'round the pot-bellied stove / More tractors
« on: April 05, 2008, 10:06:50 PM »
I brought home two more tractors today, both will be parted. One is an oliver 77. While most everthing on it is gone it still has the brass throttle, brake links and clutch pedal. Those make it unique and are very much worth saving to put onto another tractor.

    The 70 I brought home really isn't fancy. Just a common rowcrop but I'm certain to find some salvagable parts on it. Honestly I hadn't looked at it very closely.

      Also I had room for an Oliver 109 plow on the trailer. Its a shame so much had been robbed off of it. The steel wheels and tail wheel on it are perfect and just what I need for my other 109. I believe between the two of them I'll be able to build a nice one.

So had anybody else played with rust this weekend?

     How difficult is it to bring stuff across the border?  I'd sure like to get one of the Cockshutt 80's.  Its too far for me to travel anyway I'm sure. Probably be better to buy in the states with the weakened dollar, For the time being.

Howdy folks. While you are waiting for some activity here, check out this interesting looking antique tractor auction sale coming up in Sask. in July. Theres a good assortment of colours including a couple of JD model A tractors with "osculating front ends". Didn't know that was possible on a tractor. :confused:
Heres a sample of whats at the sale. This 400 IH out in the snow.

What do you mean by "osculating front ends" .  I'm trying to visualize it.

A very nice looking 400 any Ollies at the sale.


'round the pot-bellied stove / Shady Maple

Well its been a couple years since Beilers Sale has been moved. So far I haven't seen any of the old ATIS faces at the new locationl Beiler's was an era that came to an end, only memories left.

     Tonight I took a trip down memory lane and ate at Shady Maple (all you can eat). Everything there was the same, excellent food and nice atmosphere. But Oh how I miss the nights eating there after the sale and talking tractors or about the newest rust we'll be taking home at the ATIS table. Dave Cesan, his father and all the others who came to Beiler's often only to grab a meal at Shady Maple I was thinking of you.

     While I missed Shady Maple and the old Beiler's sale. I'm certain Shady Maple doesn't miss the Beilers mud we used to drag into their dining room.:eek:

      I have a Ford, I believe its a 3000 but thats with a big "?"   Its a 3 cylinder gas high/low trans. I've tried on YT to determine exactly what it is but I the numbers I've found on it doesn't seem to be the write ones to ID it.

I'm going to have to check over here about once a week as I see Danny is back. Who's going to show up next? When I get a chance I'll post some pictures of dad's Cub we just painted--before it gets filthy on grass mowing detail!

      I gettin' tired of talkin to myself. It does get a little lonesome here but check twice a week and write once. Might make it a more popular hang out.

That'll be great Ralph. I'll see if I can't get a few pics together to put up as well. Pictures are always good to start conversation and bring a crowd on these forums

I know George but I'll keep talking to myself atleast until others join in the conversation.  I saw in another thread you have an Oliver 99. I as well have a 99 hidden amongst my other Ollies as well as the 99's older brother a Hart parr 28-44. The 28-44 is a Thresherman Special with the solid cast front and back wheels and the cleats are close together for better road travel. Also the extra big belt pulley.

     I'm afraid I didn't get much done with the tractors today as the paying job called me off earlier than I expected

Larry, I'm glad you made it! Tell your friends and maybe we can make this forum a little more happening.  Who knows maybe Spencer will put an Oliver section in for us. Till then we can chew the fat round the pot belly stove


Forum Technical Help / Picture gallery

I know theres a pic gallery on the ATIS website but for some reason they don't come out with my computer. I was wondering if there was a way to have an ATIS members picture gallery on this forum.

Today I brought home 4 tractors from the junkyard 2 Oliver 60's, one of them I'll get going for its not in bad shape. The other two was a Oliver 70 which will be a parts tractor. I'll try and get some pics of it before tearing it down as it really has some interesting farmer "rigging" done to it. Like the attempt of putting duals on the back. On one side they put a Farmall H hub on the outside of the oliver hub and on the other side I think its an Ol 77 hub outside the original 70 hub. It really tickles me to see it.
         The other tractor that came home is a Hart Parr 70. It was too far gone to do anything with but part out. In fact I had just gotten done taking all the good stuff off of it tonight. It amazes me that the starter on it actually works. Goodness knows how long it had been sitting out. Also how easy the bolts came out for as rough and rusted this old tractor was.

      Tomorrow I'll drag one of the other donors in and start working on tearing it down. I'm not sure which it'll be.

After my getting off the mail list, a few weeks later I rejoined but stayed silent. This new forum is so nice I have to speak up and compliment Spencer. I'd like to see more threads, more involvement. So I'll run my mouth a little....

     Despite spending most of today doing taxes:confused: it turned out to be a good tractor afternoon.  I spent much of the afternoon getting tractors I've let accumulate at my neighbors junkyard out of the bushes. Most are in the open and tomorrow I'll start trailering them home.

Most will be parted out and put on shelves. A couple though, I'm thinking real strongly on getting running. one of them is an Oliver 70. Its single front wheel and spindle was robbed from it long before I got it but I have one to put on it. Whats really unusual about it is the extra long axle housings and strange pads on them. Of course its a vegetable tractor, came out of Jersey, and has extra long axles as well.

Another one I'm planning on getting going is an oliver 25. which really is an early Industrial 70. I'd thought about making it an Airport 25 but really don't have enough information about them or if their serial number plates marked them as airports. The serial # on the plate I have is 400025 which tells me its  the 25th tractor off the assembly line. The 4 indicates that its an industrial. Its an early tractor so I better do it right!

I drug home from the junkyard an Ann Arbor haypress. Its stuck but I don't think it'll take much to free it. What sheet metal they have is shot. Not really a big deal.....after everythings home I'll dig into it a little more.

Now the project I've been spending the past few days on is an Oliver 77 standard. Just a little while ago I got her running, on either anyway. Now I need to head off to the store and get some high $$$ copper tubing and fittings to make the fuel line. Oh yea and a sediment bowl. I think she'll run just fine on gas. After that I need to look into the steering cause it DON'T! and the gear shifter needs some attention. Nothing major I'm sure. After that I can start looking for the less important pieces its missing drawbar, side curtains etc.

I'll talk about the Oliver 70 wide front I got running again after being mad at it for 5 years. Turned out to be a simple fix....but I'll talk about that later. I've hopefully said enough to make other fingers fondle the keys a while  :)
