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

Before I put this away I thought this might help some of you. This iinformation is all taken from Cleveland service bulletins. Service Bulletin # CL-276 dated 3/24/1949 advised the field that all tractors would now have the serial number plate attached to the bellhousing instead of the main frame. The plate on the 31 inch gauge tractors had used this location before this date.
Water pumps. A water pump was factory installed on HG tractor 48GA116. The bulletin was dated 12/29/1948. Then a bulletin was issued over a year later that stated that they had used the wrong serial number and water pumps were first used starting with tractor Serial number 48GA 166. The new style front idler was first used on serial number 48GA626 so yes later HG tractors had the new style idler installed at the factory. More information on this later. Blake: if you need to move this information feel free to do so.

Thanks John!  This is very useful information to me.  I have always wondered about when an HG with IXK3 engine added a water pump.  I didn't think that the IXK3 engine every had one until I saw one that was being parted out recently.  The idler setup change info is also very helpful.  Thank you for sharing this input!

John, do you know if the optional water pump kit put into a '46 HG IXK-3 is the same as in the IXB-3?

Thanks for the bulletin info.

Well I was cleaning up and I found some of my misplaced HG/OC-3 bulletins including 3 on frame changes. Now I will try to get those sorted out by the weekend.

Well: I need to find the frame bulletins again, but did find a bulletin on checking the pressure of the OC-46 hydraulic system and what the serial number was of the first Hg to have an IXB engine. Will be doing some more cleaning in the near future.

Hi John. Anyone know what a "Main Frame Adapter Kit" is? Its mentioned in the OC3 manual for serial numbers 1WH000 to 7WH939 ? it has a different part number for each gauge 31, 42, 60, 68 and another part number for Industrials.
Its all in Service Bulletin CL-363. I'd love to get my hands on a copy. Many thanks, Chris

I believe  I may have one, I thought I bought a OC3  has the IXB3 but stamped 11 49 on the block , I called Landis and he thinks it's a late HG after I described it to him.
Mine has the pressed idler wheels also.
I cannot  find any serial  numbers on the bellhousing or the frame unless it's hidden behind the ware loader brackets.
If I could figure out how to post pictures on here maybe someone could tell me.

Just click on Reply, then go to Additional Options at the bottom left and then Browse. Select your file and upload. Or you can link to a file kept elsewhere.

Hello Hoopty -

I use Irfanview to play with pix. Free, and easy to use. The "half size" option (half width, half height) cuts the file size to about 25% of the original.

Google it for a download. But check the download selections closely so you don't wind up with some fancy annoying garbage . . .!
