I need to double check something. My track sliders have seen better days.
The manual says I can remove the whole assy without having to remove the track and do the dreaded shaft-pull
ie, remove the skid frame and leave the track looped around the drive sprocket?
....is this right? I've never been this deep inside the machine before.

Yep. loosen track and unbolt the 4 bolts holding it in the tunnel. It takes a bit of work but it comes out. Do what you can on it before you install it again. ie bearings or shock bushings.
Best to hang the sled like I posted in you other thread. Jack and plywood under track to let it down.

Easy as hell to remove, but what a bastard to re-install
I have the two front bolts in, but when I lower it a bit, the two rear bolts are about 1" off
Its like I have to jam the entire track FORWARD one inch, but I cant do that now that the two front bolts are in
I noticed the torsion springs have this triangular 3 way cam, can setting that at a different position change things?

Some guys wrap a strap around track to compress it. All I do is tighten track until rear axle lines up to holes in tunnel and install the bolts. Then I adjust track tension as required. It’s real easy this way.

I got it eventually, I tightened the shi# out of it and it just pulled the bolt holes straight down (not left or right)
I un tightened it, lowered it back down and voila! It all lined up....no idea what happened, but I put those bolts in quick before something changed its mind !!
