TRACK TENSION ADJUSTMENT - Continued
If the track is more than 2 inches (5.1 cm) above the top of No. 4 roadwheel, loosen the track by moving the
track loosening switch.
If the track is less than 1-1/4 inches (3.2 cm) from the top of No. 4 roadwheel, tighten the track as necessary
by moving that side track tensioning switch. This operation will tighten that side track only.
Repeat Steps (5) through (7) for track on the other side. Repeat operation until both tracks have a gap 1-1/4
to 2 inches above the top of No. 4 roadwheel.
Move vehicle slightly forward to remove any slack in left and right tracks from behind the sprocket.
Place SPRUNG/UNSPRUNG control lever (Figure 4, Item 2) in UNSPRUNG mode.
Suspension control levers must remain in the LOWER position throughout Step (11). If levers
are returned to the neutral position before completion of step, Step (11) must be repeated.
Push left (Figure 4, Item 1) and right (Figure 4, Item 3) suspension control levers forward to LOWER position
and hold for 10 to 12 seconds. (Observe front of vehicle begins to lower, but MAY not completely drop to the
ground.) If front of vehicle does not contact the ground, follow Steps (4) through (9).
Return suspension control levers (Figure 4, Items 1 and 3) to neutral position.
Pull both left (Figure 4, Item 1) and right (Figure 4, Item 3) suspension control levers rearward to RAISE position
and level the vehicle. (Vehicle hull will stop momentarily while track adjusting cylinders function.)
