Comments:Nice to see an interest in this equipment line. Spent many hours behind the wheel of Oliver tractors ( standard 88, 880, and 1800) and the first combine I ever drove was an Oliver 40 on my grandfathers farm. Most if not all of the Oliver equipment was purchased from Sokal Brohers. (Oliver dealer near Winnipeg Mb.)

Comments:I grew up on a farm in North Eastern Indiana. My dad bought the farm after serving in the army during WWII in 1946. His first new tractor was an Oliver 70. He was on a waiting list for a John Deere, International and Oliver, the Oliver 70 came up first. Dad passed away twenty years ago but I still have this tractor, this 70 has aluminum curtains I still have it the plow, heat housing and cultivators. Dad had mainly Oliver tractors 1655, 1755, 2- 660's, and a 550 with loader, I have them all and have added a 60 and 66 to my tool shed. They are not show pieces I like to use them. I will be sending a question on the Carberator problem with the 1973-1655 gas freezing up.

Comments:Dear Mr. Harsin,
Thank you for a great resource on the Oliver tractors.

I am very fortunate to own a 1650 that I inherited from my father. It was the tractor that I spent my teen years plowing with on our Dairy farm in Klein Texas. I used it just a few weeks ago to move 45 round bales out of the hay field. It was the day after fathers day and although my father has been gone since 2004, I was able to be with him in spirit just the same.
It was a perfect day, even the blown hydraulic hose half way thru the day, that only took 2 hours to repair, was "Icing on the Cake"! Just like old times!

Thanks again

T Kleb

My best memories are in the fifties on a farm where everything was done with one Oliver Rowcrop 60. I thought that thing was invincible. From plowing to picking and baling. We even ground all our feed for the dairy cows, pigs and chicken with it. I remember one nasty Indiana winter running it 24 hours a day driving a generator for power for the milkers, lights and some heat.
Thanks for the memories!

And i am looking forward to make it so special and original, as was it new. I need the right colours, maby i can get it from you or someone can tell them to me. I havent got all the books over the tractor from my father yet. Maybe i can see the codes in them :-)
Last but not least, i enjoy looking on your site, when i need some parts i know were to look :-)

Listen, I threw some duals on that 18, and still had all I could to pull through that gumbo. I got stuck out there, to go get a ham sandwich, then the irrigation came on and we left it their till harvest. I said that Oli need that turbo to all flat bring it all time on the flat it. We pulled that Steiger out there in the Fall and pulled that 18 out. I stuck to rollin corn with that sum bit, and hit that left wheel brake on the headlands and really cranked on that cheater wheel, and really spinned them around. Had that radio mounted on the fender. Couldn't hear it.

The engine oil looks ok. Changing engine oil and filter is obvious.
Looks like there is milky gear lube in the diff and other stuff in the hydraulic caused by sitting out in the elements and a bad shifter boot.
I Googled your previous post re; using Med hyd and 80-90wt.
Since we dont have manuals, where do we put in hyd and gear lube? ... there are several oil caps and vents on our rig. There appears to be a diff lube level plug at the rear next to the PTO and a really short fill plug/dipstick (really short one) thing at the to of the 3 point and a fill plug next to the steering column on the hump.
I havent found Hyd filter yet either. Thanks in advance for all you guys do out there. Joe

It was our workhorse through many of those years and it was a great tractor. I would love to find it or one like it but they must be very rare cause i can't find one. I miss that tractor and i'll keep checking your site. Thanks for all your effort.

Comments:I'm really happy to come on this site. My husband recently passed away and left me with our Oliver Super 55 gas tractor that needs rear wheels & rims. My son and son-in-law looked at the rims and they say they're too far gone to weld up enough to put new wheels on. So where do you all go for wheels, rims and other parts. My husband was really the only one who knew anything about this tractor so we are floundering around a bit with it. I'd like to get it restored if that's possible but at least would like to be able to put the rear wheels & rims on it since the rest of it is mechanically sound.

The first one was the roughest one when White/Oliver was bought by TIC in 1981. They owned the company about 4 years, and also filed bankruptcy. We were then bought by New Idea of Coldwater Ohio in early 1986. They Moved the tractor assembly line to Coldwater in late 1986 from Charles City Iowa. I moved to Coldwater in November of 1986 and continued in the purchasing department, until the company was sold to Agco in 1991. At that time I left the company after 27 1/2 years. I Still have some literature from the company.

My faves are the 2255 V-8 model fitted with a cab and mechanically actuated front-wheel drive assistance, and the 2655 articulated 4-wheel drive tractor with cab, and the 545 combine. It's rather rare that anyone sees any one of those, I must admit.

I,for one,am very grateful to you,and appreciate your efforts enormously! I am the proud owner of an extremely nice '66 Oliver 1850 Perkins diesel,I purchased from the original owner,with 3800 original hours,equipped with a Lundeen heated cab,Oliver 1610 loader,set of dual's,it has the dual p.t.o.,hydra-power,and a Sherman 3 pt. backhoe attachment. Everything works on this tractor,right down to the original dome light,it is "complete"(has original top link,tool box,etc.). In addition,I have an original Oliver dealership mechanics service/repair manual,it also has brand new tires,and I have a very extensive "spare parts inventory" for it. I grew up on 1850,and other Oliver,diesels,and this one is a true "survivor".I had thought about selling it,however,I'm not sure I can part with it. Anyway,thanks again for being so kind,and for the fantastic website!

He had other tractors that had more power, etc, but the Oliver was the best at getting many jobs done. From feeding cows, to grating the road to pile driving wood fence posts, the Oliver Super 55 did it all. I loved that tractor.

Comments:My name is Mary Ann Kerr. My dad was raised on Olivers, my mom on International and Allis. My sister and I up until about 10 years ago didn't know any better but red and orange. We are a pulling family in Columbia, Tennessee. My dad wanted to do something different than what everybody else had so he went with what he knew best, the Oliver. We have a little 77 that we pull antiques with and a 2150 with 8.3 Cummins. I have had a great time with the sport of tractor pulling for it is all I have ever known and Oliver tractors are growing again here in our neck of the woods.

Comments:I was suprised to learn how many tractors are related. I have an Oliver 60
'Row Crop'. We purchased it when my son for about 10. It is anything but
'mint', but a good working friend. I found a new steering wheel on E-Bay
and wll receive in a few days.
I wish to replace items not on it when we purchased. I am looking for a
pair of 9 bolt pattern wheels ( and tires), since the original ware ulcerated
and may fail.
The starter converted to 12V, and I wish to do the same with the generator
sometime soon. As it is, I simply charge every now and then.
I will attempt to check over you parts listings for what I may like.

i have, is i cant seem to find a serial number anywhere
on the tractor. There is no tag on frame, and no numbers
stamped on frame. All I know, is it is between 1958 and
1975. Any idea where numbers might be ?

Comments:Hi from Wisconsin. My dad and grandpa came to Wisconsin in the early 50's. They bought their first oliver in 1954, a 77 super with a freeman loader. After my grandpa died my dad used it in his tree removal buisness. MAN COULD THAT OLD GIRL LIFT.It would actually flaten the front tires. I have always loved old green.Felt sad when she finally gave up. I tried to get my dad to rebuild her, but he wanted to quit doing so many big jobs. We bought a 550 with a loader at an auction that my mom still has today. Little green runs a little rough, but the old girl still just keeps a goin. WHAT A MACHINE. I have always love olivers. There is no better green than ollie green. What a great sight. I am interested in the 1650 with the loader, and the 1600. I am working on re-starting a stump removal business. Both would handle the stump machine really well, and make it easier to get around lawns with. My step-son goes to school in Esterville. I would really enjoy seeing the old greens sometime. What a great site!!!!

