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,

Please help...I have a Schebler TTX 21 carburetor that has a defective float. I can't find a new float anywhere, but I am wondering if there is a more readily available replacement/interchangeable carburetor that will work? Its off a 1945 Oliver 99 ....or a Hart-Parr 28-44 would be the same I assume.

You can't somehow epoxy floats from another float onto the framework? Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Is it a brass float? Or cork? You can easily solder another brass float to the arm to make it work. Just have to locate one that fits and is similar shaped.

Or, if your float only leaks, perhaps you could solder the holes? Make sure you don't make it too heavy though.

The float is brass and is in the shape of a small hockey puck. I have not seen another one even close to the same size or shape.
It does leak and I had unsuccessfully tried to solder it years back. I was able to piggyback a piece of cork onto it, which was working up until it calved in the middle of a parade last summer. Hence the search for a better solution.
I will try epoxy and some new cork, if I can't find what I need.
By the way...I just missed a complete TTX 21 carb. on e-bay, and not far from me.  Cry

Cork will absorb gasoline and sink, unless it is sealed with shellac. Unfortunately, ethanol will dissolve shellac, so cork floats are out unless coated with something that is both gasoline and ethanol resistant. Plus, whatever it is coated with has to be light.

I've seen round floats like that. I bet someone could solder it, unless it's totally destroyed.
