Default New to me Cletrac-K20? What can ya値l tell me about it?

All,
I just acquired this little crawler from the family of a late, dear friend of mine. He used to show it years ago, in much the same cosmetic condition it is in now, but it ran then. He said it had a nasty habit of the tracks jumping off all the time-when I went to pick it up the tracks were off the sprocket, but as it rolled off the trailer one side jumped back on!! My first crawler, so any help will be appreciated. Would really like to know how parts are to find, such as the manifold, engine parts, and undercarriage parts.

An amusing story about the manifold-it was always like this since he acquired it, and when he bought an IHC TD-14 apparently he used the Little Cletrac to pull it from his driveway back to his shop. His next door neighbor related that as he pulled the big crawler he had flames shooting out from under the hood!!!

I was lucky to be able to borrow an 8,000# all terrain Terex lift to load it with-never in all the years of collecting old tractors have I loaded any tractor up in such record time!!!

Thanks,
Mike

The place to start with all things Cletrac is Landis Zimmerman at olivercletrac. com...
Be careful with the engine; some catalogs list a K 12-20 with a Weidley MB; Weidley was an old engine builder who was acquired by Cletrac. Others just say "own"...
Parts catalogs are confusing----thay show a K 12-20 with that MB engine, a 35/8x51/2 OHV, and a K-20, apparently rated 20-27, with a Cletrac engine 4x51/2, also OHV...can't tell from catalogs if an upgrade or a completely different model..
