I know that there are several different sources for manuals (Landis Zimmerman, Jensales, Floyd County Historical Society...) Can anybody vouch to the quality of these??  I have seen some poor tractor manuals that were done on a copier where you couldn't make out the pictures.  Anybody have a favorite??

Look for originals on eBay.

My gramps Howard van Driest was Experimental Engineer at Cletrac and Oliver Corporation. After the plant closed, he and my uncle started an excavating business, initially using Cletrac and Oliver Crawler tractors.

I was hoping for at least a shop manual somewhat soon for an HG as I have 2.  1 that was already taken apart when I got it and 1 that I am taking apart (Kinda nice to know how it all goes back together again ;)

The Jensales one is ok and usable, but the pictures are not as clear as originals, and there is no attempt made to make them look original, as they are spiral bound, with a Jensales cover.  On the plus side the BD manual I brought contained 3 manuals in one for different serial numbers. Hope this helps you a bit. Sam

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.
