Fairbanks-Morse 1 HP Engine

Here, in full color, is the photo of Nigel Mc Burney's Fairbanks-Morse 1 HP 'Jack-of-All-Trades' engine which appeared in the Reflections column (21/7/6) in the July 1986 issue of GEM.

This photo is of a 1929 Rumely Oil Pull restored by John Stefanyk of 13311-116 St., Edmonton, Alberta, Canada T5E 5H8. According to an article in the Edmonton journal, Stefanyk bought the tractor in 1976 for $350 as a 'retirement project.' Through the process, Stefanyk bought a parts tractor and spent a lot on specially-machined new parts. 'But, so what?' he says. 'I don't smoke. When you retire, it's a nuisance if you've got nothing to do.' Stefanyk also collects stationary gas engines, and model trains.
