The OC-96 was an upgrade to the Cletrac A, but I think it may have used the B tracks. This is just from my bad memory. One of the two should fit - either A or B tracks. Are the bolts that hold the grousers to the rails in line or staggered with every other set wider?

is there any dealer you know were i can find used tracks for my machine.
The big problem with my tracks is the bushings and i cant find any spare parts because the Oliver  is not so common in sweden and specialy not the Oc96

Since they are in line, they should be the same as Cletrac A tracks. I'm not sure how the length of the tracks compare to the A since the tracks on the OC-96 to to the front of the radiator. But pins and bushings should be the same, so that should broaden your search potentials.

There are some other members on here from Sweden that may have some ideas for you.

There may be some other ideas out there too.

Good luck,
Blake

we found that Cat D-4 tracks will work on the oc-9 & oc-96.
No other Oliver or Cletrac tracks will fit.

Thanks,

Blake,

Other then some dimensions which I don't have with me right now, the OC-9 tracks do not have the loose rolling bushings that most of the other Oliver and Cletrac tracks have. With the loose bushing on the A track it makes the bushing too big to fit into the sprocket.
That is why the Cat tracks will work, as they did not have that technology till YEARS after Cletrac had them.

Ray

PS Don't ask me why Oliver didn't use the loose rolling bushings on the OC-9, Our X-12 doesn't have them either.
