Default 1936 Fairbanks Morse Model 32D .

Running in Pottsville Oregon. Hard to tell from a video but this thing shakes the Ground when it runs.

Tell me this is not the coolest thing, I would just love to have one of these in my backyard ! for parties and to run a generator when the power goes out.

One post threads are no fun, what would you do with this thing was in your backyard or I guess post your favorite engine video, they start popping up after viewing this one.

Fairbanks Morse and Company was an American manufacturing company in the late 19th and early 20th century. Originally a weighing scale manufacturer, it later diversified into pumps, engines, windmills, locomotives and industrial supplies until it was merged in 1958. It used the trade name Fairbanks-Morse.

"In the late nineteenth century, Fairbanks Morse & Company continued to expand its now very diverse product line. The Company began producing oil and naptha engines in the 1890s. The Fairbanks Morse gas engine became a success providing power for irrigation, electricity generation, and oilfield work. Small power plants built by Fairbanks Morse by were popular and evolved by burning kerosene in 1893, coal gas in 1905, and semi-diesel in 1913."

There are no germs on an engine, Its also funny how people look at you after doing mechanic work like your "all dirty" when the things run @ 100C + and are quite sterile.

An engine is actualy very clean when it comes to germs.


I just love myth busting.

I don't think that thing was running on all 4 cylinders. Really don't know why I watched all 7 mins.

I saw smoke rings and exaust from all four only during the hard acceleration, I will look in the backround for the operator of the thing.

My guess is there is a throttle for each cylinder.

I watched the whole thing cause the sound of it was kind of hypnotic.

Was he trying to prove it could run on 1 cylinder? The cylinder closet to the camera was not really running all that much. Only when he went to restart it. Wonder if that diesel will fit in my Bayliner 19?

Looks like all the spectators got a good dusting of soot. I'm no expert but I can't imagine that thing was running right.

Jay Leno showed a steam engine on one of the segments in his garage... you basically couldn't stop it once you got it started, and it would run forever. It had open spokes and no guards on it. All cast iron.

Very simple but kinda cool, and crazy dangerous. Probably on YouTube somewhere.

There was one of them in the first Tug I ever worked on in Boston. It was the Mary D and was built for steam in 1898 and then converted to deisel with that Fairbanks Morse engine in the late 20s or early 30s. Had to clean out the exaust with Ice chisels to break the charcoal chunks off. The injecters were the size of a rolling pin.
I believe the pistons were 18 inches accross and the stroke was 2 feet. Quite the machine.
