I have an Oliver Hart Parr 70 that has been stored in a dry barn for over 15 years. Last year when I tried to turn the engine over it was stuck.(I drove it in the barn 15 years ago, ran fine) Filled the cylinders with ATF/Acetone and today I got back to looking at it and the front five cylinders are void of any fluid, (Leaked though into the pan with no rust visible when viewed through a bore scope)The back cylinder is still full of ATF. I plan on selling it and my question is should I put the time,money and effort into it and pull the head to see if we can get number 6 unseized? The block has been welded (never leaked after repair)as well as the front axle casting. All 4 tires were flat but they now all hold air except for 1 calcium filled rear one which the valve stem is corroded has well as the rim where the stem comes out. Not looking for a lot of money out of the sale of it. I don't think I could recoup the cost of the valve grind gasket kit just to sell it unseized. That being said , should I sell it the way it sits or pull the head and try to get it unseized. Thanks,Bill M.

To bad it's missing fenders. It's hard to find a standard with good fenders. There are a few different serial number list out there. I don't know which one is right.

"should I sell it the way it sits or pull the head and try to get it unseized?"
Sell it as is, but if you get it unstuck, it will be a bonus. For some reason, the Hart-Parr and Oliver 70 tractors don't have much value. You could easily put $3K into one and have trouble getting $1K out of it. The irony of all this is that I've heard some dyed-in-the-wool John Deere and IH fans mumble under their breath how smooth an Oliver 70 runs.

I agree the Oliver 6 cylinders run so smooth they remind me of a sewing machine. Bill

That is interesting. The records I found say 1937 started a 301803. You may have something. It will be interesting to see it. How are the fenders? Side panels are available through lunch farms. Without seeing it it's hard to say what it's worth but $500 may be on the low side.

Sell it as-is. The buyer will want to do his own work on it. Your price sounds realistic.

To far for me. I'm in Oregon. The price sounds close depending on sheet metal. A vin. number and pics would be good. ID tag should be on left side of engine.
