(quoted from post at 11:34:44 12/09/20) Pretty darned close to my Oliver 1365. Fenders have a newer square look to them.

Pretty much the same tractor as the Long I bought new in '76. Doesn't sound as though SV was crazy about the control layout but I loved it in that size; highly manueverable, quieter than a gasser, was the sweetest little hay baling (small squares) tractor I ever had. Never did anything to it but change the oils, filters and a fan belt or two. I sold it with 10,000 hrs on the clock and it still purred like a kitten and would go 100hrs between oil changes without burning or losing a drop.
Square fenders were standard Fiat sheetmetal.

Dad has a Hesston 770 tractor. I have no idea how many hours we put on that tractor over the last
40 years, but it's been a fantastic machine. Baled 10,000 squares and 500 rounds a year for that
40 years and cut and baled with only that tractor. Her and I are well acquinted. Overhauled has a fiat motor.

There was some sold new around here,, the smaller ones 4 cylinder units 60-80 hp aprox stood up pretty well,, the larger ones,, 100-140 hp like to eat clutches when used on loader work,, this was true even with guys who were good on a clutch,, I was sure glad when the customers I had got rid of them,, myself I disliked the tiny cab and doors,, and dash mounted shifter style,, I never worked on a engine,, or transmission but none here were used that I worked on for farming just loader/haying units, also seen a few hyd pump issues on the steering side of the pump,
