  • I purchased a 70 industrial at an auction in St. Mary,MO. on Nov.3rd 2007. The one thing that really sets it apart is the engine which is a Continental 6 cylinder flathead of 209 c.i.displacement. Anyone out there know any history behind these engines being put in Olivers I ve had a hard time finding out much, partly maybe mostly, because of the loss of a lot of records in the May 1966 tornado that hit Charles City, Iowa. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

  • My Oliver 70 only has a four speed trans in it. I m told that this tractor came on steel. I wondered if the trans was missing the two higher gears or if they were just locked out.

  • Doss, I have restored 5 70,s. Check the sector in side the steering box. When you turn the steering wheel see if the shaft goes up and down if it moves you may have to take it out to see if the worm gear is screwed into the grar box. I am sure you will see what is wrong when you get it apart. More gears on front end to check, plus pitman arm spring loaded both ends with BIG set screws on both. dana (908)6899001

  • I need to hear from some Oliver experts. I have a 1946 Oliver 70. I have it running great but now have a streering problem. The steering is very loose in the streering box. It appears this is not a replacable part. I have tried to tighten the large screw but to no avail. What next?

  • This is an update on my note above of Nov.19, 2000. I now have the 1936 Oliver Hart Parr Standard 70, SN 300277 at my home on Tybee Island, GA. I have started restoration on it. I am taking pictures as I go that I will share if any one is interested. I am looking for fenders, floorboards, engine side panels, exhaust manifold and a few other parts. Any leads on these would be appreciated. Thanks, Dave Welker

  • I have undertaken the restoration of a much abused Oliver Industrial 70. The engine has had the head rebuilt and now I need to locate an engine rebuild kit or individual parts (bearings, gaskets etc.) for the three gear continental six cylinder engine. If a rebuild kit is not available my next best option is to locate a set of main bearings (I have had the crank turned so I need an oversize set). I can get standard size piston rings and pin bushings if I have necessary.

  • Looks like a beautiful tractor wish I had one. Hope I can find one someday and get it restored. I like standards from any brand but like the Oliver the best. What would these tractors run in price for something that looks pretty good and runs decent? Hate to think I'm in $6000 area was hoping for $2500 area give or take a few hundred.

  • Re; Oliver 70 Standard I own one. I grew up driving it. I am 53 now, a university professor who took over the family farm when my dad died 4 years ago. Ours runs like a top. We used it in the haying this summer. It is a 6-cyl. engine, said to be an experimental high- compression engine. The "70" is said to come from 70 octane gas, which it used in the 40's. Ours was purchased in 1947 and it did all the farm work until 1964 when we added a Ford 4000 (which we also still have). We now use a New Holland TN75 for the major work on our farm in Southwestern VA. We used it to run a thrashing machine (a Frick model). The thing was a real powerhorse under the belt. I still have its 2-bottom plow, an Oliver Plowmaster (2, 16" plows). It leaks a little oil around the engine seals. I guess the seals have dry rotted. Otherwise, it's in tip-top condition. I've seen restored models of these run up to $6000. But they were really nicely fixed up.
