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,

I'm looking for a high temperature green paint to use on my exhaust manifold. I don't want to porcelainize.
It needs to be a gloss paint that will closely match the Hart Parr green-( Martin Senour 53-8753 ) which is darker than John Deere green.
I've looked everywhere.    Any body out there know of paint that will work ??

Thanks..

I don't think there is any paint that will really hold up for long on an exhaust manifold of a gasoline engine - maybe a diesel as they run cooler. It would probably stay on the intake runners of the manifold. The aluminum hi temp paint may hold up for a while. If you find a green hi temp paint it will probably darken right away before it turns black and then burns off completely.

I would have to agree with Blake on this one. I've painted mufflers and elbows, that are quite a ways away from the manifold on my semi trucks before, and it has burnt off in no time at all. It says it will take 1100 or so degrees of heat, and according to the pyrometer I never let it get over 900 and it still comes off...

I'm thinking I did see a green hi-temp at value, I think rust-oleum, but can't say for sure. It may hold up to the heat from your exhaust, as long as you don't intend on running it long periods, or working it.

Best of luck, and if you find something that works let us know please.
