4. Some newer models require an Allen key instead of a cross-head screw driver..

Repeat steps 1 to 4 in reverse when fitting replacement sprockets.

It is a good idea to upgrade to metal gearboxes and metal sprockets at the same time to save effort.

This guide can be used for both replacing worn or broken sprockets with another plastic set and upgrading to a set of metal heavy duty sprockets.

If you are upgrading to metal heavy duty gearboxes, we recommend that you also upgrade the plastic sprockets to metal sprockets at the same time. Upgrade to metal heavy duty gearboxes and metal sprockets is recommended if you intend to run metal tracks on your tank.
