A few years ago there was aGeneral in a small junk yard near here.  I do not remember right now, but it had a non adjustable wide front (standard tread) and I should have wrote it down, but something about being U S goverment property. Joh Ault told me about one he looked at one time too. Those wide front ends do not show up in mu parts books. Any comments.

david pope is the guy that has the heater i give the orrigional manual back to the owner and my reprint dont have it in it i forget what it says about it but it does show a picture of it. i think david said its to hang under the oil pan to preheat the engine and have herd from non reliable people that they directed heat under the seat but im not sure about that ill get the orrigional when i go back again to try and talk the other guy out of his 4 cletracks which are mostly parts except 1 which is the best one ive ever seen still in shed.

Cletrac made a wheel tractor that used a lot of the same components as the OC-3.  They called it model GG or "General"

They sold the design to B.F. Avery in Louisville, where they were made for a few years.  B.F. Avery sold the design to Minneapolis-Moline, and they made them for a while as well.

Mongomery Ward sold them too.

I believe the Wards and the Averys were actually made in at the plant in Cleveland at the time and sold under their names.
