I am by no means, aquainted with oliver tractors. That being said, my dad has always wanted an oliver super 77. We are going to look at a diesel model today and I am wondering if this is a good model. Mostly wondering about the diesel. Trouble free? Prarts availible? what are your thought

Very good tractor in my opinion. Good power and excellent on fuel. Parts are readily available. We've had two Super 88 diesels and we'll never go back to gas.

2 would be a lot easier on the tractor, and I suspect if you're plowing with a 60 year old tractor, its more for fun than production, and getting a little more "seat time" wouldn't be a bad thing.

An Oliver 77 diesel is what started me as an Oliver fan. I was trying to disc a rough field with an 8N, and getting the puddin' pounded out of me. Neighbor brought over his 77 diesel, and insisted I use it- And the difference was night and day. Tall, long and smoooooooth- rode like a Caddy by comparison, and I love those 6 cylinders.

Mike is right, 3-16s is just right for our super 88D in heavy black MN/IA soil. 2-16s would be a good fit for a Super 77, maybe 3-14 in lighter soil. A Super 77 can be built to handle 3-16s but it would take engine work plus plenty of extra weight for traction.
