1  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / HG, OC-3, OC-4 & General / Re: 1948 Cletac HG 42 rebuild, restore, reuse. on: September 19, 2017, 09:57:07 PM
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?

Chris, no message came through on your last post. Maybe it's just me. Anyone else see Chris's response?

Welcome aboard Newbie in Oregon. Earlier HGs had serial number plates on the frame outside near your right foot. Later HGs and OC-3s had them on the bell housing. See our advertisers page and parts suppliers page to find manuals. Originals are often available on ebay as well. You can download a sales brochure with specifications here http://cletrac.org/media/manuals/OC-3%204pg%20A-1009-B.pdf

Glad you're getting some good information here. I wish some of the other guys would jump in.

Welcome aboard Glen! I too learned on an 8N, then a Leader tractor that was similar in size to an 8N. Then I kinda restored my General that had been in our family since new. Then graduated to the bigger stuff. I was able to drive around our OC-96 when I was pretty small as it took no physical effort to go back and forth and steer. Wish we still had it.

Hopefully we'll get some responses for you VJ. Sometimes things get slow here.
14  Welcome & Rules - Please read before posting / New members introduce yourselves here / Re: Howdy from Mich ,I'm Tom on: March 02, 2017, 01:18:21 PM
It sounds like a BG or BGH (the H meaning "hillside", which is a slightly wider tractor.) Since it says Oliver, there's a good chance that it's a BGS or BGHS. S meaning Studebaker as the engines are Hercules JX series made during the War for Studebaker trucks. After the War, unused engines were sold to Cletrac and installed in the B tractors. Supposedly they are better balanced for higher speed in the trucks.

Was there anything on top of the radiator Richard? Is it streamlined or undsteamlined?
