I took some pictures of the 1947 oliver 60 Ive been workin on. My dad bought it from the origional owner about 20 years ago wo bought it new at the Oliver dealer in the town I live in. (The dealer owner is still alive and im good friends with him) After my dad got the tractor home he found it wouldnt stay in 5th gear so he took the transmission apart and found a snap ring had poped out of its groove on the main imput shaft which alowed the shaft to come forward far enough for the gears to disengauge. He found that to put the snap ring back farthure dissasembly was required and he didnt have time so the tractor got stuffed in the back of the barn were it sat for about the past 19 years. I started workin on it just after I got out of school this summer and with any luck it will be running under its own power by tonight. All im waiting on is for the clutch and pressure plate to come back from the clutch shop and for the starter and generator to come back from the rebuild shop which should happen later this afternoon.

I just pushed the 60 out of the barn and use my dads 1951 Oliver 77 to pull it up to the garage.


Heres how I have it hooked up.


A look down the hood of the 77 goin up the driveway.


Another of the 77 in the garage.


And some pics of the 60.






Ill get some more pictures tomorow after shes all back together!!

The clutch shop got the wrong linings for the clutch disk 2 days in a row from their new "Overseas Supplyer" Evil or Very Mad . But with any luck the clutch should be back today and i can finally get the old girl back together.

I wish i had a video camera so you could hear it run. It sounds real good with a straight pipe and for its size this thing is FAST.

I think the only tractor in our collection that will become a show tractor is my dads 1937 Hart Parr 70 and the 1944 Oliver 60, both on steel wheels. Our other stuff will eventually get restored but none of them will quit working untill they quit makin the gas to run them. They are small by todays standards but they still make excelent chore tractors and they have the balls to step up and be a spare horse in the field.
