Fairbanks-Morse 'Z' Engine

3901 Heavenly Way, Valley Station, KY 40272  

This Fairbanks-Morse was completely overhauled by Pete in five months.

This engine is considered rare because it has a Webster oscillating magneto. Of special notice is the huge skid made from 9x9 treated pine and the bent exhaust pipe of steel. The cooling tank is a pressure water tank. The fuel tank is a 10 gallon steel tank, taken from a piece of railroad track maintenance equipment.

The paint is Dupont-Dulux Fairbanks green. The pin stripes were hand painted. All grease cups and oiler are the brass lunkenheimers.