I realize it is a fiat engine but i have heard alot of good things about them and it would work perfect on my farm, being a little squatier but with comparable horsepower to the bigger tractors for skidding logs and such, so wish me luck i will keep you updated and let you know how i make out! pss.. i cant get enough of the video of the 88 pulling that jd backwards, and the other clips also they never get old. thanks again for such a great site, take care and god bless.

Comments:Howdy,
I grew up in Florida and we had several 550 Olivers. From 1981-1983 we had a 550 Diesel. Then from 1985-1999 my folks had 3 more 550's (1) was Gas with grove tires and the other (2) Diesel - one running and one for parts. My dads good friend, Albert Green, was an Oliver/White mechanic for a very long time and knew them inside and out. He worked for the Oliver/White dealership in Lacrosse, Florida. Mr. Rawls who owned the dealership was a farmer as well, with several Oliver and White tractors used on the farm. I recently have been searching the net looking at Old Olivers and reminiscing. They were great tractors and hopefully one day, find myself an Ole Oliver implement to restore and place at our driveway entrance. Then maybe even find me an Oliver tractor to restore as well to just drive around the neighborhood. I am glad that my family got into Oliver tractors. I appreciate the memories and the longevity that they still provide.

Comments:Greetings friends. I am 60 years old and I have fond memories of an Oliver OC12 which the new Zealand Government roading authority used in our town.I distinctly remember the red "lolly" as we called it, which my Dad used to put on a spike in the air cleaner before he started it. From what I remember the OC12 was a very sturdy machine and extremely well built.From what I recall the OC12 was well proportioned and as we say in our trade, "would climb where a goat dared to go" I also remember a farmer in our district had a little green Oliver he used on his farm and we always expected him to fall off his seat because of the way he was seated so far back. I operate a CAT D10T in an iron ore mine in Western Australia and I have fond memories of the Olivers, and machines like the TD24s which played a big part in the development of our country. I wish you all well.

Comments:I recently found a two seat planter, not a corn planter, sitting in a friends woods with trees growing up through it. I asked if he was going to use it but he did not want to sell it as he thought it was a valuable antique. I said I would try to bring it back to life if I could use it and he could keep ownership of it. He had found it earlier in another nieghbor's yard, again with trees growing up through it. I brought it home and used Liquid Wrench and WD-40 on it and all the gears and bolts loosened up and it appears to be in working order. So far all I have had to replace is the hose that runs from the water tank to the intermittent water gauge which was cracked and brittle.
I plan to plant year old rooted grape cuttings with it to let them grow another year and get more size. A neighbor's strawberry planter never did the job very well.
It has a larger barrel for water in front, two steel wheels which control an intermittent water valve that floods water about every 12" or so into a furrow that the planter digs and then closes up. Two seats between the wheels for two people to sit. Pretty tight fit. However, It looks ingenious and seems to work really well.
It has remnants of green paint but not John Deere green but likely Oliver green. No serial numbers of company name can be found. Any thoughts on this ingenious little planter as to whatthe model is? Who made it? Where it was made?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks, John

But I know nothing about the oliver other than it has always been my favorite of the old tractors. It is not perfect but looks very good and runs well. Glad to find your site. Posted a question today and will likely post more in the years to come. Thanks very much for offering your advice and expertise. I'm sure there are many oliver owners that really appreciate what you are doing.

My 2 siblings live on the same farm and we have all raised our families on the farm. We have used Oliver tractors since I was a kid and I am a senior citizen now.
I currently have an Oliver 1650 diesel I bought in 1969 and it is a 1967. Still farm with it some.
I purchased an Oliver 2150 diesel 2 years ago that was recently restored. It is a 4wd tractor with a Hercules 131hp engine. I pull the corn planter with it and have it in lots of parades.
Our big tractor is a White 6124.
Would like to know about how many 1650's were built as well as the number of 2150's.
Thanks and keep up the good work.

He used it until the pto clutch gave out & the lift stopped lifting and he gave it to me 3 yrs ago. I put a new clutch pack in and replaced the lift piston seal used it mainly to brush hog. Well last month it spun #4 rod bearing and I thought she was done for, I found an overhaul kit, rebuilt the motor in 2 days (this was the first tractor engine I have ever done) and now its back up and running. Shes a year older than me and I wish I ran a good as she does.

I don't usually find time to do much web browsing, but found your site, and had to share my latest exitement with you, my Oliver friends....my adoption of a 1953 Row Crop 77 gas NF! Sure brings back memories of the one we had when I was a youngster. (I was born in 1956) Already tried it on the Gehl 50 MX grinder-mixer, instead of one of my two 1755 diesels, and it handled it nicely. I'm sure I'll have questions. I enjoy reading your answers.
If planning to come thru this area, please call. Thanks!

My Dad bought it for me when I was eleven years old and we were farming full time. Today I live in a small country town at the age of 54. This tractor will be passed on to the first born grandson if and when my girls have any.One thing that amazes me is that it seems everytime I have the garage door open somebody usually a farmer will pull up to admire my old 77 all painted up and running perfectly and it is not to often they dont share a story of themselves or somebody they know who had one of these. Thats what makes it all worth while. Thankyou....

Comments:Greetings from Byron, NY. Great website! I've never been a farmer, but some of my earliest memories are of my dad coming home from work with a new Oliver on a trailer. Unfortunately these were never for us to keep! My dad was a mechanic at an Oliver dealer from about 1960 to about 1970. He also made some deliveries, and this is why the Olivers were in our driveway overnight. As for myself, I just bought a house with seven acres of pasture for a lawn, and I need to find a tractor to take care of it. Hopefully I'll happen upon a good old Oliver! If I do, I'll know where to go for help with it! Thanks again.

The woods and hard work wore this poor old work horse out but I'm going to try to get it back together eventually. I found your site while trying to find pictures of what my tractor looked like new or at least in one piece. Thanks for the website.

I to grew up with olivers and also farmed with them my dad had a 70 rowcrop a 1650 diesel a 1550 diesel and a 880 gas and it liked the gas my father did a lot of custom work besides dairy farming. When I was farming I had a 1755 diesel wide front, over /under Hrdraul Shift transmission that was the gretest idea I have ever seen in transmissions 3 speed shift on the go. That 1755 would dyno 107 horsepower consistently. I am no longer farming but have fond memories of Oliver tractors and always felt they were the best tractors and most innovative trators made.

The McLouth Threshing Bee in McLouth, Kansas Aug 6,7,8 2010 is featuring Oliver Tractors this year. We will also be having a tractor ride on Aug 6th (approx 30 miles) with old fashioned threshers meal at the historic Old Jefferson Town in Oskaloosa, Kansas. Meal will be served by the ladies of the Petticoat Council in their vintage costumes. Proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Jefferson County Historical Society. Would be tickled if you or some of your friends could come for the weekend.

It appears to be designed to navigate soft ground, such as a cranberry bog. It has a 6 cylinder diesel engine. Any ideas?

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Back in September of 1989 , Alvira Chambers at the Floyd County Museum , in Charles City Iowa was very helpful and sent me a copy of the Owners and Parts Manual. These publications were a great help to maitain the Tractor. I am considering selling this unit in the near future. Do you know of anybody in this part of Canada that might be interested in giving this Oliver a good new home ?

