Default Oliver 1850 Cummins Diesel Conversion

I thought you guys would like to see my current project. I'm converting a 1964 Oliver 1850 from worn out 95hp N/A perkins to a 174hp 12v cummins. Here is a link to my photo album: 1850 Oliver Cummins Conversion | Facebook

Currently I'm waiting on the clutch, and then I can put it all together. Got to finish modifying the gas tank as it would interfere with the turbo. Got it cut down, just gotta weld a new end on it. And work out the coolant lines, intake, exhaust. It's gonna be fun when it's done.

Nope. Actually, during the 50 Series, the Detriots were only used in the 1950-early production. The later production 1950-T was a turbocharged Waukeshaw. Then the 1850 used Perkins. Then all the others used Waukeshaw's. The 55 Series was all Waukeshaw, except for the 2255 which was 3208 Cat and I think the 2155 and the 4x4's had a hercules. Then, in the white years, the 2-105 once again had the 354 Perkins, but this time it was turbocharged... Then most of the rest were Waukeshaw's or Hercules. Then, at the very end, they used the 5.9 & 8.3 Cummins in their last models. And those models, even being made in the late 80's, sell used for at least 50% of their original sell price...

I may have left a few oddball facts out here and there but that's the majority of what I know.

Interesting, looks like I gotta do a bit more learning on Olivers. Me and my dad have a restored 77 row crop gasser, that started out as a weekend project and turned into a major project. But after a year and a bunch of $$$ she's in a condition that is good enough to take to shows but not perfect so she gets worked a bit. Click the image to open in full size.

That's very nice lookin tractor!! I like that.

I'm not real up on anything before the 50 series. So what's in them is anybody's guess when you ask me. But, I'm fairly knowledgable on the mid-size 50 and 55 series, and certain White models. Always learnin more though!!

Swappin into an 88 might be a real challenge.. Would love to see it if it goes... By far, the 1850 Oliver and 2-105 white are the easiest/cheapest two models to repower..

Youtube video is being uploaded as I speak. Stay tuned!
