Rescue and Restoration of a 1914 1 HP Fairbanks-Morse Eclipse No. 1
Worth the Wait
Dating Randy's Eclipse, serial number 43888, is difficult since these engines used a different numbering system than the rest of the FM line. This engine is thought to have been built around 1914. Available in 1 HP and 2 HP versions, Eclipse production lasted from 1912 to 1922.
Very compact, Eclipse engines were designed for pumping duty, with pumps geared straight to the crankshaft.
