Manual for a 1945-46 HG/where are serial numbers located

Postby vfdemsrn » Tue Dec 09, 2008 10:24 am

Where is a good place to find a manual for a 1945-46 HG?? Also where do I find the serial numbers on the tractor. Also where is a good place for engine parts; lots of them!! Some nimrod pulled the piston and lost it to begin with I can imagine what else is missing.

Thanks to anyone who can help!!

You can get the manual and engine parts from Zimmerman Oliver Cletrac, their contact info can be found here: http://www.olivercletrac.com/

The serial number tag for the machine should be on the right hand side of the bell housing. There is also a serial number tag on the engine, but it only has engine info, nothing about the whole crawler.

Serial number location

Postby John Schwiebert » Wed Dec 10, 2008 7:26 am

The serial number for the engine as well as the engine model number will be stamped in the block on the side opposite the manifold and near the top of the block. On a tractor that old the serial number tag was attached to the right frame rail. It was moved from the frame rail to the bell housing a few years later. Now if this is a 31 inch gauge crawler it will be on the bell housing.

Danny,
The gauge on Cletrac or Oliver crawlers is the distance measured from the center of the rear track sprocket to the center of the opposing track sprocket. They came in 31", 42" and 68" standards with 68" being most common, and 42" least common. I have heard of a 60" gauge, but that was probably for special applications. A 1945, or 1946 42" or 68" would have the serial number tag on the right frame rail behind the foot rest. Due to this location it is common for these to be missing, but if you clean the metal there should be 4 holes or broken rivets if the tag is missing. A 1945 could be the standard Cletrac Orange until about November when they changed to Oliver Green, and either color would have the narrow center strip on the grill. 1946 would be Oliver Green, possibly some of the earlier ones might have the narrow center strip, but once inventory was used, they changed to the wide center strip. I have seen a couple of the narrow strips on 1946 models, but there was no wide strips on 1945 models.
