Right now im in the middle of repairing a late 1960s Oliver model 18 pull type combine. Ill get some pictures when i get it back home to put the head back on and take the grain tank off.

I have a 1948 Farmall H that is coming up when I get the combine goin. Then a 1948 Farmall Cub after that. And when all that is done Im gonna get a new coat of paint on my baby, My 1950 Oliver 66. That is the most reliable, best running 59 year old tractor you have probably ever scene so im gonna save the best for last Very Happy . Its just a little ugly right now. I can get some pictures of the farmalls and The Oliver toninght if ya want to see them.

Well we know the problem & hopefully will be fixed soon Very Happy Right technical talk now the brake band had broke so the
clutch wasnt being fully depressed so they were crashing it into reverse & cos off that it taken the corner off one off the cogs
& some teath off another we have found the parts we need to have it fixed Cool
