We don't have a catalog for the used parts etc. we sell. I'm wondering if you mean a Parts Manual. They will have all 3 Manuals for your tractor at the Floyd Co. Museum in Charles City, IA (Where the tractors were built). Call the Museum at 641-228-1099. An Operator's Manual, A Service Manual, A Parts Manual. Some of the Service Manuals seem a bit high, but sometimes they are for more than one tractor. They may have a Build Card for your tractor. There was a computer going down the assembly line beside your tractor. When they put some things into your tractor, they would punch the computer. I believe it is $30 to get a copy of this card. One of the things it will tell you are the first dealership that sold the tractor. And many other things. I hope this info is helpful. Sandra Harsin
Oliver 88 row crop
Posted by Kurt Weinheimer [Email User] on April 25, 2017, 7:23 am 220.127.116.11
Larry, I posted this problem in early April,but I did not hear back so I thought I'd try again. The gear shift on my 88 is very loose. When you put it in reverse,low range, the shifter hits the steering column & the dash. I pulled the shifter and could see nothing wrong! Is there supposed to be bushings or something that"tightens"it up and if there is where would I find them? P.S. I can't even get in reverse in high range ! Kurt

Sometimes if the mechanism isn't worn too much, I have taken the torch and heated the shift lever in about midway and bend it a bit away from the dash so that it won't hit the dash. This is a common problem. On the other hand, if there seems to be a lot of wear on the lever and shift tower, I could supply you one that is in better condition to start with. Give me a call: 712-362-2966. Larry

Why do some Oliver 77's and 88's have a Pre-Cleaner Cap above the Hood and some don't? Does it have something to do with the date made or a difference in the engine? Was it a Factory Option? What's the advantage of having the Cap above the Hood?
With that said, I don't know enough about these Tractors. Do the others have a Cap? It's just under the Hood?
I am a small time Tractor Collector and have been searching for a 77 or 88 to add to my collection for a few years now. I kind of like the Pre-Cleaner up through the Hood look. I'm sure there will be several say that the Tractor looks sleeker without it but I just like it.
Posted by Larry Harsin on April 20, 2017, 8:20 am, in reply to "Pre-Cleaner" 22.214.171.124
What prompted some of the older users of these tractors, was the use of a mounted corn picker. They used Pre-cleamer caps on the older tractors to make them work better. Larry
1948 Oliver Row Crop Engine Stalling
Posted by Travis Shives on April 18, 2017, 9:54 pm 126.96.36.199
Hello my grandfathers 1948 Oliver Row Crop seems to have an issue that I cant seem to exactly pinpoint. It starts up and idles ok for a few minutes and when it seems to get warmed up (after 3-4 minutes of running), it almost sounds like there is a miss and when I move the governor idler control arm down (to give more throttle) and put it into gear, it starts to move maybe 6-8 feet and starts to dies out and sometimes if I give it a little more gas to keep it idling in neutral after the almost stall out, I'm seeing what looks to be an ember/coal emit from the exhaust stack (very small and minimal).....any ideas on what this could be?? I did clean the carburetor out with the cleaner (where I could get) but did not attempt to take it off and rebuild it as I am no expert in that field and wasn't sure if this was the problem or not. When I attempted my cleaning, I was able to run the tractor for about 3/4 minutes without issue but still sounded like a small miss and then all of a sudden the same thing happened. I left it sit for a few minutes, started it up and was able to move it about 10-20 feet.....shut it down & waited & was able to move 10-20 more feet...& repeated until it was back in the garage.
Thanks for All Your Help,

Also it is a Zenith carburetor from what I can see and a 6 speed transmission. I did not a screw on the carb that appears for be maybe an idle set and it is screwed all the way (not sure that's right) in and a little bar looking thing that turned all the way out (I'm assuming this leave something "wide open" so to speak & not sure where that should be set either) - thanks again!!

Very carefully! Ha! First, you will have to remove the wheel from the axle. Then, remove the bolts that hold the bearing out at the end of the housing and the axle should slide out. You may want to get a Shop Manual for a 99 from the Museum in Charles City. 641-228-1099. Larry

1950 power steering

I have a 1950 that has become very difficult to steer, the hydraulic lift is working. This problem started the last time I used the tractor. The hydraulic oil was a bit low. Now the steering wheel is very difficult to turn and then I can only get slight movement of the front wheels. What would you suggest to look at first?

