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 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:

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

Good morning everyone-

I am a new to this group and a new HG owner with some basic mechanical knowledge, but learning as I go.  last fall the clutch stopped functioning on my HG, I tried many of the tips I found online about putting a load on, etc, however I decided to pull it into the barn and take it apart along with a few other projects that needed to be done on it. 

I pulled the case yesterday and found that the friction plate was totally shot.  I'll be replacing that along with the majority of the bearings inside.  My question, however is in regard to the springs within the assembly.  should I replace these?  they seem to function properly, however due to their age i'm sure they have lost some of their tension.

the two i am most concerned about are :

1.  Throw out sleeve spring  112754
2.  Yoke rod spring  37202

any advice you could offer would be most helpful.

thanks in advance,
Robert Barbour

The rod spring 37202 is the return spring and should have pressure on the housing when the clutch is engaged.  The sleeve spring is an anti rattle spring the holds the release bearing on the yoke.  The important thing is to have the 3 112 211 screws all set to the correct length.
