    Later on in life you will enjoy a good political joke. Enjoy school and fun times though for now. The real world comes and takes over eventually.

    Antifreeze testing

    If you are in southern Indiana you should be fine with a little bit of antifreeze. We used to religiously check with a commercial tester. Now I have just gotten to the point of it smells and looks like antifreeze you are fine. Unless you are north of arctic circle. Half antifreeze and half water is fine. You won’t bust a block with 10 % antifreeze but it could freeze on you while running in cold weather

    Beef hanging weight

    It’s almost the same up here in USA. They want about 1150 to 1250 lb live weight finished. If to big over 1500 lbs they send that animal to the kill cow and bull line. I think 1200 lbs live will give you about 700 lb hanging weight.

    IHC jacket

    The girl in jr high had a blue light jacket almost like the middle one. It said ih and had trucks underneath. I think it was solid blue without the white sleeves

    Beef hanging weight

    Many times dad sold pigs to be butchered. Everyone both seller and buyers thought they were getting shafted. At the time it was easy. All butcher pigs brought about 100 dollars. 42 cents at 225 40 at 250 and sows and boars usually around 30 cents. Dad generally wanted a 100 to 125 for pig. It takes some extra effort to sort on pig or load 20 out of dirt lot. He quit selling local after a while. Took them to sales barn cash a good check on weight. We just sold a truckload of corn. Our truck was completely full holds 715 bushels of dry corn. I told guy you are buying 650 bushels at current price 3.17. He thought I was shafting him. I told him try and go to town and charge it. The corn on truck was around 19% so I took shrink off

    6 Cylinder M. How's It Done?

    Here are pics of starter dad used.dad used a 660 starter on his 3 volt super m and the other 2 bolt used a starter he had around drilled the holes to fit. If you need to put a starter on you can loosen bolts and slide bell housing ahead instead of grinding trans cover. You can find different tooth count drives for delco and change the readily. You probably could find a modern gear reduction starter now to fit right in

    I filled gas in Grand Forks before I returned car. It is about 6 mile trip to airport return. I took back hiway 50 and 40 mph speed limit. Trip computer for that segment showed 40.6 mpg. The trip from Fargo to GF is Around 70 miles that is when I saw the trip computer that segment avg 31.7 at 76 mph. That is when I thought I will check mpg on this thing

    An article about band leader Glenn Miller they think they know where his plane might be in the English Channel. He was one of the biggest stars of the 1930s and 40s. Volunteers for service is turned down but manages to get into air force to start a band to entertain troops. He was on his way to Paris when they lost the plane. Now days we can’t get the crazy stars to leave the USA let alone defend it.