Posted by Larry Harsin on April 14, 2017, 8:00 am, in reply to "1950 powe steering " 18.104.22.168
You may have a sticky regulator spool in the power steering flow divider. Run your engine about half throttle and wiggle the hydraulic remote levers back and forth. If this doesn't help, you may have to remove the regulator spool and check for a burr on it or some foreign material. Larry

white 1370 wont start
Posted by crazyhorsemd on April 11, 2017, 6:19 am 220.127.116.11
I have a white 1370 4 cyl diesel bought 6 years ago Always seems hard to start. after 7-8 tries the battery doesn't seem to have enough power to turn over. In the past, a shot (literally) of ether would help. Lately, once started, runs for 30 minutes then slowly loses power and dies then wont start for day or two. New battery w/ 1000 CCA still hard to start. no new smoking issues. Love the tractor but can be a pain to start. Any advice appreciated Thanks Crazyhorsemd

American Bosch PSB4 injection pump
Posted by Kevin Brown on April 10, 2017, 8:44 pm 22.214.171.124
This question is specifically about the PSB 4 injection pump more than the tractor. It would be the same pump used on Supper 55 diesel for example. The pump on the 1954 year D 201 continental engine produces a miss but cannot be traced to a single cylinder as they all respond alike when you crack the injection line. It also wet stacks and produces very little smoke. Have tested the injectors, double checked the timing and had the head rebuilt as part of the restoration. Should not be a valve issue. This machine sat for many years so I have no history on it. All filters are new and supply line pressure is at 15 lbs as the manual calls for.
It had grown steadily worse after a couple hours run time so I thoroughly cleaned the pump after finding very fine material buildup around the high pressure check valve.
I believe it is either the hydraulic head is worn out or the high pressure check valve or spring is bad. Of course I would prefer the valve and spring to the head cost wise.
After cleaning the pump it does run better but still have the miss and no smoke so wet stacking is still taking place. Basically it took me back to the running condition shortly after first start up.
This engine has the pre combustion chamber system of ignition. What has been your experience with these pumps?

1855 Oliver hydraulic pump noisy
Posted by Andy on April 7, 2017, 11:32 pm 126.96.36.199
I changed hydraulic fluid last year in September. Ever since then the hydraulic pump has been extremely noisy. Like it is getting air somewhere. It does get worse when brakes are applied and worse when steering wheel is moved. It also get really hot fast like in 5minutes of just idling. I have checked the pump on the side by the fuel pump that pump is working fine. I have checked the bleeder valve with air to see if seat got cracked. I have checked filter canister for tightness and proper torque. I don't see any major leaks. I'm ready to sell this thing, I like it but what a pain.

You say that the pump become noisy after you changed the hydraulic oil. This causes me to wonder if you put the proper fluid in it. The oil has to go through that filter before it gets to that pump and if the oil is too thick, it will cavitate. White specifies type 55 or equivalent oil. Larry

Hello Larry: I have a 1955 Super88 diesel. It starts and runs fine except it makes a popping sound that increases in frequency with the engine revs. I think it may be a stuck valve.

1950T Transmission problems
Posted by Aaron Karaszewski on April 3, 2017, 10:45 pm 22.214.171.124
Hello Larry, I am thinking of possibly trying to buy a 1968 Model 1950T from a local auction taking place near me. I am just trying to kind of figure what could possibly be wrong with it. So I have an idea what I am getting into if I do happen to aquire this tractor. Someone at sometime has put in a 5.9 cummins with the original 3 speed hydra power unit. I assume the original 310ci didn't make it! Anyway the problem is that the tractor will not move forward or back. The engine does run and sounds good, I had a chance to check it out this past weekend. The tractor is advertised as needing a clutch and runs but does not move, will go into gear. With the engine running the chain coupler does spin at the back of hydra-power and the input shaft of the transmission also spins as it should. There does seem to be some noise coming from that area, I am thinking that maybe just coupler alignment there is not bolt in the bottom to adjust it. The tractor does seem to go into different gears but nothing happens. Pushing the clutch in or letting it out does not seem to make any difference and engine load does not change when engaging/disengaging clutch. The coupler spins all the time regardless of clutch position. Could the transmission input shaft be broken or the splines are gone? The rear end does not seem to be locked up, because the tractor was towed around the farm lot and there is no signs of tires dragging. I believe there is more issues than just a burn out clutch. Is that a possibility of the input shaft be the problem? Or is that not common problem? The other thing I noticed is that the steering did not seem to work while the tractor was running leading me to believe the hydraulic pump is not working. Could that be part of the same problem if the shaft is broken then the gear would not turn the pump? I did not think of trying the three point to see if that worked or not. Any info that you could give me would be great and maybe help my decision to try and get the tractor or not. Also I would need a hood a side panels for this tractor. Someone hacked up the hood to try and make a different fuel tank work and also the air cleaners fit under the hood where the turbo inlet pipe is. The side panels are completely missing. Would you have any of this sheet metal available for sale? It has twin pre cleaners on it. I also have a few 1800 questions but Ill save that for a different post. Thanks again Aaron
