This is going to be at an auction tomorrow and wondering what a fair price would be. It does NOT run and didn't check to see if it was stuck or not. Also what should I look for besides the normal checks like for water or antifreeze in the oil.

That would be nice pulling a small sawmill.

Buy the AC WD sitting beside it,they don't bring much usually and are a way more all around useful tractor.

If the engine turns and it has good matching tires I would go 5-600. Look for cracks in the block too. Not good for much other than pulling something or just playing.

In my area, for a non-running 70, the high bid would be what they are paying you take it. Unless it starts, runs, moves, and has the side panels, it's worth scrap value. $165 a ton minus hauling in east central Indiana.

Well the crank is right there, see if she will turn. If it not locked up tight that changes things a bunch $$$$. That unit does not look like it has sat outside very much, thats a plus, rear tires look like they will hold air for quite some time, thats a plus. If it would turn over, several turns 800 would be my top. If shes locked up I'm not bidding, I took one apart that was all locked up. rust everywhere the block was about the only thing I could salvage. You ask. just my opinion, gobble

I'll try it tomorrow and see if it will turn over, if not sounds like I may just let it sit since I've heard parts are kinda hard to get for this engine

A year ago, I picked up an Oliver 70 with an excellent running engine with all sheet metal and four good tires for $750. I trailered it partially home, but drove it home the last 10 miles. The Oliver 70 just gets no respect....until you have a smooth one idling beside you. BTW, as you probably know, internal parts are scarce and expensive for this Continental engine.

The one we had didn't deserve any respect.

It wasn't a bad tractor on the rare occasions when you could get the #$&%%#% thing to run. We went through all of the tuneup factors and anything else that could affect starting multiple times and we still routinely belted it up with a VAC Case to start it.

I don't know much about an Oliver so that's why I was asking about it. I haven't searched for engine parts, I just figured that parts for a Continental were pretty easy to find.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
