31  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / HG, OC-3, OC-4 & General / on: June 08, 2008, 08:45:03 PM
There is a company called "Kayenay Graphics Inc." (K & A) out of Mason City Iowa. 641-424-2535, or 800-779-2535. This info is from an out dated flyer of their's, so I hope it is still accurate. They stock a number of the more common tractor and antique engine model/serial number plates. If they don't stock it they can custom print what ever you need. If you call them, they will send you a flyer with instructions on how to order. The old flyer I have does list the plate for the Hercules engine in the HG/OC-3, but It didn't list one for the tractor.

There are some good pictures of this collection on the HPOCA web sight in the 2008 winter show pictures section.

There is a reference made, and an Oliver archive photograph of an experimental Ford crawler in C.H. Wendel's book "Oliver Hart-Parr" on page 273. He states that no records were found, but the existance of the photograph indicates some experimentation must have been going on between Ford and Oliver.

Ed, My OC-46 doesn't have a backhoe, but My model 46 loader manual does make mention of a diverter valve that is located in front of the loader control valve for tractors with a trencher. I suspect the third valve you mentioned is it.

The OC-46 is moving under it's own power. My 8 year old Son Nathan is familiarizing himself with the "new to him" controls. He's a pro on the wheel tractors, and the crawlers, but this two handled bucket control on a crawler is new to him.[/img][/img]

Here is a picture of a hand start Twinrow (same tractor as General) with forward mounted choke rod. Please excuse the poor quality print. It is the only image I could find showing what you needed to see ![/img]

I can't say that I have ever saw a choke rod on a hand start model that I was sure was an original. But they must have had something similar to what you described. I have seen a few home made choke rods on hand starts that are exactly like what you describe, and probobly are similar to original. Fabricate a piece of heavy wire or 1/8"-3/16" steel rod to a length just short of the grill (including a finger loop). You can hang it with a small wiring harness hanger from one of the middle two side panel screws.

Ed, I am with Blake, I don't think I would drain the fuel system unless there is moisture in it. Get it running, then service fuel filters after you know it is going to be OK. If it has only been a couple years it should be OK, and it is not a freezing cold day. I can scan the pages you need from the manuals, and I will attempt to e-mail them to you.

Yes, they are very nice to work on. We have a couple OC-3's, HG's. We've had our eyes out for an OC-4, and this one came along. The price was right, and it wasn't as beat up as they usually are. It has it's share of wear, but it appears to have been well maintained, and has had track work done to it not very long before it was taken out of service.
40  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / HG, OC-3, OC-4 & General / More OC-46 talk on: October 24, 2007, 08:12:53 PM
I haven't been on in awhile, and upon returning I see we have a couple new OC-46's on board. Cool ! Reason I'm here is Dad and I just went halvzies on this 59 OC-46. Thought We'd share it.
  Someone must have ditched it pretty hard on the right side because the bolts to the inside track frame trunnion brackets were all sheared off. The front idler shaft was bent, and the front of the track frame was also bent. We got her on the mends now.
  Anyone catch those OC-46 planetaries on e-bay ? Are they the Spot Turn Type ?

I like Mark's Magneto Service, out of Colchester, CT. He Stocks a lot of parts for these and other brands of Mags.

That one busted out pretty bad. The ones I have seen were cracked on the top through the seat mounting bolt holes. Another case of small machine asked to do a lot of big work. There is a lot of stress on that little casting when you add up the combined forces of the finals, drawbar load, and operator all hanging off it !! Add a loader to the picture and the stresses get even greater. I see very few of these machines that have had loaders on them, that do not have some sort of repairs done to them.

Those transmissions were famous for getting stuck in two gears at once. Check shifting fork alignment before tearing too far into Transmission problems. Easy fix if that's all it is.

If I recall correctly, I think I made one of those oil tubes from a piece of automotive steel brake line, when we restored my General.

I've seen similar problems like yours before. I have a couple of those housings, but shipping from here would not be cost effective. If you get desperate, let me know. Esev
