1950 front end swap

Posted by Nick on July 30, 2018, 8:41 pm

Switching out a wide front for a narrow front on a 1950. Is there a bolt that holds the steering shaft in the steering cylinder? How do you go about getting to the bolt if there is and if there isnít whatís holding it from coming out?

Thanks!

Yes. You remove the top cover from the steering cylinder. There is a plug in the sector with an O ring that you pry out. The sector is secured to the steering post that has a puller bolt. It uses an inch and an eight socket. The bolt should be tight when you start. When you unscrew the bolt, it will get tight again. Keep unscrewing and it will pull the sector from the post. Then you can remove the front end from the tractor. Larry


Oliver 62t Baler plunger problem

Posted by Greg on July 27, 2018, 8:48 pm

Iím excited I found your website!! I have an Oliver 62t baler that has been so good. Never missing a knot. Unfortunately I was unable to do my hay the last two years. I went to use it a couple weeks ago figuring I would just hook up and go. The plunger was stuck. I got it to move just a little but it almost stalls the tractor. It goes all the way back and forth but obviously canít be used that way. Is there any chance I can free it up and what is the best way to do that? Iíve had a few balers over the years but Iíve never had to work on the plunger. Your advice is greatly appreciated!

I would spuirt on some diesel or used oil on it and keep working it until it comes loose. Larry

I had a Oliver 620 Wire. On the plunger there are several small roller bearings that can go bad and will cause plunger to drag. Previous poster right about best way to start and don't skimp on diesel or oil.

The 62 balers did not have roller bearings on plunger, bearings first showed up on the 620 baler plunger. The 62 is steel plunger on steel frame so if it sat for that timeframe, probably has some rust keeping things tight. They are correct, keep using plenty of lubricant and oil to work the plunger loose. Best to coat the plunger/frame area with a lubricant before putting away for the winter each season to avoid this issue in the future.


1755 will not move

Posted by Genz on July 24, 2018, 12:12 pm

Got the transmission opened up. Think we have a lower gear welded to input shaft. Trying to get input shaft out. It appears we can drive this entire assembly forward (towards engine) to force front bearing and race out (that live in rear main frame). We have only been successful in moving the bearing and race 1/8"...it seems it doesn't want to move any further...if this lower gear is welded to the input shaft, is this shaft coming out? if not, then what is our next move..torch? This all started when I was traveling down the road, suddenly the engine come under an extreme load for not reason, I depressed the clutch and the rear tires skidded to a stop. We have found there is no oil pressure from the internal lube pump, therefore, we think we've got a lower gear welded to the input shaft due to the lack of lube...would greatly appreciate any insight you could gives us!

We just had one that did the very same thing. Going down the road in road gear and it skidded to a stop. Gear welded to top shaft. If we pushed the clutch in we could start the engine. We took it apart with a torch. The clean up was not fun. CHECK THE LUBE PUMP,LUBE PUMP CHAIN, AND FILTER. We found used parts.

Arnie..thanks for the reply. I had a gut feeling the torch will need to come out. On clean up, did you remove all the counter shafts and the rest of the transmission components to get a good clean? just curious...

Re: 1755 will not move

Posted by arnie on July 29, 2018, 8:02 am, in reply to "Re: 1755 will not move"

No. didn't even take out PTO. Just used an industrial solvent. Pull the bottom plugs and keep rinsing. You can jack up real wheels so the bull gears can be turned. Packing a lot of wet rags around the cutting area helps contain cuttings. Also a good time to adjust PTO. Much easier with the top off than thru that pipe plug hole. Good luck.

Re: 1755 will not move

Posted by Genz on July 30, 2018, 8:45 am, in reply to "Re: 1755 will not move"

Arnie - Thanks..we got the shaft cut out yesterday. Now were on the hunt for parts, (shaft, gear, oil collecting ring) any idea where to find these? Also, can you elaborate on adjusting the PTO? Didn't know there was an adjustment, procedure...thanks for your input!

Oh, yesterday we did find the problem of why this gear seized to the shaft. We knew prior to dis assembly we had no oil pressure. After cutting the shaft out, we then took off the internal lube pump, cause we thought that was the culprit. Once we had the pump out, the bottom pick tube, (the one submerged in the oil that picks up the oil) fell off! Somehow the brass fitting that holds this tube in place, worked loose, the tube fell out of its place and all the pump was doing was sucking air, therefore, starving all the comps of lubrication...unbelievable!

I go to Google and type in "used tractor parts" and start the search. Lots of salvage yards out there. Have you serial # handy. Good luck. Arnie


oliver 1755, will crank on ether, will run 5 minutes then die like its running out of fuel.

Posted by Michael Best on July 24, 2018, 11:27 am

oliver 1755, will crank on ether, will run 5 minutes then die like its running out of fuel. I pulled out the tank valve and it was clean, new fuel filter, you take the line loose at the injection pump and it seems to be flowing fine.

I had a similar issue years ago on a combine. I would take the sediment bowl loose and it would have fuel but when I opened the valve it barely trickled. Used air and blew back through the line and it ran fine for a while then repeat. Finally pulled the line from the tank and low an behold there was a soybean in there.

I put another fuel source to it and it seemed to run fine, so I pulled the thank and had it vated out, hopefully I've gotten the problem fixed


1755 Hydraulics making whining noise

Posted by Ron on July 14, 2018, 6:06 pm

I bought this 1755 and the hydraulic pump makes a whining noise and on occasion it will momentarily get louder when turning or other use of the hydraulics. Sometimes the steering gets harder to turn when the whining gets louder. Where should I start? The oil level is fine and I can change the filter but it doesn't seem like the filter would do that. Thanks

I would certainly change the filter. Larry

Very Little. They basically weigh the same. Larry

oliver 66 power beyond

I'm looking to add a hydraulic valve to run a loader on a 66. Is there a power beyond port on the 66 hydraulic pump?

Re: oliver 66 power beyond

Posted by Larry Harsin on July 18, 2018, 8:44 am, in reply to "oliver 66 power beyond"

Get a Shop Manual for an Oliver 66 from the Floyd Co. Museum in Charles City, IA 641-228-1099. In that Manual, Sec. X, page 10-116-116, it tells how to do this. There is a Figure on pages 10 - 175.

Is there an intake manifold which is bigger and will allow more air into my 880 diesel. Looking for something that will just bolt on. I am also looking for the drive shaft that goes from the flywheel to the front of the transmission for a tractor with a power booster. Thanks.
