Title: Hi All!!
Post by: Steve Ruddy on June 02, 2018, 11:24:46 AM
Thanks for the membership. I'm from Guerneville Ca and am currently restoring an Oliver HGR-42 which now has metal tracks. We got it in 2008 from my wife's employer. I was able to get it started and thought I would just start playing with it. My wife had different ideas and as she was pressure washing it, kept asking me to take another piece off for easier cleaning. The next thing you know the whole tractor is disassembled and ready fort a complete rebuild! The restore got put on the back shelf for about 5 years but now we are in full swing again. I have a good memory for taking things apart and reassembly but never had to remember this long. Nuts and bolts are just in coffee cans! :-) Here is what she looked like when I went to pick her up. BTW wife nick named her Cricket.

Do you have any part of the original rubber track system? I assume this machine was recalled by Oliver and then changed back to steel.
