Default Fairbanks Morris 52 and 118 info/value?

**Link to pictures at the bottom**

I helped my employer clean out one of our old storage buildings before we sold the land it was on. Among all sorts of oilfield tools were these two gas engines. I believe one is a FM ZC-52 and the other is a ZC-118. It appears the 118 was pulled from service because one of the brackets holding the radiator cracked and allowed the fan to get into the radiator fins. Both are not stuck and appear to be in good shape. They are covered in grease/oil but I haven't cleaned them off just to be safe. I believe these have been stored inside this building since they were pulled from service years ago. All of our wells have been run on electric for decades so I'm not sure when these were last used.

I told my boss I knew the best place to check to get more information on these(I came on here 18 months ago for more info after finding some massive superior engines on another one of our old oil leases). Any help you can provide is appreciated.

Here is a link to the photos. I will post a few examples in this thread.

Depends, I see them go from $100.00 to $1000.00 depending on the buyer. Personally I've rather have the 52 than the 118. I passed on some 118s recently for $200.00 apiece. 118s are not all that uncommon, if you are selling set on them till oil comes back up. The 52 is a novelty, it's price will be determined by the buyers desire.
