I sold a Mercedes diesel to a guy by the name of Anthony, who put it in an HG and then later sold it to someone on here. If you do a search, I'm sure you'll find it. Haven't heard any updates for a while though.

Welcome,  Old iron is always good!


Yes, yes it is. I recognized your OC4 from pictures over on chainsawcollectors.se, I've been looking at an OC4 here locally with a loader, I am just waiting for the owner to get more realistic with his price  Cool

Welcome aboard! Sounds like you've had your hands dirty before! Smiley


Yep, I've been turning wrenches since slightly after I learned to walk. Grew up building high performance snowmobiles and fixing small power equipment and moved on to working as a tractor mechanic. I stopped turning wrenches for a living 12 years ago, but it is still my stress relief. I have restored countless engines and other pieces of equipment over the years, but finally bought a crawler earlier this year after years of wanting one. When I found the HG, no one knew what it was (because of the obvious AC engine) but through the power of google, we figured it out... I've located another HG (minus a motor) and we are debating what it should be repowered with... flathead v8, air cooled v4??? once I have this tractor (the 20c) done and a few  other projects wrapped up, we'll think more seriously about it.  Roll Eyes

Yeah, it's the housing the covers the clutch. See if you can find an engine serial number - usually on a machined flat spot on the side of the block. There may be a date cast into the engine block too. Those numbers can give you approximate date of manufacture.

I'm not an HG/OC-3 specialist, so I wish someone else would chime in here.

Blake;
The number as listed is a casting number.  I have looked high and low and can't find any additional numbers.  When you say bell housing - is this the area right below the gas tank area?  Sorry as I am unfamiliar with the terminology being given.  Any illustrations or photos you might have would be great.

Thanks

Newto the forum here. Currently I have two Cletracs. A HG42 with a Allis Chalmers B125 power pack engine conversion and a 20c that I am doing a complete engine overhaul on (sleeves, new valve seats, new valves, rings, etc). I have experience working on Cat Sixtys (restored one this summer). I also collect just about any old iron I can .

That might be a bit tight, if measured to the flat part of the track in the low area.

I measure 2" from the bottom of the 2 x 4 to the top of a cleat (lag? grouser?). A bit looser is better than too tight on those old girls!

Too loose, though, and the tracks pop off those front idlers with the inside guide ribs. The front idlers with the outside guides, and the IXB3 engine with the water pump and bearing inserts were, I think, the major improvements on the later OC-3.

Generally I lay an 8 foot 2x4 on edge on top of the track from sprocket end to idler end and measure from the lowest point on the track (droopy section) to the bottom of the 2x4 and adjust so that distance is about 2 inches.

It doesn't look like any numbers listed in the serial number list http://cletrac.org/media/Cletrac_Oliver_SN.pdf

Is that a casting number or is it on a tag?

Blake

being a newby - Is the housing you are referring to below the gas tank at the transmission area?  I did find the following number - 112017.  Is this considered the serial number?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advane
