One of my blogger and message-board buddies, a fellow who has a particular liking for Oliver tractors, left a comment to notify me he'd like to see an Oliver update. Here it is, hopefully with no misinformation; Cliff is holed up in the shop, so I can't run it past him. But if he sees something that needs correction later, I'll come back and fix it.
Cliff had to buy a new Handyman Jack; the old one wasn't up to the task all by itself.
Here are some parts that were cleaned in said vat.
Wheels have been sandblasted.
Right there was a hydraulic leak that almost drove Cliff crazy; his brother Phil helped him find the source and fix it.
Here are the fuel-tank fenders Cliff picked up at a junk yard, painted and ready.
And there you have it, a tour of Cliff's shop while he's fixing up the Oliver.
