Thanks much for the feedback. WHEN it's running, it runs good. The steering needs fixing. I don't use it hardly at all and the last time I tried, it didn't want to start. It's suffering from lack of attention. I am a John Deere guy but thought this Oliver was a good enough buy. So far it's got a rebuilt injection pump and injectors and the radiator fixed. The problem is I don't have much confidence in this tractor and figure it should go to someone who wants to tinker with it. I consider it "retired".... it's plowing days are OVER.
I was asking $2,600 but that was before I went to go move it and the motor is now stuck. The rain cap failed. Now, I am trying to hold out for $2,150 with all the usable parts. A guy from Iowa expressed an interest and I got a quote from a trucking outfit I've used before. They have a rate of $1,200 to haul the tractor from South Texas to Iowa. I'm not looking at a map but I'm guessing Michigan in about twice as far away. Thanks for asking.
