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

As I have posted previously the clutch on my MG is stuck due to it having stood unused with the last owner for 10 years. I don't have a maintenance manual yet and I'm not going to start taking things apart until I have one,but how easy is access to the clutch on the MG? and if I have to take it out what is involved?

Thanks,

Matt.

The clutch access is located underneath the gas tank.  The easiest way is probably to remove the hood, fuel tank, and fuel tank support.  Maybe one of the other guys has a better way, but I'm not optimistic.  I don't remember if there's a panel on the underside.

Here's a picture looking forward.  The panel is right in front of the steering levers.

Doug is correct the forward hatch under the fuel tank is you access point for the rubber rag joint, intermediate shaft and then the clutch and pressure plate...

Access is tight with the tank in place so pulling it is your best option.

The only access cover on the underside is a round cleanout plate in the middle of the oil pan - the transmission is a big solid chuck of cast iron down there!

One of mine is missing the hatch in question so I can snap a few pics in there if you are interested...
