    Old prices

    Just looking in the paper today . In 1897 a farmer was selling HRSW for 68 cents a bushel, a very desirable house in town was advertised for $1050, and $100 cash will buy you a New Deering harvester. I assume a reaper ? Jumping ahead in 1922 the railroad was hiring men for 70 cents a hour. The thing I saw was basically a hours labor was similar to a Bu a wheat.
  2. Yeah I don’t no, it had sat for awhile, the salvage yard came and got it . Not sure what they did with it.
  3. At the old coal plant we had one till about 1990. We called it a turnatractor. ? Used it to move rail cars of coal. We moved on to a JD 844 loader so it sat till they scrapped it.
  4. You have to do like my wife does. Just stand there with your hand in the air. I think she raises her own bid sometimes
  5. But I think I would of drove a 88 series . Got to give them credit thou.
  6. Thanks for the comments. I’ll give you a good deal on the bug deflector
  7. Not sure it would be the throttle cable . Runs about 3 grand at 60. I no the speedometer is right , not sure on the tack. But it is howling. I like the truck thou . Brings back some memories
  8. 60 seems like top speed . Would like higher gears
  9. I was kind of looking for a Chevy but wanted a diesel . Something to maybe fix up. Never could afford one years ago, almost can’t now 😳. It’s a 1989 7.3 . I wanted a Manuel but this came up and I ended up with it. Shows 56000 must be 156000
  10. Sorry for your loss, I no u said he’s in a better place . My dad graduated from Bergen in 59 . Dads folks lived between the two towns and retired in karlsruhe . I’m sure dad new him at some point in there lives. Lots of Kleins there at one time. Do you remember the garage there, was it zahls? Don’t think that’s right?
  11. Neat old picture. What town is it in the background?
  12. Well dang , I’m out 2 bucks
  13. Found these at a local garage sale
  14. No good answers from me, I had one in a 1988 boat . It started like a good 466 . Almost before u turn the key. I’m sure boats get gunked up as much as some run . Have you tried sea foam ,
  15. So anyone watching, the mecum auction is listing a 1066 wheatland , so I was interested in the serial number plate . They have some nice pictures but none of the tag . I would bet it’s a Farmall ? On the site it simply lists wheatland fenders. Anyone close to go look ?
  16. Damn I feel bad for the people involved. Most importantly hope everyone is all right . But there is a lot of time and money put into that stuff
  17. This was in the paper today, must of been a good teacher
