34/12/4 A Great Find!

Ed Ferguson, 605 Lake Placid Drive, Sequin, TX 78155 sends a photo of an engine on the Rogue River at Grants Pass, Oregon. He saw it on a jet boat excursion, and was told it was a Fairbanks-Morse installed in 1942 to pump water. Ed had no opportunity to make further inquiry about the engine, but sent along some information that may be of help in rescuing the engine:

Hellgate Jetboat Excursionss Grants Pass Jetboats Inc., 966 SW 6th Street, Grants Pass, OR 97526-3103 Phone: (800) 648-7204 email:

If anyone is able to acquire this engine, Ed would like the finder to keep him informed of its acquisition and restoration. (And so would we!)

34/12/5 Help Wanted!
