HELLO. This is my 1942 AD I just picked up two weeks ago. It is a Hercules diesel and it is painted what looks like International Red from the factory. This appears to be the factory paint, and not a repaint. There are rubber with steel plate street pads installed. Some have been replaced with steel cleats. From what I can gather this crawler was used for snow plowing and road work. There is a mount on the front frame for a snow plow and what looks like a bracket to mount a salt spreader to the rear pto. The engine was completely overhauled 10 years ago, but the owner passed away and it sat still disassembled until I bought it. From the stories I can put together, it was owned by a municipality or a private contractor or both before the last owner bought it. I have since bought 4 rebuilt fuel injectors for it and some other parts, the injectors were lost. My freshly overhauled 1948 Farmall M is going to the equipment shed and the Cletrac is going into the shop for a winter rebuilding. Here are some photos of when I first pulled the tarp to pick her up. PS this is my first Cletrac and am excited about getting her going for next years shows. YOU HAVE A FANTASTIC SITE I WAS ON IT FOR A YEAR BEFORE I BOUGHT THIS CRAWLER, THANK YOU. Phil, McHenry IL.
