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 http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?action=profile 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: http://cletrac.org/photos/

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 http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?topic=1299.msg5184#msg5184

Thanks,
Administrator

Hi everyone, new to site and looking for MG-1 parts, info, and just jeneral stuff on the old gal.  I was reading everyones posts. but they all seem to be about 2003.  Anything going on since then?  If redlineoryourmine is still around,  I very much would like to get in touch with you.  Thanks everyone.
 
Mine is the second style, with the newer air compressor.  My compressor is stuck, and I will probably put on another I bought.  Anyone have a source for parts on the compressor?  (Gaskets sets, etc. if I take mine apart)  My tracks are pretty decent. but the bolt on pads are coming apart.    Is this the place to list what I am looking for, or not?  I'll hold off for now.   Thanks to everyone/

Hi
       Every blue moon a manual or tractor will pop up on evil bay. I type in
Cletrac when I look there, I've also seen stuff under military tractor. I have a 1944 model . My compressor is stuck also. When we first went to look at the tractor the man had it in his shop using it . When we went back to buy it,he had let the thing run out of oil. I went ahead and mounted it on the tractor anyway for looks. I have eight new track pads for sale at
$10.00 each plus shipping, I would guess that is a fair price but you can check around. Also have seventy four track guides.they are new as well
but are not all the same. I don't know if some are early or what

Hi there
Do either of you want to sell your stuck compressors as I am looking for one for my MG-1 restoration over here in England. If so any idea of cost and could you crate for over seas shipping?

I am also looking for lots of other parts including light guards and mounting brackets, toolbox, fender mounted air receiver and hose racks, fender mounted generator and control box. What do you have???

Regards
Paul

       I'm going to hang on to my compressor in hopes of fixing at some point, Sorry. The only other parts I had to sell is the stuff that you seen listed above. You may want to check with Jerry Biro, I think that is the correct spelling on the last name. He is in Ohio his info may be on this website. Have you seen any canvas tops anywhere ??

There's an Amish guy around here who does all kinds of canvas work. Most of the fancy boat people in the area go to him.

          Thanks, could you get his info for me? A while back I had contacted a company called Beachwood canvas,they repro tops for all kinds of military trucks and jeeps. They didn't have a clue what an MG-1/M-2 was. I thought when I found the top bows the hard part was done, man was I wrong there. :cry:
