I have what looks like an oil leak coming out of my first idler roller on the outside front of the track. What needs to be done?

the idlers have a seal on each end. it needs replaced. they are a $#@&^% to replace.there is a plug on the idler . remove it and keep it topped off with oil until you get it repaired, mikie

I know one guy running Cats that takes the fill plugs out as soon as the machine shows up and replaces it with a grease zerk. In his experience, its just a matter of time (short) before the seals are out. Has had good luck with this program.
