definitely not stock, I've never seen that done before. It may have been done to quieten the gears if they are noisy running. I wouldn't worry about it. Just my opinion.

Alright guys. I am working on my 1941 HG with IXK3 engine. It has a small pipe/tube coming out of the top of the timing cover. I don't recall seeing this in any pictures of any other HGs I have found online. Did someone drill and tap this hole to add an oil return line? maybe extra oil to the timing gears? Do I need to worry about it or just plug it? You can see it in the picture I have attached.

Regular steel tracks, Doug. I wonder if it was a wartime model built by another manufacturer?

I was working on this a few years ago and started to get castings made based on the Trasco unit. I got a pattern made and made a couple of castings. The casting cost is rather high and trying to find an iron foundry today that will make them isn't easy thanks to the government forcing all the small foundries out of business.  I may try again as I heard of a foundry that may make them, but cost is the main factor.

Thankyou for allowing me to join your forum. I come from a place called Swannanoa in New Zealand. A friend has recently acquired an old Cletrac or Oliver crawler. On the manufacturer's plate it is a model ADHR or ARDH-sorry, not sure which. The serial number is 1DF.006. It doesn't seem to relate to any of the serial numbers in your list-it has a Hercules DOOC engine. I wonder if anybody would be able to help me get to the bottom of the model-I know ADs and ADHs are common, but what would the letter R denote. Thanks Hamish Petrie.

Hi, I too am collecting the parts to do this. I have a transmission, clutch plate and a spare bell housing to chop down. Just need the shaft parts and the time to do it. Pics of your build would be great.

If you have a good drill press and bits you will be ok. Big hole I think is 4" that's the hardest to cut. A small lathe and you can made a drive shaft..  I would post pics but never have to this site and not sure how to, but if someone would type up how I will post picks of my build
