Does it use the drum brakes as its park brake? i know my 763 had an option of disc brakes, not sure exactly why though as when you engage the factory standard brake, nothing will let it move.

Sounds like an interesting machine.

I agree with ken on the master cylinder, you may be lucky with taking it to an auto or brake store to match it. Worst case I'm sure they could bore it and install over sized pistons. As for the shoes, there are places over here that re-bond brake ...

If a torch was used, it could indeed be the plastic that melted and stuck the plunger.

I don't know what parts are inside this valve, so i can't say he is right or wrong, but if they work on them all the time, they should know and not feed you BS.

That is a pretty large HP for a machine that size.

Hopefully you don't need to change plugs often, that would really bug me to have to pull the engine to replace them :)

Nice looking machine.

What engine is that? almost looks like a beetle engine.

I have never worked on one, i'd check all the fuses i could find and check that the coil the mechanic told you about. Ensure it is not open circuit.

If you knew it was 12v, you could hook 12v to it and see if it unlocks as it should, then work back from there to find the issue, be it a fuse or switch.

You say it is stuck, is it stuck on?

Now, are there two solenoids, one either end of the aux? Bobcat machines use two, one for each direction. Is yours done with a thumb switch or with a lever/pedal? so manual or electrical connection to the control block.

If a track was to come off totally, you may need to replace it in the field. Not sure the damage that may be caused of you dragged it without  track on it....

You were lucky that you got it running again and on the truck.

I don't believe it matters what way it is wired.

The issue i can see, is i *think* the solenoid is 10v and not 12v, but i can't be sure. 12v for a short time will be ok, but best to not run it for extend periods of time without knowing for sure.

With the resistance OM has provided, it should draw no more than 4 amps.

Are the hoses long enough to remove the compressor and pull the pully off? Hopefully not needing to dump the gas

I was actually thinking about saying that, they do last a lot longer.
