Decent hydraulics, about as good as anything of the era and better than most, decent power steering. Mechanical brakes which worked about as good as any other tractor of that era with mechanical brakes. Taking the brakes apart once in a while and deglazing the pads and cleaning and lubing the expansion balls makes for a good working brake. The hydra-power 2 speed or the hydrual-shift 3 speed were very reliable. Changing from 540 pto to 1,000 pto is a simple matter. The 283 cui. engine was one of the best engines Oliver used. A 1650 with 18.4 x34 tires will weigh as much as a JD 4020, which is to say a tad over 10,000 lb. If you buy it and rebuild it, you'll be happy with it. If you do rebuild it, make sure the cooling system is 100%. If you boil the motor, you WILL warp the head. The 1650 was far and away the best 70hp. tratcor made in that time period. I've never seen a 1650 turn less than 76 hp. on a dyno and some turned right around 80 hp. Cold starting was better than some, not as good as others. if you ever have to replace the starter put the higher rpm 1955 starter on it. Makes a big difference.
