    Wow! A few balers being restored out there!! That would be cool to see them in the same field baling together!!!! 
    How were the 101 Oliver’s fast? Everything sped up? Or just pushed the hay into the bale faster?

    Roto flo feed above the pickup. Like a little three bar hayrake.Then packer fingers. If it's anything like the 720 Oliver I had. That thing would bale anything!

  2. Can't tell what make hub it is. I've redone several vintage lock out hubs just by cleaning them up. If it's got travel and won't go the whole way home most likely it's in the detents. There may be a cam in there made of pot metal or delrin. Sometimes those break

    A local fellow thinks even the cake-on grease and dust should not be removed in order to maintain the tractor's "story", patina, etc.  I just want to ensure all moving parts have the appropriate lubrication without any grit.  still gathering information...

    The antiques that get the most attention these days at shows around here are the ones that are left alone  cosmetically but made to run .


     Personally I would leave it as is and not remove all the  patina  . 

    I'm a big believer in it's only original once. But rust,dust,dirt,cobwebs,mouse sh!t and grease aren't original. You have to stabilize it so it doesn't deteriorate further.
