Rubber Weasel tracks

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a set of the Rubber Weasel tracks with the modification kit required to run the Rubber tracks on the Weasel. I have a question for anyone who might know. In Byron’s Rubber Track Manual in this Forum the picture of the “Track guide wheels” or “Roller, track support” appears that the rubber has been removed from the wheels. My question is it okay to remove the rubber from the Roller,Track support?

thanks, Ernie

Hi Ernie,

after welding the cones in, it had ruined the rubber due to the heat. Also, because the rubber tracks run on these as guides I wanted it to have the freedom to guid rather than the two rubber faces to grip to each other if that makes sense. Also, the later Staman track kit come with the ready made new top track guides rather than distorting the old ones to weld the cones in. These new top track guid come with no rubber, so I copied that.

I hope this helps, and any other questions, please feel free to ask me.

many thanks

Byron Kay, England
