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

First I would like to say hello and thank you to everyone for this forum. What a wonderful source for information. After years of keeping a watchful eye out for an HG or OC3 I finally found one roughly 30 miles from my home. I am now the proud owner 9WH994 with a 3HI Ware Loader. Its in pretty rough shape. I just finished the total disassembly and have run into a couple of "head scratchers". It appears as though someone replaced one of the Final Drive Housings with that of an HG which is roughly 3/8" longer than that of the OC3. After researching many sources and speaking with Zimmermans it appears as though there were three different designs used for the final drives and two different housings used which coincides with the two different frames used. So far I have seen one design that uses a tapered axle with only one ball bearing on the housing to support the pinion gear and uses a clip to hold the pinion gear on the axle. Then there is the design that is on my crawler which is the side I question. It uses a tapered axle with a ball bearing in the housing and another in the housing cover. It uses a pinion gear that has a shoulder on both sides that the bearings ride on. Finally, there is the design that matches the diagram in my OC3 manual and the other side of my crawler that uses a non tapered axle with tapered roller bearings. A large tapered roller bearing on the housing side and a smaller tapered roller bearing in the housing cover. Can someone please tell me if I am on the right track. I am ready to start my quest for parts and want to make sure I get the right parts. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

As far as I know the later setup you described (tapered Timkin rollers and seperate bearing retainer cap bolted to the cover) is what you find in the OC-3 and OC-4. The earlier set-up with ball bearings and no separate bearing retainer cap is typically HG.

Welcome to the forum!

Late HG tractors also used the bearing caps with the Timken bearings. If you get the final edition of the HG parts book you will find both are listed. I used to have a serial number break on when that occurred.
