News: 10/5/12 - All new members are REQUIRED to fill out the signature section of your profile. Otherwise, you may be deleted from the forum. This is to help me determine if you are a member or if you are a spammer. Thank you.

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 http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?action=profile 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: http://cletrac.org/photos/

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 http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?topic=1299.msg5184#msg5184

Thanks,
Administrator

I've never seen fuel trailers like those but I do have two very poor quality image of cargo trailers built off the same platform...

It's interesting there is so little documentation out there for these units...

Here go Matt:

The only thing not listed is the shaft has a 0.188 Key to retain the handle.

Heya Jim - I just had a WXLC-3 shipped from CT to WA and they were ok with the 650lb guestimate I gave them - it had the clutch and accessories on it and sitting diagonally on a pallet it didn't hang over too much...

Had a cast iron zenith carb on it - flange is broken but I think I found a carb kit for it and can silver braze the flange back on...

So I figure 650 to 700 lbs is pretty close with clutch

I will get some pictures and post them here

Very cool stuff - probably could get them to do retreads on the grousers too since they are recasting the pads on M5/Stuart links too...

My MG-1 (SN-4JA836) was actually in "From here to Eternity" (1979) with Natalie Wood and William Devane - it's towing a big searchlight trailer down the beach during the invasion reponse scenes...

I got it from the guy who rented it out to the movie company - he has owned it since 1971 and it has a California auto title and license plate - now a Washington State title and plates (they didn't ask if it was tracked! Tongue )

I ended up with this little guy - it is indeed military - 1940 AG SN 1X2072

I will work on getting it going again once I get one of my MG-1's up and running...

What part of your pump is broken I have a few cores that also have misc broken ears and casting bits - maybe we can mix and match something to get you going - a few pictures would be good...

Also did you find an interchange number for the mechanical seals (carbon / ceramic rotating seals) or did your unit have the packing nuts with a compressable packing for a seal?

Matt

Have any progress on getting the metal bits for the cooling system made?

I have a repo shop manual - what about the clutch are you looking to find out? It'll be tomorrow but I can scan in the pages... Let me know what you're after...

Matt
14  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / Military Cletracs / Re: MG Clutch Access? on: August 29, 2011, 10:20:14 PM
Doug is correct the forward hatch under the fuel tank is you access point for the rubber rag joint, intermediate shaft and then the clutch and pressure plate...

Access is tight with the tank in place so pulling it is your best option.

The only access cover on the underside is a round cleanout plate in the middle of the oil pan - the transmission is a big solid chuck of cast iron down there!

One of mine is missing the hatch in question so I can snap a few pics in there if you are interested...

HTH

What pieces are they missing? The actual drive flanges or the extension housing - I may be able to help depending on the condition of mine when I pull it down - one of my MG-1's has a cracked final drive spacer block and I am likely going to get a parts vehicle to replace the damaged parts - anything from the cracked unit may be available based on inspection results
