Fairbanks Morse

| September/October 1998

Dick Brown, 175 Sonnet Lane, Gilbertsville, Kentucky 42044-8840 sent the photo at right of his 1912 Fairbanks Morse 1 HP Jack Junior. He says, 'This engine was basically a parts engine when I bought it from my good friend and fellow collector Marvin Scott from Indiana. Thanks to the good folks who advertise in GEM, and also to Charlie Simpson and his Duplicast Metal Works at Indianapolis, we're done. I have 30 engines, several FM Type H. I have the 1, 2, 4, and 6 HP Model H's, as well as a 2 HP Type T vertical and a 1 HP headless Z. My soon-to-be son-in-law Ricky Stevenson has three Fairbanks Morse Z engines, all the plug oscillator style, including a 6 HP, 3 HP, and a 2 HP that was made only one year. Between us both we have several Fairbanks engines.'
