Fairbanks-Morse Z Farm Team Resurrection

1917 3 HP Fairbanks-Morse Z and its companion Typhoon pump get a new lease on life

Running the Team Dry
After mounting and aligning the restored engine and Typhoon pump on the single hand truck, the team was run dry. A ratio of approximately 10:1 is noted between the engine and pump, the latter cycling at approximately 40 RPM. Pulley alignment was carefully set using a large metal straightedge and levels. The truck was fabricated from a laminate assembly of red oak and hickory with period iron wheels.
