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 Matt,
I just read that you started your Cletrac in gear because the clutch was stuck. I recommend not to do that again, I did it once and bent the teeth of the starter motor sprocket. The Cletrac is too heavy for that. When the teeth are bent, you notice it by an irregular noise in the starter motor when starting the engine. I had to have a new sprocket made.

Thanks Jean,I don't intend to start it in gear again,we had hoped the clutch would free off but obviously that is not going to happen. I need to get a maintenance manual and then take the top off the transmission and see what is going on.

I have had the fuel pump rebuilt so that is now much better,I need to sort out getting replacement air cleaner hoses,I have the metal part but the rubber sections are gone. I also need to source a NOS/rebuilt water pump or have this one rebuilt.

Can anyone suggest a source for a water pump and a reprint maintenance manual and a parts book?

Thanks,

Matt.

Have you tried Zimmerman's for the pump?  I think he's also got the manuals.  There's information posted here for sourcing manuals.

Hi Matt,
I bought a maintenance manual (copy) from Landis Zimmerman about 2 months ago, and a nos water pump from Jerry Biro when I rebuilt my engine. This was in the summer of 2000. Try both, everybody working on a MG-1 should have that manual.
All the best, Jean.

Hi Jean,

Thanks for that. I should have updated the thread but have been busy! I now have a full set of (reproduction)manuals for the MG,and I think I'll be buying a NOS water pump from Jerry Biro as the guy who is supposed to be rebuilding mine has let me down.

Hopefully by the spring I will have my Cletrac running and moving properly.

All the best,

Matt.
