Default 10 H.P. hopper cooled FBM Z

Can anyone give me a general idea of what a early 10 H.P. Hopper cooled Faribanks Z would be worth restored? I dont have the slightest clue. I have the chance to get one, but this one needs ALOT of work. Just want to know if I want to put the work in it. But knowing me, I'll have it anyway

Is it the 1914 pattern Sumter, 1918 pattern Sumter, or a Sparkplug engine? The 1914 pattern is the neatest of them all.

I could'nt tell you Jason, the mag is missing and the engine tag is missing, so I dont know what year it is. But it is an ignitor engine.

They are easily identified by the mixer, the earliest engines had a fuel pump made of brass mounted externally below the mixer and the later pattern had the fuel pump built into the mixer.

Also the tag did not have the serial number stamped on them, the serial number was stamped on top of the water hopper and also on the base at the point the hopper is bolted to the base on the top.

What you have there is the 1914 pattern engine.
