Do you have any part of the original rubber track system? I assume this machine was recalled by Oliver and then changed back to steel.

It's hard to tell from your picture... how far from the seat and how far from the valve stem is the hole? Could it be plugged with a pipe plug and then machined off? They do install hardened valve seats and use some kind of adhesive to hold them in, so there is something that will hold up.

I just received a message from someone in Western Queensland Australia who has a BDRH SN 1JM044 that they want to sell. This number does not match anything I have on my serial number lists, nor have I heard of a BDRH. Perhaps the "R" is unique to Australia and New Zealand?

No message came through on this post.

I would check NAPA for the head gasket. Also, Zimmerman's and OliverCrawlers.com. Should be easy to find. The bearing should have a number on it and be easy to find at a bearing supply.

My E-62 had a fuel pump. Since it did not pump correctly, I took it off and just gravity fed the gasoline. The only time you need the fuel pump is if you are going to up extremely steep hills with less than half a tank of fuel.

I'm not sure if it will work, but if the pistons from the JXD are good, you might be able to have the block bored to fit them.

Dustin,

New manifolds are available from a couple sources for these. Prices aren't bad either, so I wouldn't bother fabricating.

The magneto has no connection whatsoever to the electrical system, so changing to 12 volt or negative ground will have no bearing. There are some nice small 12 volt alternators out there that fit nicely. I'm sure you'll get some responses on these. Going from positive to negative  ground would just involve reversing the battery terminals and hooking up the new alternator. Reverse terminals on the ammeter. You'll have to change light bulbs when going to 12 volt. Starter should be fine.

Hope that helps,
Blake

Some of our other OC-3 experts might have an idea, but I don't know what that 90 deg bend in the rod is for. I don't think it's supposed to be there. Should be a yoke theaded on to the rod and attached to the pedal.

Welcome aboard Tim! I'm in NW Pennsylvania, about 30 miles south of Erie, so I know what snow is like. We don't get as much as you guys, but we do pretty good. Blake

Does the starter turn it over ok when hot? If so, I would say it's not a starter issue. Maybe your valve clearances are too tight?

It runs! The OC3 starts pretty quickly cold, a few cranks and fires right up. Once hot, it is very hard to start. Is this a timing issue? Or a case of a starter issue??

It sounds like a real serial number. It would have to be a 1936 as they made both the unstyled and streamlined that year.

Blake

It is "unstyled" with the letter "E" at the top of the radiator. Mine is also "unstyled" with the letters "CLETRAC" at the top of the radiator.
 Will try to attach the picture.

Sparky, is the E with sn 6A94 streamlined or unstreamlined?
