Crispy critter

Just got in an Oliver 550.



It got burnt outside, so did do any serious damage. We replaced the distributor cap and wires, and it fired right up.

Re: Crispy critter

I would have NEVER guessed that it would fire up that easy! Not in a million years! Did you try shifting it into gear? You're probably gonna tell me that all the gears work, and with new tires and some paint, you already have a buyer lined up. Why oh why can't I find one like that?????????????? I'd find one with a 4" burn mark on it and the innards would be nothing but pudding........ and I'd be like this guy>

If it's FREE, it's for ME!

ALWAYS remember to remove the spark plug wire from the plug before sticking your hand in the machine!!!! The fingers you save could be your own.

Re: Crispy critter

Was this in a brush fire or was it an engine fire?

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it must be an electrical problem!

Joe, I didn't climb on to try it out, but the hydraulic arms lifted while we were starting it. LOL I have no doubt that the tranny is fine, just the lever boots are all burnt off.

Freebird, it was a grassfire started by their outdoor wood boiler. The family lost their house and barn too!
