In the 90's there was a place in Houston Tx, Cooper-Cameron iirc that worked on and supplied parts for Nordberg engines. And down at Kelly AFB there was a building full of them, the CEMRT building (Civil Engineering Maintenance Repair Technology), we used to walk through there and just drool at those monsters.

That sounds like the place where they got the one up here, I recall it came from a recycler in TX as I recall. They also sourced a replacement Superior engine from down there for one they ran out of oil. For all the work to machine an adaptor to fit to the generator, I think they could well have repaired the old unit easier.

I just might have had a hand in that, we bought several Nordbergs at KAFB in the 90's, they were already sold and went straight onto a semi headed north, too long ago for me to remember where. Also had a bunch of Superior parts and 3 engines, sold some of the parts, still have some parts, but the engines ended up as scrap after hurricane Ike.
