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

Just started working on my "new" OC3 and realized the clutch pedal isn't hooked to anything. There is a rod with a 90 degree bend coming out of the bell housing (see photo) and it is threaded on the end.

This is my first OC3 and I have never seen one at a local show so I don't know what I am supposed to have as a linkage between the clutch pedal and throw-out bearing. Can anyone tell me what parts I need, am missing, or need to fabricate or buy?
 A photo would be helpful!

Some of our other OC-3 experts might have an idea, but I don't know what that 90 deg bend in the rod is for. I don't think it's supposed to be there. Should be a yoke theaded on to the rod and attached to the pedal.

According to the good folks at Zimmerman I should have a rod, spring, and offset clevis to connect the clutch pedal to the throw-out bearing. Parts are on their way, along with tubes and hoses to connect the air cleaner to the carb. Don't have manuals yet so would still appreciate a photo of the clutch linkage if anyone has one!

This pic shows what mine looks like without the clevis screwed on for the pedal attachment. IXB3 engine, OC-46.  Not sure if the OC-3 is different.

Thanks for the photo. It gives me some idea as to what I should be looking at. Still waiting on parts, should be here early next week.

How does the linkage connect inside the bell housing, or does it just press up against something?
