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 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:

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

Landis was kind to send me a copy. It actually concerns the brief flirtation with 8 stud HG final drive gears, not the earlier 5 stud hubs that I was looking for. I've just purchased a July 1939 parts manual maybe that'll tell me.

Thanks.  Yes, I saw the YT one and copied the pics and comments.  Some thought it might be a bit light.  It might even be a master pin press.  I liked the y-tube one with the International 500 tracks the best so far.  I really like Zimmerman's service but freight is my concern.  You are right, I should see what the costs are.  Google helped  me find a business called Mobile Track Press near me.  I sent them an email.  I got what might be a robot response.  We will see if anything materialises.  I have so many projects that I really don't want to add building a track press to the list.  Exchanging the pins and bushings is still another project.  If nothing develops by spring, I'll probably try to sell it.  The rest of it seems pretty good.  There are lots of engine conversions so the good engine might have some value.  It has an unusual dozer that has its own frame-- well suited to the vulnerable HG frame.

Yes, here is one posted over at ytmag in the crawler discussion forum.
I saved it for future reference...a bit crude but I suspect it would work.
There was another using a 20ton? vertical shop press I think it was an OC-4 but I can't locate that one at the moment.
Fabricating a proper/secure jig on the business end would make it a safer operation.  I have watched the youtube videos.
Safety is number 1.  Not sure what Landis charges for the labor portion...any idea?

The bottom fell out of mine last year. Someone with a sheet metal shop should start making these.

Looking for a decent fender mounted tool box for my E-38. I think cletrac used the same one for MANY years. Thanks Bill in CT.

Did a search for "Track Press" on the Yesterday's Tractor site.  First post shows a home made press that looks much like a log splitter.

Check out the other posts; there are plenty of safety warnings and experiences concerning use of a home made press.

Stay safe

I read in the OC-4 manual never to use the reverse and reverse combo. I'm not sure if the same applies to the TRASCO Model A unit.

I just found some pics that I probably downloaded off this site before the other 'great crash'  Cry
Do these look familiar....there's more, this is just a sample. If possible, I'd like to post them on my Facebook site, but I don't know who to ask.
They may be from that gentleman who passed away a few years back?? He wrote the guide and kindly sent me a copy.
If it help, the photos were taken in April 2009.
