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,

Hi,
I have been trying to get a workshop manual for my M2 before doing any work on the clutch but so far have drawn a blank,I have the operators instruction book and have just ordered the parts book from Portrayal Press but if anyone can point me in the direstion of a workshop manual I would be very grateful,or if anyone can scan the section dealing with the clutch that would be a huge help!.

Thanks,

Matt.

The engine is a Hercules WXLC-3. There are sources for parts but I have not as yet had to source engine parts. I have seen used manifolds on ebay in the past.

19  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / Military Cletracs / MG Clutch Access? on: July 22, 2011, 06:56:22 AM
As I have posted previously the clutch on my MG is stuck due to it having stood unused with the last owner for 10 years. I don't have a maintenance manual yet and I'm not going to start taking things apart until I have one,but how easy is access to the clutch on the MG? and if I have to take it out what is involved?

Thanks,

Matt.

Hi Matt,
I just read that you started your Cletrac in gear because the clutch was stuck. I recommend not to do that again, I did it once and bent the teeth of the starter motor sprocket. The Cletrac is too heavy for that. When the teeth are bent, you notice it by an irregular noise in the starter motor when starting the engine. I had to have a new sprocket made.
Jean.

Thanks Jean,I don't intend to start it in gear again,we had hoped the clutch would free off but obviously that is not going to happen. I need to get a maintenance manual and then take the top off the transmission and see what is going on.

I have had the fuel pump rebuilt so that is now much better,I need to sort out getting replacement air cleaner hoses,I have the metal part but the rubber sections are gone. I also need to source a NOS/rebuilt water pump or have this one rebuilt.

Can anyone suggest a source for a water pump and a reprint maintenance manual and a parts book?

Thanks,

Matt.

Thanks to all who helped me on this,today we finally got the Cletrac started and it runs very sweet though the clutch is stuck so we were only able to move it by starting in gear. At least we have establised the motor is good,the water pump leaks so will need to be rebuilt/replaced.

Hi Jim,

Yes I have found Zinc Chromate on mine,and on some of the parts I recently bought from the US. Some parts also have Red Oxide on them which also appears original.

I now have NOS Champion 0 COM plugs and have almost completed making replacement HT leads but I have another question! what is the correct plug gap?!

Thanks,

Matt.
24  Cletrac Tractor Discussion / Military Cletracs / Re: Cletrac MG/WXLC3 Spark Plugs? on: March 25, 2011, 08:24:27 AM
Thanks everyone for your replies. The plugs fitted appear to be pre-war Bosch and are pretty tired!. Jean that's great! I have found a source for NOS Champion 0-Comm and have ordered a set along with replacement HT leads so hopefully we should be running soon!.

Hi,

I'm just getting ready to start my Cletrac MG for the first time in over 10 years and I have found the sparking plugs fitted are old German made Bosch,the part number of which does not cross reference with anything I can find. I would be very greatful if anyone can give me an idea of the best plugs to use.

I must buy a shop manual!

Thanks,

Matt.

Thanks,

Matt.
