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 watch people spend a lot of money for Cletrac brochures for their private collections.   I've lost out on a lot of auctions for those brochures.

Then I think of those of us trying to properly restore a machine, trying to get the appropriate decals in the correct sizes and places.

I would be willing to help compile an archive for the Forum to aid in Decal Type, Size & Placement across all models.  

Original Cletrac Photo and Printed Material sources would be a great help.  And if you didn't know, Blake can cut the decals.  

Besides the standard oval logo, I am looking for a decent clear photo of the operator instruction decal for my 1946 Model A - I would like to have that recreated.  I'll bet there's a demand for them too!

I moved it over to Product and Accessory since it is still Cletrac related.

Some of the smaller items like decals and stickers for instructions can probably not be cut from vinyl as I do. However they can be silk screened. I don't do that. I may someday get into printed vinyl and I am sure that they could be done with that process.

If anyone will help John D with compiling logos and decals for the different models, please mail really sharp copies to him, or scan them at about 1200 dpi and save them as tiff files. In order to creat the Adobe Illustrator files to cut in vinyl we need to have really sharp pictures.

Thanks Ray, I bought a set from you folks at Zimmermans - they are still waiting for me to finish up the job and put them on.

And a big THANKS to Landis for repairing my broken track last spring.  I enjoyed the brief visit to your shop, and look forward to returning this year for the full tour.

I had fun getting the track out from under the AG-6, loaded into my truck for the ride down and back, then installing onto the tractor, using a worn out old Ford 8N Sherman Power Digger backhoe to do the heavy work, which it barely managed to do.  I admit to getting it done rather quickly, only to realize I had put it on backwards.  Took it off again and put it on right.  Guess I needed the practice.  LOL

I have a pile of books and brochures. The next time I go to Blake's I will take them and let him go thru them to see what we can get. Maybe we can even scan some brochures and put them on the website for others to enjoy.

Has anyone gotten any farther on this issue? I sure would like to see some good decal placement photo's for my early OC-4. Most are somewhat easy to figure out generally but exact placement for some of the obscure ones would be nice.
