oliver liked to experiment with different setups and although oliver didn't create the first diesel tractor they saw its potential and new that it would someday make gas tractors obsolete, looks like they were right. so when the fleetlines got started in 1948 oliver made a big push on farmers to use diesels and from 1948 to 1956 or so oliver owned what i believe was 80 or 90% of the diesel tractor market.

Fleetlines are just the 66/77/88 and 99 tractors. Then they went to the super 66/77/88/99 and so on. I dont know much on the history of Oliver diesels other than they started to push them really early on and they sold a boat load of them compared to other companies. McCormick had a platform in the early 30s with the WD-40 and TD-40 but they never took it all the way. As for starting it, it should have a glow plug in the manifold, and if it still starts hard should be able to install a block heater.
