  1. Operating & General Discussion
    I have a 1954 Super 77 Oliver. We use it explicitly for antique pulling. It is completely regular stock with zero modifications. Stock tires as well...never been replaced...still in good condition I'd say. For pulling we removed the Hydraulics and added brackets to the middle and rear and...

    Hello, I am a new member and new at trying to repair antique tractors. I am not new at auto mechanics however. I bought a running, though sorry looking, 58 JI Case 420B construction with backhoe and front end loader. My biggest frustration, no brakes at all. I have no adjustment to the...
