I am interested in learning any information about the New Century corn cultivator. -Arnold Johnson Rt. 1, Box 226, Estelline, SD 57234

WALKING PLOW IDENTIFICATION SOUGHT

I have an old walking plow that belonged to my great-grandfather. Stamped on the bottom of the plow point is 'Oliver,' and on the backside of the plow is 'A-C' set over 'S B,' with a logo-like design that says 'Oliver Plow Co.' What years were these plows made and what color were they? -William H. Hardin 115 Finch Lane, Marion, KY 42064

STATISTICAL INFORMATION SOUGHT

I am attempting to locate an annual time series of agricultural implements, which is statistical information on how many of a particular implement were manufactured in a particular year; (i.e., # made in 1860, # made in 1861, etc.). I want pre-1915 annual series by J.I. Case of Racine, Wisc., Oliver Chilled Plow Works and C.Aultman. -Joe Davis. 5705-22 Windlestraw, Durham, NC 27713. davis5@duke.edu

CURTIS AIR COMPRESSOR QUERY

I need information on an old Curtis air compressor that I would like to restore. I am wondering if there was some device on the crankshaft responsible for splashing the crank case oil upward to lubricate the bearings and cylinder. Any help is appreciated. - Ralph R. Look 8006 Watson Lane, Wichita, KS 67207



SHELLER SPECIFICS SOUGHT

I would like help identifying this old corn sheller. On the flywheel it says: 'Browning.' Also, 'BK160H.' It has an electric motor; does anyone know if it would have come this way, or if the motor is an add-on? I would like to rebuild it to original condition. - Donald W. Baxter, 9736 Haasetown Rd., Morgantown, IN 46160

FATHER USED 1920S IHC HEADER TO HARVEST KAFIR CORN AND WHEAT

I just finished reading about the Jones header in the February issue. My father had a newer model, maybe from the 1920s; it had an IHC marking on it. When I saw the small wheel in the rear, I wondered how it stayed on the ground.