Comments:Hello,
I just love your site! I grew up in southern Minnesota, outside Cannon Falls, and also worked with my Uncle in Hector,MN. as well. I have grown up with Oliver's and just love them! I am disabled now, but still do some farming, and even have an 66 Oliver 1850, that is my pride and joy! I wish I could post a picture of it, as for one thing it's in pretty darn nice shape, and secondly, I can't seem to find another like it. From what I have been able to find out, it has the Perkins diesel, adjustable front end, the factory Contintal cab, a Schwartz Loader, hydra shift, etc. I have not been able to find another one like it though. I would love to show it to you and let me know whatever you could about it. I am planning to do a little rebuilding on it, just to get it as close to "new" condition as possible, so I could use all the information I could get. I don't know how much I will be able to do myself, since I am disabled now, before I crushed my legs I could have done it all, but now I dought it. I wish I could bring it up to your place if you have another open house, but I guess I will just have to wait and see if that happens, and if I can get it up there, since I don't drive on the street anymore, myself, only on the farm. I don't want to take the chance of hurting someone else, so I gave up driving on the road, that was hard to do, but I think it's for the best. I just can't quit farming though, it's been in my blood since the day I was born, 51 years ago (on the 22nd of this month, I turn 51), so I have to keep on farming till I just can't do anything at all. God bless all of you and I really enjoy your site.

LARRY & SANDY,
IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE I HAVE SEEN YOU,I LIKE YOUR WEBB SITE IT'S QUITE A TRIBUTE TO YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION OVER THE YEARS. I HOPE YOU CAN GIVE ME SOME INFORMATION I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE. I'M PLANING TO PUT PHOTOS OF MY 99 GM IN THE ANTIQUE POWER CONTEST, THEY WANT SOME INFORMATION I'M NOT CERTAIN OF, IT'S REGARDING THE PRODUCTION HISTORY. WOULD YOU KNOW THE ACTUAL YEARS THE 99 GM WAS PRODUCED AND THE SELLING PRICE WITH BASIC HYD. AND A PTO . I'M THINKING IT WAS 54 TO 57 AND AROUND 7500.00 BUT I'D LIKE TO BE MORE CERTAIN. IF YOU CAN HELP WITH ANYTHING ON THIS EVEN THINGS I HAVE NOT MENTIONED PLEASE LET ME KNOW. IT WAS GOOD TO SEE YOUR SITE AND I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON.

Comments:I wrote in about the hydra power problem on the 1600. [It belongs to my boy.] I too was lucky to have been around OLIVERS a long time,right up to the end, with the 2255's. My dad also sold new equipment years ago. 770,880,550,525combine. When the new 1800's came out that new style look really took my eye. You can't beat the color of medow green,and clover white. Dad and I farmed about 2,000+ acres so we have had 2 1950's w/detroits,[which I ran mine with a staight pipe, pulling a 6-14's plow. so now my hearing is not to good.] 2 2255's which we used up to the end of our farming days.I still have a 1650D,550 w/loader&blade,green&white7800combine, oliver drill on small rubber tires.I only have 10 acres, hobby farming. Dad is gone, but like him right to the end we will always be OLIVER strong.I still have a flicker pin of the 73 husker/sheller 2 row picker,from the old days.I too I'am very glad to see the amount of people that still have the OLIVER fever,and the new ones collecting now. I still have the memory's, of days gone by,when Dad and I worked the ground with our OLIVER equipment. Thanks for your help. Marvin.

Comments:Hello,
I was born and raised on a rice and soybean farm in the Mississippi Delta and grew up on just about every brand of tractor and combine they made....except Oliver! I hear good things about them and see them really winning lots of trophys at the antique tractor pulls. I have set about to study them and learn more. I hope to own one one day, I am keeping my eye out because there are a few in Mississippi I believe. Are there any good books to read with Oliver history/development? A real nice web site you have here, thank you , Paul Dakin Oxford Mississippi

Comments:Efter WWII gave USA Denmark tractors as the oliver as Marschal help to mecanise ouer farming.
Onse in 1957 a gray Ferguson 31 helped my fater on ouer farm and were stoked. to Olivers from a maschin compagny came to assistance to pool it free. The driver cryed stop, when they nearly pooled the tractor appart . The gearbox began to leak oil.
They had to dig before it got up.
I was 5 yaer old, so in my mind Oliver is huge.

Have a nice day

Comments:My dad was a farm equipment dealer in southeastern North Carolina (Brunswick Tractor Co.) from 1967 until they closed in 1986. He sold a bunch of Olivers during that time. He mostly sold 1255 and 1265, 1355 and 1365, some 550 and backhoe/loader which was based on the 550. Also 1550, 1650, 1750, 1850, 1855 and I even remember a behemouth 4WD "Mighty Tow" (maybe a 2250?). It was industrial yellow with a V-8 Cat diesel. We still have a 1255, runs great. Many of those old tractors are still going. What memories I have as a teenage kid getting to operate brand new Oliver tractors. I wish I could have stashed a couple of them away so I could marvel at them all over again.

I have a big fenced in pasture in my yard now. My great grandfather used to farm with a 55 oliver that my grandpa now owns. The tractor has been sitting in his yard for the past 27 years under a tarp. I want to rebuild that tractor so bad but he wont let me even pull the tarp of and look at it. I offered to buy it off of him, fix it up and paint it, then give it back but he still wouldnt budge. I dont know what else to try..

Comments:I'm the Newsletter Editor of the California Oliver Cletrac Club. Most of our membership are primarily Cletrac owners, but some of us have Olivers also. I just recently acquired an Oliver 1365 that was rolled on a hillside and suffered a lot of top and front-end damage, but was otherwise a still viable tractor. The fellow that rolled it is married to a local judge and I imagine she has a pretty strong character - she told him in no uncertain terms that he was Not Going To Drive That Tractor Ever Again! So he was giving it away, and me being editor I went over there to take photos; one thing led to another and I arranged to haul it away to the Bechtholds shop. They did a tremendous job on it and it runs like a champ now and looks great. Oliver really knew how to build things right (of course this is one of the Fiat-Olivers, but it's still pretty darned solid and a nice utility tractor). I enjoy reading your column in Sherry's Oliver Heritage.

we like our resurrected model 1955, year 1974 tractor....
it has brought a certain amount of joy to quite a few in
this small community of battleground, washington....it runs
a pto baler, a john deere 4 bottom semi-mount plow, a glenco
12 foot cultivator, and pulling trees when needed... runs
like a champ... tho i am still replacing o rings for oil
leaks... and probably will be talking to you on the leak on
cross shaft for the 3 point under the seat.... outboard seals
leaky... and the brake on the left side started leaking... tho
i haven't tackled the problems yet.... just now getting out of the field work.... we had a pretty good year, tho hay
prices are on the down side a bit... still having fun and
enjoying the tractor, especially with the new seat cushion...

It was then that he bought a Oliver 70 which he used till 1952 when he bought a 77 brand spankin' new. His main tractor was a 1949 88 used to pull a mounted lister. He used the 77 for a mounted Oliver corn picker. In 1953 Dad bought a 33 Oliver combine. Since then we have had a couple of 770s a 1800A, a 1650, a 1750, a 1850. Most all these were purchased from Clayton Penney who had the dealership in our community and then in Sidney Ia.

Comments:Recently purchased a 1964 Oliver 1850 with 2250 hours on it. It had set out back of a gentlemen's home for about 2 years after he retired from farming. Tractor runs fine after tune-up and oil/hydraulic fluid change and I routinely use it for smaller jobs around the homefront. Am looking to restore it as it is the same make and year that I learned to drive when growing up on the farm in Wakefield Nebraska. Grandad actually owned a Oliver store in Wakefield so was pretty happy to find one way out here in North Carolina. Am looking for best sites or suppliers that can help me find replacememnt parts, sheet metal and decals.
Many thanks.

