oliver 77 thermostat and how to ID a super series

Postby mr2255 » Fri Sep 27, 2002 9:01 am

two subjects:
i took off the question mark shaped elbow that holds the thermostat. now how do i get the thermostat out w/o damage to the thermostat? its "stuck." how do i know if the thermostat is good or not? there is a big hole into the block and a small hole for the h2o. where do they go and why two holes? am i right that this is where hot h2o returns to the radiator? is the big hole from the block and the small hole from the head?
i have asked similar question before on this site. what is the easiest way to determine if a rusted up repainted (with a brush) fleetline is a super 77 or not. mine is a row crop gas with the 3/4 inch threaded bolt holes in the frame pads. is that all i need to be sure? what is the bore and rpm difference between a 77 and a super?

Mr2255, can't help you on the thermostat question. But about determining if it's a Super, the frame pads are an indication the frame is a super, you also should have disk brakes, newer style seat assembly without the bar in the back, and there should be a cover or hourmeter mounted under the distributor.

also, the bore on a 77 is 3.3125 and on a super it is 3.5. The rpm is the same between the two models. Jeff.

I think they put some of the new seats on the late model original fleetlines. We owned a 1953 Oliver 66 with side curtains and the new style seat. I know the seat came on it since my folks were dealers.

Frank, yes, all of the 1952 Fleetline tractors and newer had the Super style seat assembly. If you've noticed, they also had larger brake pedals than the earlier ones also. Jeff.
