super 55?

Tom E.
My father-in-law and I have an Oliver super 55(actually it's his but I usually run it!)I wanted to see how much info. I could find out about it. It runs great and I still use it every year to plow and give my 5 yr. old rides. The PTO doesn't work ,he (father-in-law) says it needs clutches. It seems to be all original. I would like also to replace all of the gauges, though they may need to just be hooked up.Soon I will post pics. if I can find where to send them to those interested in seeing them or helping out.The specification # is 15-0005 and the serial # is 23188-518. There was a number stamped on the engine it is 180220E. Also under the seat was 1E-2001A these may just be part nos. Thanks for any help.

Duraine Davis I grew-up in Alabama on Oliver Super 55's and and older 77 Fleetline. The spec. # says it is a l955 model, I have one that has s.n. 16-257-518. Looks like yours is a later model. Any forged # with lE-###$ is a part number. I am very familiar with the little tractor. It was well designed for the time cost a bout $200 more than a Jublee Ford which it was designed to compete with. (The steering sectors have the same internal parts). Fix the PTO and bushhog circles around any tractor built around its introduction. The tractor will have to be split in the middle to repair the PTO. There is an adjustment through the inspection plate. The clutches can be tightened with simply pushing a small pin and turning a knuckle nut tighter. If the clutches are not completely sheared. They have teeth on the outer edge that shear off.
Bruce Travis I have the same issue with the PTO. The teeth have been sheared off, as I found one on the inspection plate. How difficult, time wise is it to split the tractor? I am not sure of what all parts I will need to replace now either. Figured at least the PTO clutch drive drive plate, anything else that you might be aware of?
Thanks for the assistance.
