Argh.. just got a 72 1855, changed all the fluids/filters put about 5 hrs on it with the cultimulcher and all was great... till I went to move it today. Unhooked the mulcher and thought I could smell antifreeze... looked no leaks, but saw a mist coming from the breather. Shut it down and sure enuf it's getting into the case.
What are the chances it is just a head gasket? It was running a little warm when I brought it home, found it about a gal low on antifreeze and the rad cap was seeping. Added fluid, replaced the cap and guess that was enuf...

Just don't judge all Olivers by the 1855. Good luck.

Joe, get prepared for the worst, because if it's better than the worst, you will LOL! We had a 1955 do the same, worked it one day HARD, (five bottom plow), the next day I pulled the dipstick and oil ran out!! Imagine my surprise, NOT happy at all. Lots of money later is was back in my hands but only not to be trusted again. Ran that sucker for about two hay seasons and traded on a 110 White what a step up. Seepage at the top of the liners will get you every time, makes one very gunshy of the 310. Good luck!!
