Ever see one of these motors?

Recommended Posts

I was looking around my pole shed today and remember seeing this motor previously. It was today though that I figured I'd see if ya'll know anything about it. Its a single cylinder made by Fairbanks-Morse. This is the only one Ive ever seen. What could it have been used for and how old do you think it is. I searched the web and came up with minimal info. Thanks guys![img][/img][img]/club2/attach/ac808/~ce82.jpg[/img]

I think it could have been used on just about anything. Maybe a grain auger, irrigation pump, or air compressor? It looks like the base was down in the dirt........

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
