An Oliver 70 is about a 22 - 23 HP tractor - around here 2 - 14's would be the limit.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Yours is the first I've seen with steelies front and rear. I've only seen the steel tiptoes in the back and regular rubber ones up front.

That was me first attempt at restoring a tractor. I sold it last year to a friend who is an Oliver nut. Steel front wheel are always harder to find than rears. During the scrap drives of WWII the fronts were easy to toss into the back of the truck when you went to town and most went to scrap dealers.
