    Default Oliver 770 industrial tractor

    I'm acquiring an old Oliver 770, and it is not like any other Oliver's i've seen on the net. I'll be putting up videos regarding this machine on youtube. Here is a link to the first video:

    Looks like you have your work cut out. If I recall the Oliver Industrial tractors were orange.

    Thanks for the reply. It was running, but has now died, and I'm trying to figure it out. I wonder if the tractor was painted yellow by Ware corp, the makers of the backhoe.

    Here is an update. I still do not have it started, but am makeing progress. First off, there is no mechanical lift pump on this tractor. It relies on gravity flow to feed the transfer pump in the injector pump assemblly. The manual primer is just there to remove air from the system after changeing the fuel filters, or running out of fuel. The inline aftermarket electric pump added on my tractor negates the need for the hand primer when bleeding the system, and probably aids fuel flow in the case of a worn/tired transfer pump.

    Here are a few links to the latest videos:
