News: 10/5/12 - All new members are REQUIRED to fill out the signature section of your profile. Otherwise, you may be deleted from the forum. This is to help me determine if you are a member or if you are a spammer. Thank you.

9/22/12 - I ask that you please add a signature line to your profiles on the Cletrac Forum to help me to determine who is spam and who is not. You don't need to drop everything and do this immediately, but please do it when you get a minute and you are visiting the forum. Just go to and put something in the signature area. If you no longer want to be a member on the Cletrac Forum, please remove your membership.

8/10/11 - Added a new board: Trucking and Hauling

5/30/11 - Just added several new pictures to the Photo Gallery, including several Alfta Track OC-4 working in snow logging, several from the Chicago Road Show, and some from a logging show (not all Oliver/Cletrac). All these pictures are from around 1963 and were scanned from old slides given to me by my late friend John W. Davis. Go to the Photo Gallery and click on "NEW" to see these pictures. Quality is marginal, but I think you will enjoy them.

2/13/11 - Just added a new board "New members introduce yourselves here".

Folks, I just added a new photo gallery where you can upload your own pictures with descriptions, etc. Right now this is in the beta testing stage to see how it works out. Give it a try, but please keep a backup copy of your pictures just in case we decide to use something else. I would prefer you use your real name on the photo gallery, but if you really don't want to, please use the same username as on the forum. Please put your images into the proper categories and take care when your write out your descriptions and image names so people can search for them. I am learning this as we go. At least at the beginning, I have it set up where the administrator has to approve members. I am afraid we may get porn spam in here if we leave it open. To get to the photo gallery, use this link:

Folks, when you join the forum, or when you get the chance to update your Profile, please be sure to put your location and interests. Filling out your signature would help as well. I've been getting some spammers joining and posting links to sites that are completely unrelated to Cletrac or Oliver, or anything to do with tractors. It would make it easier for me, as well as all the other members, if you guys would put your location and interest in your profile. See

Yeah, Bob I know what you mean. We have 4 guys at our store with over 32 years experience each. They know the parts business, and where to find them. We use the paper catalogs as much as we use the computer. A lot of industrial parts just can't be found on the computer and you must know where to look in the catalogs. Some catalogs have what are called Buyers Guides, these have pictures and descriptions of the various parts, and are great for finding industrial parts. NAPA has resources for industrial parts that a lot of the other parts stores don't have. Try going into one of the other stores and asking for a head gasket for a F245 Continental engine, they will be lost.

Very nice looking tractor. Great job! It would almost be a shame to get it dirty. I bet it didn't look that nice when it was new.

It's amazing what you can do with a thin cut off wheel. I have removed broken off bolts by cutting a slot in the remaining bolt and using a screwdriver to remove the broken portion of bolt. I wonder what we did before we had cut off wheels. Sure beats using a hacksaw.

Could you post a picture of the Master Cylinder? Do you know the bore of the cylinder? I think NAPA could get you either kits or a replacement cylinder. You may have to take the cylinder with you to get a proper match. I work for NAPA, and we have parts books with pictures of a lot of older parts that are still available.

How about a Continental, like a F163. They made a bunch of these for industrial applications and parts should be still available. We used F163s in our Tennant scrubbers and sweepers when I worked for GM. They were good tough little engines. We ran hydraulic pumps off of them and they ran all day at governored speed.

Check with a Larger NAPA store. They have a lot of Industrial Engine Parts available. If they are in their parts books they can order them for you. If the warehouse has them in stock, they can get them overnight.

I work on Industrial Trucks, (Forklifts), and we used to use Continental flathead sixes in our Clark lifts. These were either, F244,or F245 models. These engines had a Hydraulic pump that was gear driven off of the timing gears. Look on the side of the engine for a plate that has the model and serial numbers.

I have an old Cletrac metal sign that is orange and black and has a picture of what appears to be a model AG on it. The sign dates back to the 1940s and was given to me by my Grandmother. My Grandfather owned several different Cletrac models including a very early diesel model from the 1940s. I learned to run a model DD in the late 1950s when I was a young kid. This Cletrac had a dozer blade that I think was a Heil unit. What I would like to know, is if the metal sign is really worth anything, I don't want to sell it. The sign is about 18in. by 18in. and is in really nice shape. Thanks.
