I bought a 763 bobcat...
I bought a 763 bobcat and it runs great but when you started it wants to automatically pull to one side you always have to have one of the controls in your hand with pressure on it. What is the procedure to adjust so when I start the bobcat it does not move and everything is aligned correctly

Where is the serial number plate located
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 3 years ago

The serial number plate typically is located on the right-hand rear of the operators cab just below the lift arms.

Be sure to identify and repair any loose or worn out linkage to get the best and proper adjustment.

Raise the cab in the service position. Notice the two long link bars that connect the drive lever traverse rod to the pintle arms on the drive pumps. Notice about halfway of those two link bars are two 3/8 bolts/nuts in slotted holes. On the bar that operates the left drive lever put a sharpie mark on the bar about 1/8" from where the two bar halves join. Loosen the two bolts/nuts on the left drive bar. Now pull the left drive lever back until the mark you made on the front bar meets up with the rear bar, lock the bolts down. This will make the left drive lever pull the pintle arm on the pump an additional 1/8". Drive the machine and check if it now drives straight at full stick. If not, make additional adjustment.

Make a mark at (1) in the pic on front bar. Loosen bolts (2)
