Kent; The square headed bolt you mentioned is actually a set screw that presses on a key between the bolster & spindle block. Quite often the key &keyways will become worn & it is necessary to file or machine the keyways & install a larger key. I have used both ways, but a good machine shop can give you a much better fit. Good luck, John in MO.

John, Is there a way to get the up and down movement out of the "pedestal"? As I jack up the tractor the front wheels will sit on floor for @3/8" longer than the tractor as I jack it up. What takes this play out?? I have never had one of these apart and the parts/manual I have dont show it. Thanks Kent

Kent, I would remove the spindle block from the pedestal by removing the bolt & shims &the setscrew, if it is loose on the pedestal it should drop right off. At any rate you need to remove it and replace the Timken bearing and race as they tend to wear grooves where the rollers set as most of the travel is straight ahead. If the bearing has locked up it may have worn a groove in the top of the spindle block.You can either file that off & use a washer there or the new bearing may take up the space. Then with shims or washers adjust things to remove any vertical play,Finally when you tighten the setscrew give it a few swats with a hammer as you are tightening it. John.

John, That is the info I was looking for. Looks like the Ole' Girl needs a new bearing and gears. Thanks, I appreciate the help. Kent

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