I enjoyed your site very much. Recently had a conversa-tion with a man here in Texas who did not believe that
Oliver built a farm tractor with tracks.He said "Oh,sure,
it was called a clectrak." To this I said yes,they did buy
out clectrak in '44,but they did produce a tractor(looked
like a 60 to me)with very narrow tracks mounted on it.How
ever,I have not found any pictures of one.Did I just dream
that thing? Anyway Good Luck and God Bless-George Childs(Tx)

A year ago, my son Jamie and I got it out and had it totally rebuilt. We had the engine overhauled, brakes replaced as well as the clutch. We also had it repainted. Unbeleivable....it looks like the day it came from the factory. It makes me feel good knowing it has been, and will continue to be in the family.

You can see a picture of it if you go on our website and click Mission. It runs well, but we need to get a plow for it so we can plant corn. I guess we need to determine how big a plow it can handle.

I find your website very interesting. We are going to want to purchase some Oliver Green Paint and a decal set for it soon.

I have just purchased an Oliver tractor here in England after falling in lov with it.
I am told it has Canadian origin.
At the moment i do not know exactly what make & model it is and hope you can help me out.
I am told it is a 770 - built 1960 - 6 cylinder - 2 spool valves.
Could you tell us where to find the serial number?
This would help us indentify the machine and assist us in soarcing the parts.
Can you help us with parts - genuine seat, guages etc.? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks.

Comments:Great Page and Links! I live in Northeast Tennessee, Jonesborough, and I their is an older couple talking about selling out their farm operation. Olivers are rare here, but they have an 1850 Diesel that I have used when working for them in the past! It's one tough tractor and I have been thinking about buying it and perhaps their entire farm if I can aquire the loan. Burley Tobacco was our main crop in this region, but it is dying out. I now farm aroung 50 acres and rent another 80 acres and run a beef cattle operation with my Dad in addition to working as a deputy sheriff. If I am lucky enough, or maybe crazy enough to save that place from becoming just another sub-divison I may need to get in touch with you for possilbe repair parts! Yes, some of us younger folks love farming and old tractors too! Merry Chrismas and Happy New Year to you and yours!

When done, she will sport Forest Green paint, Turbo Charger, electronic ignition, and Multi Port Fuel injection. My goal was never to restore her to original glory, but to bring her into the modern age. One could not ask for a more solid platform to start with.

I have a mid sized Haying operation out here, and next summer that tractor will handle a far share of the work load.

He kept it on the flatbed overnight, and I pestered until he unloaded it and went around the barn several times with lights and all, I never forgot that ride. I,ve been looking for years for the right buy. It is a '48-70RC w/wf. I got it at an estate auction last week, and touched it off today. What a sound, and what a thrill for an old 64 yr. old. I have the phone # of the family it came from and promised them the first parade ride. It need a grille. Any ideas? Thanks for letting me tell my story. Jim

In 1955 when I was 5 yrs. old my dad couldn'tget either one of my cousins to help with the spring plowing so he bought a brand new super 55 with a full mounted 3-14 bottom plow and we did all of the spring plowing together. That summer I also drove that tractor for all the baling we did. Thus my love affair for the " other green tractors" got started. To this day they are still my favorite!

Comments:Hello Larry, I enjoy reading all the articles, because I just purchased a 1962 Oliver 1600. This is my first Oliver tractor and was wondering where I can get parts such as a drawbar and a original seat. I would also like to find a owners manual so I can learn a little about it. After running the PTO for hour or so the bottom of the gear box starts smoking, any ideas on this problem.

I so greatly appreciate you discussing my fuel pump problem on my 880 Diesel.I will order the parts from Korves Bros as you recommend. Was also fun hearing you discuss visiting Stone's restaurant hear in Marshalltown my home town for 76 years and hearing that for a short time you lived in Marshalltown. Is this world getting smaller or what when you can run into a new friend from contacts on the internet and then to find that that new friend once lived in your hometown.
THANKS MUCH FOR YOUR HELP---GOD BLESS!!

I have been around tractors my whole life and never realized what a rich piece of our history they are, and its people like you that allow this tradition and knowledge to carry on to my generation and I just wanted to say thanks.

1. Seat and assembly (the original seat was adjustable front to back)

2. Radiator cap cover which hinge and which extends down over the nose of the tractor.

3. Screen that goes in front of the radiator.

On The property is all of their old farm equipmenmt just sitting their in the field and some in storage. In the barn is an Oliver Tractor. In the field are at least TWO more O livers - one with a planter attached.They are just sitting there in all kinds of weather, and we just finished Winter. I have no idea of the circumstances, but I'll be glad to show you where they are at.

Comments:I am 53 years old. My Grandfather was an Oliver dealer from approximately 1930 until sometime in the 1940s. I grew up on a Farm in South Central Nebraska. We used olivers and some John Deeres. Have always been interested in Olivers. 2 years ago I purchased the Oliver 77 that my uncle bought new in 1952. I have been using it to pull a windrower. Since it has a narrow front, that hasn[t been the best combination, so I have wishing for a wide front end for it. Well, I bought two tractors, not in very good condition, one 77 diesel, and one 88 gas, both with wide fronts, on that sale in Bridgeport Nebraska, recently. I also bought a 500 Oliver, diesel, on that sale. Just recently got them hauled home (about 250 miles) and did get the 500 running. The other two need quite a bit more work. I also have an 1800 diesel, an 1850 diesel that needs a lot of work, a 2050 diesel that needs to be parted out, some of which I want to use on the 1850. I also have a White 2-150 I presently use. I also have a brand new axle for a very old oliver or Hart Parr. It is something that sat around in the shed at my Dad's for 60 to seventy years. I asked my dad about when I was a kid and he said that it was sent to them back when My Grandfather was a dealer and was the wrong part or something like that. Any way it was never returned to the warehouse. It might be for an 18-27 or even something older, not sure. If someone could use it, it would be good. I like your website have browsed it some. Thats how I discovered the 500 was made by David Brown. Sorry if I am running on too much.

Comments:I grew up on a mixed farm (grain/dairy) in Manitoba, Canada. My Dad - 84 this year - still has two Oliver 88's one is a 1950 & the other 1951 - he & his Dad bought them. Used them for everything - us kids (six daughters)used to get recruited to drive them for all kinds of chores around the farm. Failing health has forced us to sell the farm - he's been there 68 years - and sell all the equipment. Tractors are in very good shape - until recently he still used them all year round for all kinds of jobs. Very sad for him to have to move & part with his tractors - he sold off everything else when he retired from farming - kept the tractors & his 1951 Fargo dump/grain truck. It's all gotta go - auction sale in June. Fond memories of that old equipment. You have a very nice website here!!!

They have started pulling out tree stumps with it. Last week my hubby popped a wheely. It scared him to death. My son started yelling "mom get the camera" LOL This is so fun finding out we have a rare Oliver. We had had other men in the area come to drool and others offer cash. My guys are in tractor heaven.

I have just restored my 6th Oliver. I am missing the 44, 55 and 99 of the Fleet Line. My son and I are the only "Oliver Man" in our area of Manitoba. My wife and I plan on taking a trip to your museum this spring I am looking forward to it.

Comments:Enjoyed your page keep up the good work. Unlike most of you I never grew up on a farm. I have been connected to farming as a fourth genteration food processor however. I convert those farm materails into consumer products. I picked up a 49 oliver 77 just to play around with as I liked the art deco looking hood. It got water into the oil so she is in many parts of the factory being brought back to life. If you come across a derelect airport tractor let me know. My restoration experience is in antique & classic airplanes so this is my first tractor. (Not much fabric covering required)It doesn't look like it will fly very well but is sure is a fine looking tractor. Brian McDonald

Comments:This is a wonderful website! I am so happy I found it.

