Thank you all for your help. I am really glad I decided to make an account and join this forum. One thing that would help me tremendously would be if anyone who has a Cletrac K20 would be kind enough to give me some rough dimensions on the sizes of the hood and fenders. I understand that this is much more difficult to do than it sounds but in the last 5 to 10 years of random searches I have not found any real leads that will help me restore this old crawler and with some dimensions I would have a rough idea (to compare to a radiator once I get one) how to have new sheet metal made for me.

Also, anyone with any information on where I might be able to find a parts cletrac K or an engine (even if it needs work) and radiator, please let me know. I really wont mind doing some traveling to get the parts I need.

I really appreciate all the help I can get. You can even email me personally if you'd prefer. Email:

The list of ser number for Cletrac model "F" "K20" & "15" tractors that is linked to the home page says that the first k20 serial number was 101. So yours should be the 4300th k20 made.

I don't have a listing of the real early Cletracs like the K-20, R, H, W, or F. If anyone has a listing, I'd love to add it to the site.

Thank you for all of your help. I never found that video of the Cletrac with the Sargent Snow Blade on youtube before. I will have to see if I can get some information on the blade dimensions and attachment information so maybe I can find a blade or build one for my crawler. Also, Connecticut isn't that far of a drive to pickup some much needed parts. I have put over 20,000 miles on my truck since June, I do a lot of traveling for work as it is.

Would you or anyone else know more about the serial numbers? I still have the cletrac tag on the frame rail and the serial number reads "K- 4401" Did these start at "K- 1" or at a higher number?

Hi Carl,Welcome to the group.K20s where mostly used as farm type tractors,for pulling plows ,cultivators etc.I had one with mickey mouse loader made by some old farmer with a stick welder.They were used to plow snow ,with a cable operated blade and wing blade.If you go on you tube and type cletrac K 20,there is one plowing snow with this set up.Ihave a original running 1930.Some have a belt pulley off the back.The radiator and front tin are the same as a W model.All Ks have a over head valve Cletrac does the later Ws. Good gas tanks are almost impossible to find do to age etc. They to are the same as a W tank. There are still alot ,of them around made from 1925 -1932.Too bad you are not near Connecticut,I know where 2-parts machines are. Good Luck keep looking, parts will turn up.  Bill.

This is my first time on this forum but I have read quite a few posts. I am from Mid-Michigan but I am currently down in Northern Oklahoma for work.

I bought this Cletrac K around ten years ago but someone had replaced the original engine, gas tank, steering wheel and took off the fenders and radiator. When I bought it the replacement engine had since froze up and so we stuck a little International Combine engine in it. The tracks on this Cletrac are in great condition, the transmission and clutches work really well also.

I have been looking for quite some time for information and missing parts/sheet metal/radiator/engine so that I can restore this crawler if anyone could help point me in the right direction? I do have a few additional questions about why the remaining paint (that hardly remains) is yellow? I have not seen any other Cletrac K�s with yellow paint. Also, on the tracks, there are mounts for what seems to be a blade but these mounts are much too weak for moving dirt. Were some of these crawlers Industrial and manufactured with snow blades? Does anyone have any pictures or information on what these blades looked like/how they operated?

My second tractor when I was a kid was an HG. It came with a MS carburator. I could not get it to run with that carb. I bought a Tillotson Carburator for it and all was good. The MS carb had fixed jets, The Tillotson was adjusable jets. I wish I had never sold that tractor.

Well, it's not a Cletrac, but we used another one of our tractors for a similar job in the same space  - I don't think it would have pulled the Log Jinker in the first video, but these 3WD Glasgow Tractors were advertised as 'Heavy Duty'.

Thanks Scott, yes I do have the dozer blade but have put it on the back burner for now. I recently found out where the hyd pump was mounted. I will have to purchase a new  cylinder and hyd control for the blade. I have the cylinder mount but it's large and very ugly so I want to finish the restoration and then try to fabricate something that's looks better. Sorry for the late reply but I have been busy trying to find parts and other projects.
