I have an Oliver Superior Manure spreader and when the spreader was at its fullest, the rear apron shaft broke in half. I'm trying to get the two apron chain drive sprockets off the shaft, however, after being on there for 50 years, they are on pretty tight. Anyone have any idea where I might be able to get those sprockets. The sprockets have 7 teeth and are about 5" in diameter. The chain on the spreader is a 67H.

Thanks for any replies,

Bob Mayes

Have you heard of the bees wax trick? Also where have you checked for sprockets? Do you know what model spreader you have?

Bees wax trick - No. Can you fill me in on the bees wax trick? I've looked over the internet for most of the weekend with no luck. I did speak to a local metal fabrication shop today. They felt they could 'press' the sprockets off the shaft, then use a piece of carbon steel bar stock, key the new shaft and re-attach the removed sprockets. Supposed to let me know the price on Tuesday. The only markings on the spreader plate is 'Oliver Superior' The serial number starts with a '7 - '. Don't know if this helps or not.

Heat the sprocket hub till it is adull red. Then take a candle or some other wax product and let it melt into the hub. You may need to do both sides of ewach sprocket. Is there a casting number on the sprocket?

Wanted to provide a solution to my problem. Since Oliver spreader parts are no longer available, I sought out a custom metal fabrication shop in Columbus OH. They were able to get the sprockets off the shaft and clean then up quite a bit. Second, they ordered a 1 1/8" shaft, re-keyed the shaft and the sprockets and re-assembled everything. The work to remove the sprockets, re-key, sand blast and repaint the old sprockets was $350. All told, I have about $650 total invested in the spreader ($300 to purchase as an auction and now $350 to repair). Have been using the spreader for 3 years with little or no problems. Now, I know, not to use the spreader to store manure if the temps drop below freezing for a couple days. Good luck to anyone with Oliver spreader issues.
