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

I have a FRAM C157 oil filter mounted to my OC-3, is this a good choice? I have read the oil filter report but I don´t understand why they still are in business if their filters are that bad.
Does anybody have the correct # for a equivelant MANN filter?

Personally there are so many documented cases of problems caused by FRAM filters that I would not use them. See Cummins cooling nozzels plugged for instance.

After reading and researching oil filters, my personal choice is Fleetguard - they are owned by Cummins. I could not find the OC-3 listed in their application guide, but you should be able to cross it from your FRAM.

NAPA and WIX filters are also good.

LF592 is the Fleetguard filter that should fit. See http://www.fleetguard.com/en/catalog/catalog_popup.jhtml?_requestid=3612769

Note - in my previous post, "Fleetguard" and "Cummins cooling nozzels plugged" are links. Even though they don't look like it.

George,
   The Wix 51102 is the correct filter. I always used those up untill recently when I went to buy one, and the parts store guy told me the 51102 had been superceded by the 51105. I would be interested to hear if your parts store guy says different. the 51105 is slightly larger, but seems to work fine.

FYI: Wix also supplies the Napa filters which are the same number except delete the first 5.Wix also has a 1-800 number that can be obtained from your supplier. They also make the same filter for other auto parts companies too.
