Devcon for sprocket/final drive shaft repair

Post by a_man » Mon Aug 22, 2022 8:46 am

Howdy all, I have a crawler where the splines in between sprocket and final drive are worn and the threads that hold the sprocket nut on are shot.

This is actually a case 310c crawler, but my research on spline repair for crawlers led me here hope that is ok.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3118&p=14520&hilit=devcon#p14520

I wondered if the deere parts kit has any special directions or if I should just grab the 1 pound kit of plastic steel of amazon and go for it (Or should I spring for titanium?)

Got some pics of it in post 19 of this thread on HEF, will copy them over when I get home, but they are not showing up now.

Thanks a bunch --Andrew

I'm sorry I don't have anything to add but I went and read you thread over on HEF and man on man have you got a project. I wish all the best!

Maybe bumping will get Lavoy over here, he's actually used the stuff in question.

hi A-man, i have used the devcon steel putty and it is a very good product, but it is not going to hold up (fix) your problem.

I'm assuming you mean between the hub and the axle? If so, I'm also assuming you have a 3 roller crawler?
