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

Any idea where to get the GL1 80w gear oil for the HG/OC3 rear-end in Canada? I can't keep getting it sent up from Zimmerman's.

There should be places that sell all kinds of oil in quarts, gallons, 5-gallon pails, and 55 gallon drums. Typically these same places deliver fuel oil for home heating and farm use as well. I would call around and see what you can find in your area. Good luck.

Hi Blake I did call around - Napa, Chevron and some fuel oil distributors, but none of them want to know or to help.
I will try again, but I just wondered if any of the Canadians on here had found a good supplier? I could use a 55 gal drum.

Imperial oils GL1 gear lube is Marvelube Gear Oil 80W90. Any ESSO dealer should be able to get that.  Also if you are interested in a 55 gal drum Imperial Industrial oil Teresso 150 would also be a suitable oil and available in bulk.  There would be an industrial outlet in any big city.

I got mine from the local NAPA. If you do a search on-line you'll come up with quite a few sources for GL 1 gear lube. Castrol Canada

Boy, I have made a lot of calls on this!!! This department and that department - press 2 to get cut-off etc. :evil:

Shell have Dentax 80w90 GL1 in 20lt. @ $70. But it has been discontinued for some time - so just available until stocks have gone. Have tried to order some.
The Esso Marvelube 80w90 seems to be available half an hour from me (thanks Robert!) 20lt. is $80 and 60lt. $230
The Castrol folks have a GL1 straight gear oil product but were rather unhelpful - so I gave up (but thanks Hotratz)
And the product Zimmerman's sell is Warren Oil 90w gear oil (@ $12/gallon = $3.17/litre = same as Dentax)...distribution points in the US only.

You can also use SAE 50 wt non-detergent engine oil if that is easier to find.

How far are you into Canada? United Refining in Warren, Pennsylvania makes these oils and they are available in Warren from West Penn Oil - http://www.westpenn.com/
