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

Thank You for the help fellas. thanks to your part number I was able to find this on ebay. Unfortunatley the price is out of the range I can justify at the current time. But it gives me needed information to possibly find another source. Lots of times I make what I can but this is a little out of my capability as of now.

I have been working on my HG and turns out that the bendix/drive gears are pretty much shot. The gear snaps in as it should but the threads are so worn it jambs up and won't release. Is there a source for these parts? It could use a set of brushes too. I have had pretty good luck finding delco parts but not so much on autolites based on past experience.

By any chance anyone have an exploded view of the starter? I have a sneaking suspicion there is extra spacers/washers in there and I want to double check against something.

Keep the pictures coming, can't wait to see it completed.

Things have been slow I thought maybe this would kickstart some discussion.

I am hoping to finish up my HG-42 and then finally after 10 years get to start work on my E-62.

This particular machine is pre-Oliver. The casting date codes would indicate it is a 1941. It does have the aluminum tag on the block, but like usual the serial tag is missing. I would lean towards this being the original block but no proof other than it has '41 in the casting codes.

Hey Guys.

I was just thinking about my ole E-62 that I'd like to begin restoring soon. I got to wondering what Cletrac or the aftermarket sold to go along with the model E. Actually I had the idea to build a loader for the machine with a bucket and forks. Sure would be handy for loading logs into the sawmill. At anyrate, I can't remember ever seeing a picture of an E with anything on it. Anyone have pictures of model E working, or with attachments mounted up.

Thanks for the info. I didn't think it did anything. I don't remember any tubes being hooked to it, but it was 2011 when I tore the motor down. Perhaps they thought it was noisy gears at one point. When I tore it down I learned that the 1/8 inch of clearance in the #1 rod and #1 main was causing the odd rattle sound it had. Then life got in the way of funtime so it was put on hold until I could get the babbit redone which just got finished up this week. It was a slow process of waiting for other to be able to help and me learning about it.

At anyrate I picked up an 1/8npt brass plug to put in its place. This poor machine had an extremely rough life.

Picture account of progress is here

8  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / HG, OC-3, OC-4 & General / HG42 IXK3 timing cover question on: March 15, 2018, 11:46:51 PM
Alright guys. I am working on my 1941 HG with IXK3 engine. It has a small pipe/tube coming out of the top of the timing cover. I don't recall seeing this in any pictures of any other HGs I have found online. Did someone drill and tap this hole to add an oil return line? maybe extra oil to the timing gears? Do I need to worry about it or just plug it? You can see it in the picture I have attached.

Looking good, I will be following your progress

Glad to hear you are back in business.

Good Thinking,

I actually need to make a toolbox for under the seat of my HG. 

I just made up a Battery Box for an Allis WD I am working on (Not Mine, if thats a good or bad) so maybe a toolbox would be easily doable too.

Bob, if you can throw out a picture or two and some dimensions it would be greatly appreciated.

Attaching a picture of the WD box for comparison

Hi Guys,

Some of you have probably seen my belt pulley thread. I have the idea to make some parts to help guys get their machines going again, and bring in some extra income for me.

What kinds of parts do you guys need that I may be able to make. I have a lathe and bridgeport to work with.

14  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / HG, OC-3, OC-4 & General / Re: HG/OC3 Belt pulley update on: February 01, 2013, 09:14:41 PM
I have a hard time figureing out what to ask for work, but I'm looking at about $250. It's nearly 10 hours a piece. I'm sure other with better tools to work with can do the job faster, but they probably ask for more on the hour too.

15  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / HG, OC-3, OC-4 & General / Re: HG/OC3 Belt pulley update on: January 31, 2013, 10:55:00 PM
Hey Guys,

I got ahold of some 8 inch Sch 40 pipe and completed the first pulley this week. Will begin making more soon to sell. Not sure exactly how to advertise these, might just post on ebay.

Attached a pic to show the completed pulley on the PTO housing.
