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,

It's been quiet out there for a couple of days.  Now that we've got Thanksgiving behind us,


    What does your Cletrac want for Christmas?
    Has it been naughty or nice?

    How about some new vinyl decals? I'm getting all the stuff set up to make them. I need some real clean graphics of the originals. And I need the details of what each model had originally.

    Once I get some of these details worked out, I'll be making them to sell. Let me know if you have any suggestions. And I need help with the above information.

    Take care,
    Blake

    What a great idea.  I think they'd look great on top of a fresh coat of Cletrac Orange paint next spring.   The little gal would really like that.

    Does anyone have a clear digital photo of the Operator Instructions decal that goes on the gas tank of the AG-6 (and others)?  Recreating those would be a nice project for us to work on during the winter months.

    As to number of decals, placement and logo sizes (by model) - does anyone have any answers to Blake's inquiry?

    i'm also trying to find out what the driver instructions were for my Oliver BD, I'm pretty sure they were the same as the page in the manual but without the numbers on the left.  What I'm not sure about is what it says on the top, in the book I can make out an oliver shield at either end of the first line.   I'm also looking into what the decals on the filters were?

    I live in England, got interested in Cletrac's when I brought an Oliver BD in 2001, I now have an Oliver BD a Cletrac BDH and another BDH for parts and have just brought a 1919 model H. I also have a british built Track Marshall 90.  Always keen to hear from fellow collectors.

    I have a set of new decals for my OC3, bought them from a big antique tractor dealer in Sweden. Think he bought them from the States. The set contains eight different decals. "Drain here...", "Oliver", "Oliver", "Be careful shields...", "Oil level", "Service air cleaner...", "Oliver OC3"x2 and "Improtant (HC??? Tractors) Use clean fuel an oil....". Seems to miss the small "Oil daily" sign on the bellhousing.

    My Cletrac wants its timing right.

    I removed Erik's file as it was over 100K and wasn't even Cletrac related. I tried downloading so I couls edit it and put it back up as a service to Erik, but it crashed my computer twice. Please keep files on this forum under 100K, over even smaller if you can. A good rule of thumb is to keep your pictures on the forum under 8 inches across at 72 dpi resolution. Larger pictures are better for the Photo Album.

    My E would really like a waterpump, I missed out this Christmas-maybe next Christmas. So Santa if you have a Hercules OOC waterpump in your bag and you don't mind carrying it to Australia, hang onto it until Christmas.

    Well I didn't get them set up in time for Christmas, but I'm now offering Cletrac license plates. See the Classifieds page on the site. They're $10 each, plus $2 shipping in the US. You can buy two and the shipping is still $2. Be sure to state which style you want - with the oval or without.

    I don't have my Pa vendors license yet, so I'm using my Ohio business address.

    I'll also be offering vinyl decals for tractors in the near future.
