Toro PowerShift 1028 - drive chain tension

Hi all,

Working on the "drive" capability of my 1028 PowerShift and noticing the drive chain is pretty loose. Almost an 1" - 1 1/4" deflection or "play" in the chain... Should I be taking a link or two out of the chain?

Do not take the chain!!!!!!! Apart stand the unit on the bucket. There are 4 5/16 bolts that hold the trans in in the back you slide the trans up or down to get rid of the xcess slap

It likely has the instructions in the manual

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
