out quicker to loosen the tracks if you needed to.
