Default 89 Indy 500 track replacement

I have found a few tears in my track and the lugs are pretty flat. Two things: A.) is it a difficult task? B.) Any idea the size? I would like to put a used one on the machine but am having a hard time finding one.

It isn't a terribly difficult task but it takes a couple of hours, maybe a little more if it is your first time doing it. You will need to pull the skid, secondary clutch, exhaust, and depending on the clearance it is sometimes easier to pull the entire chaincase out instead of just taking off the cover and removing the chain and sprockets.

As far as finding a track there is usually a few listed on craigslist for a halfway decent price. I also have a track in my garage that has some wear but no tears and would work for your sled.

Thanks for the advice, all. I have found a few tracks and will probably give the installation a shot. Do need to replace any seals or anything?? Someone I talked to said that the chain and case need to be removed and there is a seal for that....

The chain case will have two sealed bearings that are fairly easy to replace and if you are going to have it apart anyway it is a good idea to throw some new ones in.

There's a discussion of bearings and seals for the chaincase in this thread:
