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

Hey, Everybody
I'm just getting started on my OC3 restoration.  I was making a list of small items that need to be found, replaced, upgraded or fixed.  I'm looking at the oil-bath air filter set up and wondering if I should retain that or adapt a replaceable paper filter.

Personally I think you should retain the oil bath filter.

Steve,
Any reason other that maintaining originality?  I was missing the tube from the filter to the carb which got me thinking about upgrading.  I guess that's now moot since I went ahead and ordered one from Zimmerman.

The oil bath filter is a much better dust environment filter. A paper filter will plug pretty quickly. I see you're in Western Wa. so dust isn't really a problem is it? :x

I like the oil baths, doesn't cost any money to replace for us cheapskates! They work very well for filtering also.

I might have to look at changing the way it mounts to make cleaning the air filter less of a chore.  Along a different line...I had popped the head off to check for a bad head gasket...found one.  Discovered the head was cracked...got another one.  Changed my mind about just getting it running again, so into the shop it went.  I'm going to spend the winter seeing how much trouble I can get into by starting the resto project.  You should have seen the look on my wife's face as I tied an old tire to the blade mount and strapped a 2x6 to the back bumper of my little Ford Ranger.  I couldn't get enough traction out of the pickup to push the OC3 up the slight incline to the garage.  Rats!  Fortunately, I had just enough 3/8 wire rope to latch onto the Oliver, run it through the garage, out the door on the opposite side, and down the hill across the yard.  I wrapped a chain around a big old alder stump and hooked my chainfall to it.  Whew!  Got that little dozer inside on some 3/4 plywood strips from some old concrete forms.  Let 'er rain!  (or snow)
