: Does this style of track use a tapered pin?
: AG-6Hguy June 12, 2013, 01:40:46 PM
These are the early 6.375" wide tracks. The inboard ends of the pins on both right and left tracks are tapered for ease of installation. Does anybody out there know if this style track uses pins that are tapered over the full length and are meant to be driven from one side only?
Thanks

What model tractor is that? Do you mean tapered or stepped pins?

I thought I had replied to this last night but it didn't show up. I think these are straight, I'm thinking the K-20 was straight and these are earlier so...

I've never had one apart myself though.

Blake he is talking about the whole pin having a couple degree taper cut on them to hold them in, and if you press them out the wrong way it will ruin the links. It forces the bigger end of the pin thru the smaller hole and then they need welded in or they will fall out.

Here's a pic of the tapered pin end. I hope it stays attached (the pic)
