Exclamation track is rubbing on heat exchanger

i replaced all my springs and shock on my suspension and put new cog and bearings in and i rode last night and still noticed my track is rubbing on about just a half an inch length on my heat exchanger right in the rear on both side about the 2 idler wheeles, i have been able to get it to stop rubbing before but i had to re adjust it and its still rubbing i tried loosenin and tightening track still rubbing, can someone tell me if i got to adjust track or front springs or something to try to fix this thatd be great

is it stock track or has one been put on with deeper lugs? sounds like a lack of clearance and if its in the rear then you can make a drop bracket for you suspension to gain the clearance needed

no its all stock, ya i heard i could put a lift on it, but it shouldn't be rubbing its weird cause its right above those 2 idler wheels, the track is getting pleanty of clearance within the top but no clearance on top of those boogie wheels, like its getting way to much pressure, idk

Id say double check everything is in the right spot, you said you had it all apart and put new in, there are a ton of adjustments that can made check your skid mount holes and see if your in the highest or the lowest, the rear arm can flip over while you had it apart,

no the upper hole will give less clearance and i think loosening the track will make it worse

I would take the skid out look it all over make sure everything looks right, check the new springs you put in that they have tension and are installed correctly, then put it back in and see if anything changes. trying to think its been a long time since I worked on a 79,

ok i will, u can tell its been rubbing for a long time, this has just been such a pain in the neck trying to get this to stop rubbing and its a pain putting the skid back in and out so it would be nice to get it right for once.
