Title: Back track sprockets
Post by: Roy Johnson on February 01, 2019, 02:01:34 AM
Has anyone had experience in welding the cracked spokes of the drive sprocket. My Cletrac ADH has cracks in two spokes. Cold cast iron weld in situ? Or will it have to come off?
Stories of success welcome.
Cheers Roy Johnson

Cletrac sprockets are cast steel, they can be welded with any steel rod!  6011, 6013 7018 etc.

Thanks Robert, I did the angle grinder test and the sparks were like fireworks suggesting the sprocket was cast iron.
I can see that someone previously has welded these spokes - confusing?
Thanks for the rod info.

I doubt very much if sprockets on these late modern tractors would be cast iron. Perhaps cast steel.
