Question SS newbie w/F-M's

I'm new to Smokstak, so hi!

It would be nice if I could find some folk familiar with F-M 1.5 & 2HP engines, regarding disassembly/re-assembly. Hoping it's the correct place, I'm looking in the

SmokStak > SmokStak® Antique Engine Community > Antique Gas Engine Discussion

area for help with these engines, in detail. If there are archived threads regarding this, please advise. Thanks!

Welcome to the Stak!

If you have any specific questions, just start a thread and ask away.

The small Fairbanks-Morse flywheel engines are easy to understand and work on. Everything's straightforward.

If you've never worked on flywheel engines, you need to remember that there are a few things you have to be careful about. There were some potmetal (diecast zinc alloy) parts in them and they are fragile. Also, removing and replacing flywheels on the crankshaft is sometimes tricky.

Good luck and have a ball!

Take care - Elden
