40c safety blocks

Post by fundytides » Fri Jul 13, 2018 5:29 am

Safety blocks were missing on my crawler when I got it. I picked up a set of used blocks and am installing them. It appears that the "nose" on the block is longer on one end than the other. Does the long end go up or down or does it matter?

Long end up on mine. That way it catches two sprocket points going forward.
