This is my 1917 10 HP Fairbanks-Morse I purchased from Maurice
Williams from New Rockford, North Dakota. This Fairbanks came out
of an elevator near New Rockford.

When I bought the engine it was partly disassembled, but most of
it was in good shape. The 10 horse had a factory conversion to a
spark plug and magneto. The mag and impulse gear were the only
parts missing. Thanks to a fellow near Duluth, Minnesota, I was
able to get a magneto. The impulse gear came from Hit & Miss.
This engine now starts and runs very well. You’ll have to
excuse the chrome exhaust stack, but I couldn’t resist!

I’ve had the engine in a couple of parades and at the WMSTR
in Rollag, Minnesota.