As a young boy, I worked on a friend's parents dairy farm in Upstate New York (Montgomery County). The main tractor (and my personal favorite) was an Oliver 1755. I loved that tractor with it's Hydra Drive and the sound of its 6 cylinder diesel when it was running at PTO speed for the cutting and baling hay.

I have many summers of memories sitting on one of Ollie's big green fenders while his Dad drove talking, listening and watching as the bales were kicked into a hay wagon. I'll never forget the first time I drove Ollie and had occassion to pull out the Hydra Drive - what a shot of power!

Thanks for the memories and information!

Back to Indiana in time to see Seamus turn four, then graduate at Indiana Wesleyan on Saturday evening. School begins next week. I've been spending a lot of time setting up the rooms. My intermediate school is adding a Yamaha keyboard computer system this year, to get kids better acquainted with piano and general music skills. Looks pretty sharp in that pretty new school! Ralph and I discussed going via Amtrak together, but he's elected to hang here and keep the home fires burning. Jen and kids are here since Friday evening, they came to my concert last evening. Baby Kate is quite the singer, as it turns out. Seamus and she were just great throughout the program. Hope this finds you well! Elaine

He has had it running but now it sits in front of our place for people to see. He has not fully restored any of them, but all of them run except of course the parts tractor. He uses most of them on our place for various things. I think he would like to someday have all the Super Editons. Once again thanks for the info. I have found here.

the 1955 is running better all the time with your input...
i think i am getting interested more all the time in it...
we pulled it out of a brush pile after sitting there for 10 years in a very wet climate (western washingtion state)..
we pulled it a few feet and it was running, ie.. with a few
problems but running.. we now use it baling and pulling a 4 bottom plow... and thanks to you the oil in the hydraulic unit is staying out of the rear end.. we still have a bit to go on it, very enjoyable for a retired guy...

This was in the days when tractors were rationed and you had to get a pirority to purchase one and had to get on a waiting list and wait for your name to come up. There could be 30 40 or maybe 50 names on the list to buy any size that came in. This was for a certain make of tractor { MM JD IH or ect.} and not all makes. I was with my Dad when he bought a brand new Supper 66 Row Crop made in 1955 that came from the dealer with red wheels.Del Riel

Comments:Great Site Larry there is lots of helpfull information.

I would like to try to sell this Tractor Please See Description.

I have an Oliver 1850 Diesel wide front for sale. I bought this tractor as a project tractor but I can never find time to finish it. There are many new parts that I have bought for this tractor in trying to get it up and running. The previous owner had the head blow between #1 & 2 Pistons that was my starting point. I bought a different head and had new valve guides with reseated valves. The block was professionally reworked by a high performance engine shop (I have dealt with them on many engine projects both tractor and truck engine with no troubles after-words this shop knows their engines). I have a brand new exhaust manifold for the engine. I was told the engine preformed great up until the head let loose. The whole front end was rebuild spindles, NEW tires & tubes, NEW front rims, NEW tie rods. This tractor has 20.4 -38 rear tires yes they are tall with about 60% tread. Ones loaded the other is not. Those rims are in good condition. It has the three point arms, all the sheet metal (in good condition). The seat was shot but the frame is good. There are NO weights that go with this tractor. As long as I have owned this tractor it has been stored inside. This tractor needs an engine rebuild kit to get in back up and running. I am not going to part this tractor out because I feel that this is a good tractor for someone that will put some time into it to make it a great tractor. I am selling this AS IS you come pick it up. I am asking $3,000 OBO. I can supply pictures if anyone is interested please let me know I can help load.

He bought an Oliver 88 in 1953 and kept it until the late 90's when someone from Ohio bought it from him. For a whole year he could not sleep, he missed that tractor so much. So, he called the guy in Ohio, told him how bad he was missing his 88 and the guy said "Come on down and get it. Just pay me what I paid you". He won't be selling that Oliver again anytime soon! By the way, he lives near Clinton, Ontario, Canada

Comments:Enjoyed your pics on website. My dad farmed with Olivers since buying his first in 1965, an 1850 that we still have. He then bought another '66 model 1650, but traded it for a '66 model 1850 because of the horsepower difference. We still have this tractor also. In 1980 we bought a White 2-135 which I still own that has only 1700 actual hours, as we sold out our dairy and rented the farm. These tractors were cheaper than John Deeres and always outperformed them on better fuel consumption. I miss the good old days of farming Thanks, Terry

My father had three of these at one time. Man , was we ever turnin' ground over then. Funny thing, you know I never new what "down time" was until we started farming with newer machinery when I was about 22 years old. Dad knew and loved his Olivers.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Our soils are tough in OK but I am able to pull an old Oliver 3 bottom roll over plow at about 4 mph without lugging the motor. This tractor is my main power for cutting and baling prairie hay, and haygrazer. It has some quirks but that is what it's all about.

They were primary used for threashing machines which all came from Scotland and England, mostly teff and maize. These machines were generally built by Ransomes. the Oliver tractors did a full days work right up to the 1990's and one still remains in the family - the 80. The others were sold and I have lost track of them.

My Father was a truck farmer in Palm Beach county, Fla. We had 2 Olivers - a 1600 and a 1650 - I used to drive some for him, mostly in the summer, pulling the disk. There was a machine that we called a 'ditcher' - it was used to make drainage cross cuts thru the beds that we grew the crops on - it had a three point (correct term?) hitch and ran off the pto - well, anyway, it was extremely hard to hook up to, because of the short arms, and I like to say that I always learned a few new words :) whenever we had to use it.

I also owned White American 70, two 2-105, 2-150, 2-180 and 4-210. When White went bankrupt, I traded everything for Case. Unfortunately I didn't keep any of my Olivers.

Comments:I learned to drive on a Oliver 60 at age and have owned the following Olivers: 66, two 77, two 88, Super 77, 550, 770, 880, 1900 GM, a 1650, three 1850, and two 2255s. I also owned White American 70, two 2-105, 2-150, 2-180 and 4-210. When White went bankrupt, I traded everything for Case. Unfortunately I didn't keep any of my Olivers. I purchased a 1951 77 wide front diesel that I had restored in '05. It brings back wonderful memories of my dad. The Oliver 77, 1850, and the 2255 were the finest tractors ever built in their era! I'm searching for an Oliver 60 wide front row crop.

With the whole internet at my fingertips, the one place I go after checking my work E-mail and responding is Larry Harsin' Oliver Tractors. You are a class act. A great place for us Oliver Junkies to gather information. After eight years working for Beavers Implement from 68 to 76 and four years as a White Territory Manager from 76 to 80 and a year as their Product Training Manager for tractors and harvesting in 1980 I feel I have the right to bestow upon you the title of Supreme Oliver Service Manager Worldwide.

Keep up the good work.

He never got to the task of getting it done.
One day I saw the tractor sitting on the corner of his property with flat tires.The front tires are wide apart.
I bought it as a long term project.The starter is missing and the crank turns a little one way and back alittle the other.Can I get parts and instruction manuales That won't cost me an arm and a leg?Either way I'll fix it.Thanks Larry Bowen

I replaced most of the electrical components (points, rotor, plugs, distrib. cap, wires, resister,battery cable wires, battety) as well as putting in a new carb kit...then the starter switch got hot and quit.

