    Splitting undercarriage from mainframe 8015

    Hi has anybody splitted the undercarriage from the mainframe on a jcb 8015. Is it just the case of removing the ring o bolts underneath on the undercarriage and the body should lift off? Does the slew motor have to be removed also? Cheers in advance.

    Never had to do it ,But i would imagine , you would need to do something with the hoses on the centre joint .

    ..... other than hack 'em off when they get in the way of the lift you mean Ian ..... a lot to separating top from bottom .. carboy from crawler ..... less than on a duck though

    Want to be reasonably well equipped to try that one and need a bloody good reason
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Wel that's it apart. Yeah was relitivy straight forward. Only had a car jack at hand but o it did the trick. Decided to Get it shot blasted.. When I split it I noticed there was a bit of oil around the centre joint so might have to replace the seals. Also the oil that was around it was emulsified. What's the best way to get rid of all the emulsified oil out off the system? The rubber on the hydraulic hose look remarkably well for no cracks perishing but the ferrules and fittings are quite rusty. What's the best thing to do, just replace the fittings or new hoses, if hoses is the special type of hose as I've seen normal hose won't last that long. Also how does the track idlier wheel come out?

    I take my hat off to you splitting that, with just a trolley jack ..... indoors ...

    like your timber trestles ... used to have some similar heavier ones and was amazing just what sort of weight they'd take

    Kerosene for washing out duff oil followed by a flushing of fresh oil, works for me :)

    extremely well done! especially as its your first time. Idler wheel slides out, it is heavy with a large spring. you could screw the adjuster in to help push the wheel out just be careful. I had to tap out the 24mm thread to 27mm as the threads were worn, Good luck
