Need to see if there are any good Oliver mechanics located in or close to central Missouri. Need to put a clutch in a 1600 and probably need to replace PTO drive disc replace chain and sprockets. Don't have the equipment to break one in half.
Thanks in advance for any names or places that can get this done.

If it has a hydra power you pull the engine and hydropower as a unit, separate, and replace clutch components, and reinstall. BUT first pull PTO shaft. If it does not have a hydropower the clutch can be serviced without removing engine. BUT you still need to remove PTO shaft.

Drive disc?? You mean the clutch disks or the PTO spline coupling at the flywheel? PTO clutch is easy, drive coupling will be there with the clutch job.

Take off the PTO cast cover,remove three bolts behind the clutch pack and pull the shaft all the way out. Remove the radiator,take the connecting link out of the chain coupler,take out the four motor mount bolts and lift the engine and hydra power out. That's all there is to it.

You do not have to split an Oliver. Pay attention to RRLund. Buy an I&T shop manual. Take the cover loose on the PTO and pull the long shaft and you are ready to work on the PTO clutch. Take hood, gas tank and radiator off and lift motor/hydra power out together and split it on the floor. Make sure you get motor bolts and shims back in the original places. Easy peasy Chris

Thanks everyone for your replies, have some medical issues at this time and would be hard for me tackle this job at this time.
20 years ago probably wouldn't have been a problem. had hoped on finding someone close that had experience with Olivers to do the job.

I dont know any guys out there. Might look on the member map. Any half way decent mechanic should be able to do it. Main. Thing most people dont know about is pulling the pto shaft.

I found a very good mechanic by advertising for one on Craigslist.He works at a dealership and does part time work on his own,I'm not in a rush to get most tractors back so it works good for both of us.He does very good work and is very reasonable on prices.He's has the 5th tractor of mine over at his shop now.With CL you have to go thru the Wannabes, figured since he worked at a dealership he should be OK,its actually saved me a lot of money I needed an old style head for an Oliver 1650 diesel he worked with a guy that sold me one for $150 in good condition expected to pay a lot more.
