Honda hs1132 tread repair

I am trying to replace a tread on a Honda hs1132. Does the lock nut loosen counterclockwise?

the lock nut is underneath that cross plate and you do not need to loosen most times. it does go counter. all you usually have to do is loosen up both top nuts almost all the way to loosen track enough to remove.

an easier way is to remove both wheels after loosening up adjustment bolts and removing and replacing track with wheels as one unit. much easier.

plus if you leave the lock nut alone you will have your stop for almost perfect adjustment.

i should have posted this pic. just did the same thing 2 days ago. had to replace broken adjust bolt on free axle.

i used that 1/2 inch sander to sand welds off bottom of bolt to punch it out and did not have to remove axle. the axle laying on top was just to show end of bolt welds for reference. the track had come off because of the broken bolt made it too loose on that side.

the deflection of tracks when all adjusted up properly should be no more than 3/4-1 inch when machine is on ground and measurement taken from middle top of track.
