That's real good work. *respect*More trencher warfare!
Started with draining the chain case oil and finding a 1/2 set screw. It had some trauma in the past. Sprockets misaligned by 7/16". Small sprocket loose on shaft (missing said set screw) sprocket wore .010" oversize the shaft wore down .018".
My son yesterday: Bored the ($150) sprocket oversize, preserving the partial keyway. Made a sleeve then cut a keyway 3/4 of the way thru the sleeve, tig welded it into the sprocket, finished boring it to the shaft size, cutting out the remaining ID which opened up the keyway. We dont have keyway broaches. (He's got skills for a 23 y/o!)

Are those the bestop boards?, They just didn't design them for salt. They were good at sending parts but I finally had to remove mine.Rigid sewer lines on the camper.
And I’m installing some electrical running boards.
No rust on my truck after 13 winters in Alaska. Not so much for those old running boards. Rotten from the inside out.
Believe they were Rhino, I bought the truck used. Never did like the look of them. Happy to have the new ones tuck away.Are those the bestop boards?, They just didn't design them for salt. They were good at sending parts but I finally had to remove mine.
They had "lifetime" warranty and ended up refunding to the dealer I bought them from, then store credit.
I misread! You got rid of the rotted tubes and put electric ones on.Believe they were Rhino, I bought the truck used. Never did like the look of them. Happy to have the new ones tuck away.
Clone car? 69 SS Camaro's came with disc brakes. Sharp car none the less!