Comments:Dear Larry, Thanks for such a nice website. I am relatively new to Olivers. I was born and raised driving Persian Orange, but many of our extended family had Olivers and I know them to be good tractors. Just bought a 1939 Oliver 70 RowCrop for a friend. I believe it to be a rare find. Had same owner for 37 years! It was his High School Ag project. Although he didn't farm, he has some acreage and would drive it around a couple of times a year. It appears to be very complete, with lights, the big ones with flat lens, has belt pulley, and flat spoke wheels. It even has twin stacks. It also came with a 1951 1058 or 1096 four row cultivator, which we have no use for. If you know anyone that would be interested, please pass it along. Also I have a 1943 70, both tractor leak oil around the mains, someone said that is how you know it is a good Oliver....they all do that, is that so? One more thing, the 43 needs brakes badly...is there a way to get to them under the steel plate the seat is mounted to? Or do you have to remove the final drive? Well, thanks again for a place novices can go to learn more about the other green tractors. I truly am falling in love with the sound of those 6 cyliners! Steve Wilkens

I found my first copy of Oliver heritage. Read your ask the Oliver mechanic and said to myself. There is an ol'boy with a lot of hands on experience. I did some time at Ziegler and Wimberly shop in Tulia, Texas. They sold Mf also. But I couldn't develop any bonding with them like with the Olivers. We were selling mostly 1850 & 1950T RC. It was too bad White never could manage their empire.
Keep up your good Work. Maybe I will find me a T to play with. If I do and have a problem. I know who has the answer.

Comments:I grew up on a dairy farm in upstate New York. My favorite tractor was our old Oliver 88 Row Crop. With a gasoline engine, it started in all weather. With six cylinders, its engine hummed. It made a whining sound when it moved, rather like an old man who rather sit by the fire than get up and walk. It had a pulley on the side, for which we had no use. I always wished I could find a use for that pulley. The hydraulic system was primitive and didn't work anymore, so we couldn't use it for much except hauling wagons or running the blower. Still, I wanted to run that tractor above all others.

I live in New York City now. I don't get to drive tractors often. My parents still have the farm, but not the Oliver. That was traded in years ago. Someday, perhaps I'll get drive one again, maybe show my little son the whiny, gas-powered, hummming machine that started in all weather. I could swear it had a soul. Thanks for the memories.

After trying replacing the broken springs and ball bearings in the shifting rods controller, which seemed like it would fix the problem, I'm still stuck in gear or in between gears. Does the set screws for the springs need a specific tension on them or do you just make them real tight? Is there another fix which might address this problem?

Comments:Enjoy visiting your web site with all it's links.
Have bought soom parts from you in the past and have been pleased with the service and parts.

I have an Oliver 88 Row Crop with a wide front end. Have a second place up in NW Minnesota by Fergus Falls that I use the tractor on. With the loader we have been building a rock retaining wall but a recent storm that passed through the area up rooted 19 plus trees on the place so Olie has been doing duty hauling large tree trunks out of the woods.

The tractor was converted to an Altenator and 12 volts, do you know if it was a pos. ground originally and should it be that way with the altenator. The Altenator now is a Delco/REmy 1100834-37A OE26 12V Neg.

Thanks,

Ed

Comments:I really enjoy your collumn in the OH mag. That brings me to ask you about a situation with a '46 Oliver 70 I purchased a while back. I was told that someone previous to the guy I purchased it from was going to make a puller out of it, so what all they did to it is anybodys guess. One of the "modifications" was to replace the carburator with a carb that had the actuating arm pointing up as opposed to the standard down. Then they crossed the throttle linkage under the tank so the rod to the governor lever pushed instead of pulled. (Screwy, huh?) I restored the linkage to original. The carb appears to be "larger" than the carb on the '47 model 70 I purchased later. The result of their screwing around was that when you pulled the throttle lever down two notches the engine would rev full out immediately. (Not good) So I took the carburator off the '47 and put it on the 46. It started fine, but it still revs full when you pull the throttle a couple of notches. I'm thinking those "mekanix" must of screwed up the governor inside someway. There is no evidence that has been done but I think they may have painted over it, if they actually did do something inside. The '47 is not running so I haven't been able to compare the two. Do I have you screwed up enough (too much) or do you have a solution for me. It's a fairly good looking old 70 and I'd like to get it in decent shape so I can sell it as I want to get the '47 model restored. I have two of the three tractors that my Dad ever owned, a '45 John Deere H and an Oliver 770 ( 1959 model) and the '47 70 that is similar to the one he traded in on the 770. I tried to find it but ran into a dead end so I acquired a similar one.

Well, a long story but if you could help me on that one I'd really appreciate it. My biggest problem with Olivers is how they could have the best tractors around at one time and now be out of business. Some body did not play their cards well.

Thank you!

In 1980 I became Product Training Manager for combines for White Farm after selling 10 of the first 50 9700 "Harvest Boss" combines to come off the line. I went down with the ship when the August of 1980 bankruptcy hit White Farm. Still love my Olivers and just bought a 1550 to restore. I'll probably be needing a little advice from time to time, however, after working on them for the better part of eight years, I think it will all come back to me.

When he asked me to marry him we went for a ride on his 77 then out to the woods where his family makes maple syrup, and I said yes. I would really like to decorate our downstairs bathroom in Oliver for him, but I am having trouble finding anything. (It's not as popular as other tractors, I guess.) Do you know where I could find Oliver fabric to make a shower curtain?

Comments:I have a 1942 Oliver Crawler that i just got on 2/16/2005
and am going to need some parts to get it working like new again. It runs and moves through all the gears ok, but it is going to need some work. I don't have a blade for it, or a book. I need to see a picture of one of that year so I can tell what it is supose to look like. If you could direct me to a WEB site where I could get some books and pictures of this piece of equipment, it would be a big help.
Thank You, Phillip

I have a 1550 Diesel utility it is a decent little tractor having grownup red it's different then I was used to. Have had her for about 4 years now, time to have done some work to it, new hydraulic pump, had to weldup a shift rail, last year went through it, new rings, bearings, seals gaskets, clutch, pressure plate, PTO drive hub and shaft, rebuilt the Hydro-power, PTO clutch, rebuilt infectors and refurbished power cells, and then I had to modify the oil pan to hold more oil and handle steep hills better.

The 1850 is in parade condition, runs great, new paint, straight sheet metal, new rear tires, etc. The 1655 is good mechanical but needs paint. I am probably going to sell all three. I hate it, but priorities change. Where is the best place to sell? Internet, Hart Parr Magazine, etc? Thanks in advance for a reply.

I use them all in my farming operation. The 2150 is the biggest tractor I have ever owned. I bought it at an estate sale 3 miles from my house after sitting in the shed for almost 10 years. I wondered at the time and my neightbors thought I was crazy but I think I made a good investment. It runs great and is a brute. It is the only 2150 in Benton County, Iowa. I hope to get all three tractors restored with new paint and all are in great mechanical shape. I hope down the road to find an 880 and maybe an 1850 gas for a loader tractor. My dad is C.H. Wendel who wrote the hardback Oliver book. Enjoy your site. Steve

Comments:Hello Larry,
I just walked in and am taking a break...I just finished painting the Super 77 that I got from you back in April and am in the process of taking the masking tape off and reassembling the machine. I hope it will be okay, I had problems with the primer...oh well. There is a local fair coming up this week and I am hoping to take this and the FFA tractor to display along with the Antique tractor club that always exhibits there. Will send a picture when I finally roll the 77 out of the shop. all for now.

