Thanks Guys !

I will send you some pics of mine soon.
I would like to see yours, where are you from ? Mine has incorrect mag. The engine was rebuilt, but it has not been started yet. All the serial numbers are intact.

I don't think I've ever seen one in person with those real early tracks.
Landis says he is bringing his to the show. It is the same as this one. He also said to take good care of those tracks, they are hard to find !!

I noted the 2nd and 3rd photos didn't show up in your post - here they are.
Thanks, John, I was wondering way they didn't post. My error, I'm sure....

Is anyone going to the Williams Grove Steam Show and the HPOCA Summer Show in Mechanicsburg, PA ? Just took the plunge, and made the decision to go down to see it. Send me a PM, and we'll look for you at the show in the Cletrac section !

A Conibear trap at the entrance to the hole is very effective. Almost gaurenteed if you know your on an active hole. Do not use in residential areas where you risk catching domestic pets. They do not come out alive....... Seems to be a lot of woodchucks around here this year too. Must be the year for them !

I had the same problem on my old Case 580CK backhoe. Rather than tear the nose off to get to the pump, I ordered an adjustable length "linkable" V belt from Grainger Industrial supply. A little pricey, but well worth it to me in time savings. If your tractor is a show piece, than this may not be an option, because it will not look original. It worked well for me on my old Case work horse ! Here's a link to the Grainger page listing these belts. http://

The one with all the extra parts wasn't a bad deal I thought. Oh if I could only find some fenders and a grill like those ! If that was on this end of the continent, I'd be on it like flys on krap !
23  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / HG, OC-3, OC-4 & General / on: June 23, 2009, 08:10:35 PM
Yup, That sounds like the one. I could tell from the craiglist pictures that it was fairly original looking. Too bad about the other one sitting out. Keep trying !! You going to Orange, MA. this weekend ?

Gazer, Is that the HG near White River ? I e-mailed with them too, and was thinking about going to look at it. How was it ? Is it a good one ? Just don't have the time anymore !!

We like pests that bring us new Cletracs to investigate ! You won't bother anyone here. Have fun..........

My quick reference book says it's a 1944, which is the same year that Cletrac was acuired by Oliver I believe.
27  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / All Models Except HG, OC-3, OC-4 & General / A Cletrac EG with Wheels ? on: August 20, 2008, 08:29:06 PM
There's a Cletrac EG on e-bay that looks like someone adapted wheels and tires to it after their tracks wore out. Looks like who ever did it was pretty handy, and put quite a lot of time and thought into it. It caught my eye, thought some folks here might like to see it too. Here's the link : http://

If that doesn't work, it's auction number : 110281483515

Ed, I went back through some of the older posts on this forum, and found a lot of good info about track and transmission lubes when I had my OC-46 apart last fall. I had the same problem of someone using grease on the rolls. I just socked the 50wt non detergent to the ones that I didn't have apart untill I had plenty of oil coming out of them. Ran it, and lubed it some more. The key info I found out on this site, is not to use any type of hypoid gear oil... 50wt non detergent motor oil or 90wt mineral oil is what you should be using.

Ed, the master pin has a cotter pin on both sides which you should be able to see. The master chain link has a slot (perpendicular to pad) in the sides to accomodate the cotter pins, whereas the rest of the chain links do not have the slot. I always look for that slot in the side of the chain to find the master pin.

Ed, I was able to get mine apart by myself with no lifting help. I was able to slide tracks, then track frame around on concrete floor. I needed a second person to get the track frame up on horses for repairs, and then again to help me slide it all back together. No hoist. The actual repairs were not too bad once I had the frame up on the saw horses. I had to weld nuts on a couple of the broken studs to get them out. And one I couldn't get, I ended up carefully drilling and retapping. The parts are readily available through Zimmerman, or some of the other collectors who stockpile extra track parts. If you get in a pinch, I probably can locate what you need for studs and roller mounts here. If you want to see pictures of mine apart, you can view my post http:// Good luck, and most of all have fun,  Esev.
