Hi Joshua, Mate you got me stumped there Huh Our fowler VF has manual screw adjusters . I have 2 track marshall 55 s , that followed the VF/VFAs  ,Both with manual adjusters .The last of the55s had hydralic ones  .The grease nipple you are greaseing in the last photo does not have any thing to do with the track adjuster. What my trackmarshalls  have is  a lock nut  and adjusting nut ,the other has a round collar with holes in it ,that you put a bar in to turn it to adjust ..Can you put up a photo of just behind the idler? Ian .

Hi Joshua ,  The tube has the recoil spring in it .No idea why fowler did it that way .If you look at my cat D6 photo ,You can see the recoil spring ,clearly . Do you have books for your fowler?  Are you going out to the old wheels in motion rally at biloela ,17th and 18th of july . Should be out there witjh our fowler and a TD9 if my son has his project back together  by then . . Ian .