Comments:I love everything that says oliver on it !! My dad bought is first oliver super 88 when he moved to Wi. in 1956. He moved from Stillwater Mn. to Milltown Wi. He had a new super m and it couldn't pull the 3 bottm plow up the clay hills. The local coop told him take the oliver home and try it. NO PROBLEM!!! needless to say the super m was gone that afternoon. we have had many olivers since and still have some. my dad passed away in 1997, i have the super 88. between me and my 2 brothers we have the super 88,660 wide front, 550,880D,1650D, 1855D. I am picking up a OC3 cletrac next week. I hope I didn't bore you with my little story, sincerely TERRY L JENSEN

I sure think the super C Farmall on you web page is a sharp looking smaller tractor! Probably too big for our acreage tho. We are looking into a swisher mower to keep things tidy. We had a letter from Shirley saying Kay has calves coming now...won't be long and he will be in the field again. Really like looking at your web pages! Paul & Betty Karr

Comments:Hi Larry. Wanted to sign your guestbook and let you know how much I appreciate your help. I grew up on my Grandfathers farm and we've always had Olivers. I love'em and I've never been on anything else. As I grew older I somehow became the resident mechanic. My Grandfather is 79 now and we're just about out of farming. With any luck I'll be able to get a few of the tractors from the farm when he's done with them. Here's a list of what we've got.
1)60RC, 1)70RC, 2)77RC, 1)88RC with a loader,
1) 1600 Diesel RC, 1) 1800 Diesel RC, 1) 1855 Diesel and assorted implements. The 550 I've been working on is my Father-in-laws. All but the 70 are running. It's almost a full time job keeping that great old stuff working, but I wouldn't trade them for anything. Again, Thank you. Gary

Comments:Larry: Love your website, was interested in all info about 550 olivers, as I have a 1959 model. I have the opportunity to purchase a white oliver 2-44 which is actually a 550. It has a 4 speed transmision and a shuttle. I am concerned with the unavailability of parts in the event I might need any for that transmission. The tractor has been repainted Oliver Green and has a 588 loader on it. Tires are 13.6 x 28 (90%) and 750.16. It is also a Diesel. It has a 6 ft bucket. Also has pto. $6,400 plus 800 shipping. Your opinion and comments would be greatly appreciated. I will be using it mostly to maintain a 1/2 mile long driveway summer and winter and also work up fire lanes etc on my property. I grew up on a farm but I am a retired professional firefighter and also a heating and cooling installer and serviceman - carpenter - handyman etc etc. Also, would the museum have an up to that date manual for that unit?

Comments:Larry I sure am glad to see some one still has a love for oliver tactors like I do.My dad had a 77 & a 66 when I was a kid. The 77 was my brothers & the 66 was mine so we thought when we were kids. My dad had to sell them both when he quit farming & times got tough. I said I'd get my tractor back someday. It only took me 15 years but it now sets in my shop.I'm in the process of doing a super 66 over right now thats how I found your web site when I was looking for parts. keep the OLIVER running sincerly Brian

The tractor is functional and offers much joy and sentimental value. It's nice to make your acquaintance, especially with folks that know and love Olivers.
I do have some questions but will go to your special place for them.
Thanks and Stay well.

YOU DONT HOLD THE RECORD "BY YER SELF" OF BEING BORN ON AN OLIVER.

AS YOU CAN SEE, MY DAD WAS POWER HUNGARY AND HE ALWAYS CHALKED UP HIS SUCCESS IN FARMING TO THE OLIVER TRACTORS.
BEING RETD I WOULD JUST LOVE TO GET MY HANDS ON A SUPER 88 GAS N/F SO I COULD EDUCATE THE JOHN LOVERS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, WITH A BASIC STOCK ENGINE, BUT AM FINDING IT COST PROHIBITIVE.

Comments:Greetings from Cusseta, Alabama.
I grew up on a farm in an isolated community in central Illinois. One of the first things I remember in the late 50's was my dad and his brother had ferguson 30s. But my other uncle had an Oliver 66 diesel, dad would comment something like, "that Oliver is just a better horse"!
About 4 years ago now I spotted a 66 for sale in East Texas, after doubling back and looking at it carefully, it had too many issues for me to deal with, besides it was a gas.
Just don't see that model anywhere anymore. Well here's wishing for you and yours, the very best the good life offers. LK Lorton

Thank you for providing this excellent site. Although I know very little about Oliver tractors, I admired them growing up. One of the most successful farmers in our area farmed with Olivers, and I made the association that Olivers must be the best.

I currently have a Rowcrop 60, a Super 77 gas, and an 1850 diesel. I use the 1850 regularly as a loader tractor. The 60 and S77 are awaiting restoration.

Comments:Great site Larry, just found you last night and posted a question about gear pattern, couldnt believe I had an answer within minutes!
I bought my first tractor on recommendation of an old friend, after I moved to an acreage and needed somthing to move snow. He said Oliver tractors were way ahead of their time, and that was the only way to go. So I watched the classifieds and auctions, and finally found an auction in Jamestown ND where I bought my wide front row crop 88 with farmhand loader. Its in real nice shape, some day I hope to tear it apart and restore it, in the mean time....its takin pretty good care of me and the snow!
I've already set my sights on possibly a newer Oliver with power steering and 3pt hitch so I can plow my large garden.
Thanks again Larry, you'll be seeing more of me around here!

Comments:I own an Oliver 1955. I bought it in 1994 and paid $7250.00 for it. I've done some work to repair and improve it's preformance. It has worked real well for me for these past nine years and I am very pleased with it and just think it is a very fine machine. I do have a question that I hope you can help me with.... the two lift arms of the three point hitch fall rapidly when I shut off the tractor and also under load they drop unless I have the engine running at high rpms (1600 +). Do I have a leak past the lift cyl. piston seals?? Do I need to replace the piston cup seals? and what does that involve? Please get back to me and advise. I made some adapter brackets and mounted an International front end loader on my Oliver. It made a great tractor an even better and more useful piece of equipment for me. Thank you for your fine web site and I am one big fan of the Oliver tractor.

I am an Iowa farm girl (Winterset)and just moved to Colorado last January. This area north of Denver has lots of truck gardens and after I thought about it's design, I wondered if it was run down the rows of onions to weed and mulch. Set up like a disc, the blades have about 3" points all around and some are set at an angle (something like these hash marks) ! \/ !!!\/ ! If you have any ideas, please email me at Vstuarthill@aol.com. The equipment was a series 255, Model # 1816 Thanks for your time

I just sold the 550 and I hope the 1650 gives as good of service. The model #365-21024 and serial # 195 725-452 on the 1650. I think is a 1967 but I don't know what all the other numbers mean any help would be apprecated. Thank you great site.

I was clearing some brush when I upended a tree limb. Guess what? It went straight into the front of my crankcase leaving a hole three inches in diameter! I saw it immediatly and shut the engine down. Shouldn't be any internal damage, just a pain to drop the oil pan, repair it and put the pan back on. Clearly, the operator's fault, and not a tractor failure!

I farmed with it for two years. I still have it 38 years later. It is in bad need of a paint job; but it has always started right off when ever I have need to use it or play with it, no mater how long it has sat. It is a 1947, the same year I was born. My problem is I also have a 47 Chevy that I like to work on and drive; so my Oliver takes second place on my limited work schedule.

