24/2/28 Unidentified

Q. See the photo of a recent purchase. This vertical engine has flywheels 28?x 2 3/8 inches. Also a 5? x 7 inch bore and stroke. The serial number is R6445, fuel tank is in base, and the engine uses hit-and-miss governing. Any information will be appreciated.

A. If this is an early Fairbanks-Morse (it's hard to tell from this photo), then the serial number AND manufacturing date might be stamped on the END of the crankshaft.

24/2/29 Feed grinder

Q. I have a feed grinder just like the one on page 9 of the November, 1988 GEM, on the lower right hand corner, just above the Economy engine. My feed grinder has been restored, but I don't know who manufactured it. Would appreciate hearing from anyone with any information. Harlen C. Maier, 130 W. Loretta Ave., Stockton, CA 95207.
