34/5/26 Unidentified Engine Q. See the photo of an engine that we think is an Olds but is missing the water hopper. Does anyone have any information on this engine? If so, please write Donald R. Shiflett, 597 Fairfax Pike, Stephens City, VA 22655.

34/5/27 Ensilage Cutter Q. In the August 1998 GEM, pages 20-23 was an article about 'My Little Engine .' Reference was also made to an old ensilage cutter that burned up years ago. Can you recommend any book or books that might possibly show various ensilage cutters? Any help would be appreciated. Burl H. Gillum, 6637 Pendleton Ave., Roanoke, VA 240l9.

A. The only book we would know of would be Encyclopedia of American Farm Implements, available from GEM.

34/5/29 McCormick B-250 Diesel Q. I just bought a McCormick B250 diesel engine, s/n 7603. Did anyone ever see these and I also wonder when it was built? I called some IH dealers and they didn't ever hear of it before. It is in very good shape and runs nice. Any information would be appreciated. Ben Kinsinger, 686 Kinsinger Road, Meyersdale, PA 15552.

34/5/30 Desjardins Engine Q. I have a Desjardins engine and need to contact someone for information on it. If anyone can help, please contact: Karl R. Hoffman, 12500 Masters Road, Memphis , MI 48041.
