Hi guys, I'm replacing the track on my '89 Safari Scout and the holes on the new track are not spaced the same as on the old one. There's 1/2 in difference so I need to move both drive sprockets inward 1/4 in.

Has anyone done this without a press? The shaft is the old hex type and heavily pitted so I plan to file/sand/grind it a bit to help the sprockets slide. My plan is to use a pipe and heavy hammer... think this might work?

Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I did some on a Tundra 2 last year, took them up to a shop up the road and he let me use their big press. I was very surprised at how easy they were to remove and install. So easy that I am sure it can be done easily without a press. I am sure you will be fine.

I have heard that some fancy blocking to a wood splitter will work also.

I use the tailstock of a big old lathe to press them on.
