Even though oil was not the same as what they have refined now, I still think that is excessive.  Nobody else did that back then, did they?  I can't remember anything like that...

 

$800 is probably a deal for that Standard if all those implements are original and it really does run good.  That manual is rather unique, too.

Back then, "twice a week" for a working plow would be every 40 hours. Probably not excessive in the days before high detergent additives.

Good point , I bet that was an $$$ machine when new and wouldn't have been bought for small home garden , maybe truck or market garden , I know my grandfather used his Standard Walsh in his garden in the 40s& 50s which was bigger then an acre .then .
