Have a older 69-70...

Have a older 69-70 model jd350 dozer.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Not all rusted up in great shape. One track wasn’t pulling at all so we tried freeing it by hitting a cement block and adjusting the clutch and brakes but no luck. Tracked it into my shop to try later on and after a week I went to pull it out and track is froze solid will move a inch back and forth and I can see the band moving also with that inch motion. What has it locked and what can I do to free it?

But it would roll just fine I drove it in my shop where it was parked for only a week. This gear broke just stuck the track like brakes are locked after a week of sitting? I can understand the not pulling but what froze me in my steps after I parked it? And why is the brake band going the inch back and forth with the track like it’s hung up?
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 3 years ago

Hi

Thank you for the response

My thoughts are when you hit the cement block

it cracked more and then when sitting the broken gear came loose and now when you

try to move it jammed

I suggest opening the case

It tracked just fine least 2000’ to where it’s stored at and parked. That track was in a neutral position the entire time until parked but will open it up.