Comments:Larry,
Terrific web site. I appreciate your efforts to keep the Oliver spirit alive!
I purchased my first tractor in 9th grade, an Oliver 550. This was to be the first of many that I would repair repaint and sell. It was purchased with wages earned working for a farmer with two 1755Õs.
The 550 was fixed and repainted. But... It dabbled in a small farming stint which lasted until I went to college. It then sat unused for about 10 years in dadÕs shop. Eventually dad sold all my other equipment but kept the 550. About six years ago I took it back from dad. I had just purchased a house and small plot of land. This tractor now mows our lawn and an elderly neighborÕs lawn, tills the garden, plows snow and even pulls my daughterÕs sled around the property in the winter.
It is definitely not competing with the neighbors small compact utilities, with all the latest cup holders, the nice flat operator platform that all the KubotaÕs DeereÕs etc etc have, but I would not trade this tractor for anything.
Heck, the neighbors brand new John Deere compact utility, geared transmission doesnÕt even have a live PTO.
Sincerely,
Dave Pease

Comments:Sir,
I really enjoy your website. I go to your site every day. I am Gunnery Sergeant in the United states Marine Corps, currently stationed in Japan. Your web site gives me joy and keeps in touch with farming. I grew up on a farm in UpState New York. When I retire from the Marine Corps I will have farm and couple of Olivers. I really like your 1955T that you have. I am a big fan of the 880 dsl and the 1755. Two very tough tractors.
Thank you for have such a wonderful wbsite

I wanted to thank you for some help you gave me last week as I was trying to locate some "rare" Oliver 550 tractor parts. You gave me the name of Tom Sbhemper at O'Brian County Implement. Tom was amazing at finding discontinued parts by knowing how to crosscheck with the other brands of tractors. He was an exceptionally nice man and a real jewel of a find . Thank you for your web site.

Comments:Still have a soft spot in my heart for Olivers. Learned to farm on an Oliver 70 in 1948-9. Grandfather bought right after the war in 1945, and sold it in 1950. I found it about 10 years ago and brought it back home. It still has the original synthetic rubber tires on the rear. It's next on the list for restoration. Other Olivers on the farm include: 60's, 70's 66, 77, 88, 1650, 1850's, 1855, and a 2255. Still farm with some of them and a 2-180 & 4-180.
I retired as President of Indiana Farm Bureau at the end of 2001 and now have a little more time to work in the shop.
Wish you the best there in Iowa.

God bless,

I enjoy looking at all the photos and I am currently in the market for another Oliver. Hoping to find a 1650 or 55 or 1755 with diesel preferably.

Comments:My brother and I are going into our second childhood, as our wives and children tell us, by getting back to our past by restoring our Father's farm equipment, all Oliver equipment. We are restoring the 77 tractor, unique as it was a demo tractor with all the bells and whistles loaded on it for its time. Plus the impliments will be restored next that are roughly the same age and in great condition as our Father stored all impliments inside and took great care of them. Recently, we purchased an used 1650 diesel tractor for use around the farm so the 77 can become a show tractor. We are taking the 1610 Oliver bucket loader off the 77 and putting it on the 1650. However, we have a couple of problems locating parts and information. We have tried the impliment dealers that use to sell Olivers and they come up empty. Here is what we are looking for:

Good condition steering wheel for the 1650.

Rear brackets or photo showing what the rear brackets looked like for installing the 1610 loader on the 1650.

For the 77 we need 2 front end (wide front end)rubber cushions. Old ones have cracked and half way broken off.

Lastly, the 1650's engine is missing and lately lots of blue smoke (oil). The engine block is clean as a whistle and no signs of bad seals. My guess might be injectors need cleaning or overhauling? Injector pump recently rebuilt and all lines are pumping fuel when checked. Possible needs a ring job? What is your feeling on this problem. I will add that the previous owner of the 1650 let it sat around over the last 5 years with no attention. It still had the same oil, filters, and diesel fuel when purchase from his estate. We changed the oil and filters (fuel and oil). We noticed the blue exhaust after changing the oil and filter?

Thank you for any help you can give us and it is fun being a kid again. Only hope that Dad doesn't see us in the same light and make us go out and pick those stones again! Not sure our bodies would let us do that kind of work anymore!

Have a great day!

Comments:I send an e-mail asking for some mechanical advise. We are in a area in Oklahoma where Olivers are rare I was born and raised at Waterloo Iowa and have been at the old Oliver plant in Charles City. In fact I had a confrontation with the plant manager ,in is office, over a tractor I had purchased and I won. It was over a new 66 diesel I had purchased. Every so many hours the crackshaft would break. I went to Alva W Phillips who was president of Oliver at the time. He got in touch with the manager of the plant and told him that they were to fix that tractor at no cost to me. They got it fix and the block man came by and picked me up to take me to the plant. When we got there I was escorted to the managers office. I beleive is last name was Bird. He informed me that if I wanted my tractor back I would have to pay one-half of the repair bill. He was a big man setting behind a big half circle desk. I was a 21 year old farm kid. You can imagine what I told him. I looked at the block man and told him to take me home. He asked me what I was going to do. I told him I was going to call Mr. Phillips and tell him what had happened. He aked me to wait a little while. We got home and in a little while the phone rang and it was Mr. Phillips telling me that my tractor was on a truck headed to me and there was no charge. Many years later I found out what had happened. They had had several tractors that had been parked in vacant lot around Charles City. At Halloween The local kids had started them up with no coolant in the engine and they ran till they overheated and the engines froze up. The manager had them taken back in a repaired and told no one about. The one I had receive had got so hot that the main bore was out of align. The plant managerhad to admit what had happened and there was several tractors that got recalled.
Enough chatter/

Until May 22, 2003, I was a very proud owner of an Oliver-Cletrac, Model "E," then it was stolen from me in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The thieves will be seeking a gas tank and the tank mounts because I took my tank off to have it dipped and the inside coated.

Whoever took my Cletrac will be needing a Magneto as well, I took mine off to have it reconditioned.

My tractor was stolen from 3525 Victory Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45229, at approximately 3:30 in the afternoon.The thieves may also be seeking side panels because mine were not on the tractor at the time of the theft.

My tractor's Serial Number is 8R 14

My phone number is (513) 977- 0647

I would be most grateful and very beholding to anyone that may be able to give me any lead(s) towards recovering my Cletrac.


Reward Offered

Many Thanks,

Comments:I have an Oliver 70 row crop tractor that belonged to my father. Ser. no. 247499 We think is is the early 50"s. The motor is in very good shape and runs good. The hood and side panels are fair. The fenders are in poor shape. We are looking for someone who might be interested in it for parts or restoration. We have not been able to find any 40 in. tires. So decided to let someone else have the tractor. If you know a web page or where we might advertize it, we would appreciate hearing from you. We live in the west panhandle of Texas. Thanks

I recently purchased a 1951 77 with good tin and motor from the farmer who purchased it new so it had good care. I am replacing both intake and exhaust manifolds. How much torgue should I apply when tighting the bolts? I live in central Illinois. Thanks,Bob.

Comments:I just purchased my first Oliver Tractor, a 1965 880 6 cyl gas. It was auctioned off in Northern MN. with a new paint job minus being fully reconditioned and restored. None the less this old Oliver has been taken through it's paces, clearing brush and stumps with it's leaky cylinders on it's front end loader. Enjoyed your sight and plan on coming back for discussions posted as I'm an Oliver novice looking for the experts experience and advice. They don't run by nuclear propulsion so they can't be that complicated for me to fix with a good tech. manual, parts and an old timer or two that know what they are doing and share what they have learned.

Comments: I just so happened across an Oliver Super 55,It's in good shape,but I need to find a drawing of the tranny. The shifter pops out of first and reverse. I'm afraid to open it up with out seeing how it is put together. When I was little my father had trouble with an Alis-Chalmers. If you lifted the tranny cover more than an inch or so, you would lose a part or two to the bottom of the tranny.
