I was talking with a guy that has an oliver combine, with a 318 chrysler engine. The transmission went out on it and it wont go forward, but he could go back. this was 5 or 6 years ago and its been sitting ever since. He also has a MM combine that he had already taken the transmission out of and put into the oliver combine. The MM combine blow the engine 20 some years ago and has been parked in a fence row ever since. What goes wrong in these transmisions? And how hard is it to get parts to fix this machine up and use? And anybody got an idea of the model number of the combines that was the same with just differnt colors. He told me they was the same except the oliver combine was wider then the MM.
thanks for any info

All Oliver/Cockshutt/MM combines after 1963 were made in the Cockshutt factory in Brantford Ontario. Oliver used all same model numbers as Cockshutt. MM used different numbers. The most common was the 5542 or its predessor the 542. 5542 and some of the late 542's used the 318 Chrysler. Previous models used slant 6 Crysler. Some of the later models used 440 Chrysler.(555 etc.)5542 had 42" cylinder as did 542. Cockshutt also made smaller models with 28" and 36" cylinders (525) In Canada there is literally thousnads of 5542's. Wreckers don't even buy them anymore as no resale value on parts. The transmission didn't give any trouble. The cables for shifting did. They had to be lubbed or they would seize. IF the the casing on cable cracked the moisture would would run into cable. Similar to emergency brake cable on trucks.

Now you are a little vague with some details. Is this a Wheatland machine or a machine you can put a corn head on. When Oliver had the 525 535 545 Moline had the 2896, 3496 and 4296 to compare to them. The 545 (4296 Mol;ine had an optional 318 engine. Later on you had the 555 Cockshutt, the 5555 Oliver and 5597 (I think) Moline which also used the 318. I worked for an Oliver dealer and the transmissions are good. You need to use the recommended bearings and keep the cables adjusted. I have some Oliver & Moline combine literature. There were also the wheatland machines 542 (Oliver) with a V-8

The Moline equivalant of the Oliver 542 was the 4292.

its a regular midwest combine, with a platform and a corn head. I just never asked what model it was, and we never walked on out back to actually look at it. Im sure its a later one, I just dont know which one and it will be a while before i get back out there to look at it. just thought i would start looking for info
