  5. Prolly I should'a also included the powerplants, the B-29s had Wright 18 cylinder R-3350 engines, then when Boeing further evolved thst design into the C-97s it had Prattt & Whitney 28 cylinder R-4360s. R-3350s were 2200 HP and the R-4360s (we called it the "corncob" on account of it's 28 cyls, 4 rows of 7 cylinders) were 3500 horses. best, randy
  6. Yup, thanks , now I see, a KC-97. The C-97 was a transport, the KC-97 was a refueler version with a boom, both were double decked modifications of the B-29. Flown them all, and thanks for the photos. best, randy

  18. Something From Mr. Sohn's Neck Of The Woods

    Interesting to see how life has changed. I (born 1934) grew up south of Lake Park, Iowa and then we moved north of town (few miles into Minnesota) in 1945. I was fascinated with having REA electricity and being able to turn on a light with a pull cord instead of having to alight an aladin (kerosene) lamp. And that photo of milking into a pail and when the cow would switch her tail (horseflies) and swat you in the face with that crappy tail. best, randy (good ole days <g>)

  21. Guess ill spend the night in town....

    Have had a lot on the ground here this winter, by this morning a goodly portion of it was gone. Then, about 3 this afternoon, it started coming down, wet, looks like about 7" on the surface here out there so far. best, randy (south 20 miles of Twin Cities in MN)
  22. Seat parts

    IIRC, that was built by Monroe , had a "tip-up" seat. Our M had one. best, randy
  23. Does anyone clean spark plugs anymore?

    Yup, that entry sure brought back memories. So yup, cleaning them is/was fine in my book. best, randy
  24. Guess ill spend the night in town....

    Radio and TV lower "crawlers" are full of school closings/delays around here, Must all be anticipation? Great day here in the Twin Cities area. Anyhow, down home in the NW Iowa (Lake Park/Spirit Lake/Okiboji) area where I grew up we always had snow fences put up in the fall in the fields. best, randy
  25. 500 hour M on page 33

    First quote - re if it looked original, chuckle, I've got some oceanfront property in AZ that you might like. Second quote - did see a few repainted at Les Rowe Impl./Watland Impl./etc. when sold but they used the decals in use at that time, back when it was McCormick-Deering and the IH logo wasn't yet around. Third quote - true, paint used during WW II faded quite rapidily. best, randy (like I said, it's original only once)
