Farming with an Oliver 88

Oliver 88 tractor

This is a photo of my dad, Edgar York, who lived in Four Mile Township, Morris County, Kansas. He is shown here, harvesting wheat with his Oliver 88 tractor and 6-foot Oliver combine. The combine had a Continental 4-cylinder engine. The engine was water-cooled, but had no water pump; it cooled by convection.
