Are those shock absorbing springs on those front spindles?

Yes they are or almost like what cars have wheel suspensions, some companies had that version others used a flat spring steel for their suspensions others rubber.

This Oekonom tractor has a flat springs as an axle151205092257233722.thumb.jpg.ba7696591408794c848695039a00689d.jpg

I figure it's a 533.

Ya looks like the 533V or the 433V Vineyard model with a plastic I mean fibourglas hood

If you ever have the chance to visit the area of South Bend, Indiana, I highly recommend a visit to the Studebaker museum there. I had the opportunity to travel there many times over the years on business and taking customers to the museum was always a hit! Here are just a few of my favourites:

In all the times I visited I never had the chance to see a game; and I have friends there who are big "tailgaters" but it just never worked out. I have toured the grounds, bought souvenirs at the book store, visited the church but that is about all relating to the Irish.

BTW, best restaurant is Tippecanoe, in the old Studebaker Mansion.

I need to check out that museum next time I am in town.  Weren't Olivers made in South Bend also?

A sample of what Ford trucks had to offer in 1956. Look at the GVW ratings on the big tandem. 42,000 pounds!

Loadstar,

Thank you for posting these great vintage ads! You manage to bring back some great memories!

Can someone explain the technical details of what Ford says are "Sodium cooled exhaust valves"? I can't see how sodium inside an engine could be a good thing.

Yes, "Oliver Chilled Plow Works" was founded in South Bend. The Oliver mansion is only a few blocks from the Studebaker residence.

Some tractors were produced in South Bend but because of Oliver's merger with Hart-Parr, most tractor production was done in Charles City, Iowa.

There are minor mentions of Oliver in the Studebaker museum. I purchased this book in the museum gift shop, it is a great read.

I believe the heads of the valve were sodium filled somehow?

Thanks for the information.

 

Say, you know anything about McCormick forklifts in Europe?

Here is another Ford ad from 1956 

I think I might have that one. 56 was one of my favourite years for Fords. 

Dodge was selling a "sport truck" option in 1970. Interesting to see they still had the beam axle up front.

It's a Allis Chalmers "B"

Really! Well I stand corrected. Seems I have made this mistake before from that angle. Seems like a pretty small tractor to work a blade like that very deep.
