Well, a big day... my first attempt to post a picture on GTtalk. Hope it works!

Here's my 1948 Oliver 60. I had the loader bucket off for some repairs.

According to the preview, my last picture is sideways. Tried to fix it... maybe some one can fix it for me? Otherwise, look at it when yer sleep'in:laughingteeth:

I love them old Olivers, thank you for posting Bill :thumbs:

I wouldn't mind getting a super 55 myself. My one buddy is in to the big 4x4 diesel olivers like the 1850 or something, not sure on the model numbers.

As for the pic not being rotated it needs to be rotated correctly before adding it. You can use microsoft paint or office picture manager or any other image software should be able to change the rotation for you.

I had a feeling the picture would have to stay in the "sleeping mode" once I posted it. I get the picture rotated correctly, on our picture program, but can't get it to stay that way. Just another one of those computer problem for my brain... maybe I'll get it all figured out one of these days!

I have the original owners manual for this tractor, and I'm the third owner. I've had it for about 30 years. Engine runs pretty good. Smokes a little, but not bad for being 62 years old. I call it "my big Garden Tractor" because it's just 18 horse power! I know the final draw bar power is way more than that but, it's kind of funny to look at the size and weight of this 4 cylinder cast iron motor, and realize that a lot of box store riding lawn mowers are rated with the same engine horse power!

Hey the picture got turned the right way. Thanks to whoever did that! I was trying to figure out why something didn't look right, then I realized that the "60" was backwards, along with the rest of the photo. But that's okay. It's better than having to look sideways!!

I like my driveway and garage better on that side of the house. Do you think you could change it, for me, just like the picture? :laughingteeth:

What I did was put your picture in "Paint" and just used the rotate feature

I haven't been able to keep the pictures, in the right rotation, with the program on my computer. Somewhere I am missing the
"save" part. Can't be too complicated, just need to get it figured out.

Sorry I cant help you with that. I'm not familiar with that Program :(

But if you upload it to tinypic, you should be able to rotate them....

You don't have to worry about using another hosting service to post the pics, just upload them to the site as attachments and it will resize them and everything. I am sure the kodak program has a way to rotate pics, just gotta find it LOL
