I was active duty tanker for over ten years, only changed track on an M-1 once and that was because of a new design track. On M-60A1/A3, we had to replace track pads as needed, but we quickly learned to give the head of the screw a love tap to mushroom so the nut would not vibrate off.
I'm with you and CDAT. I never changed a track either. I did have to replace those rubber track pads all the time too, at least on the M110 (the M113s didn't have this issue).
