Default Fairbanks-Morse 6hp Z

Hello everyone. I am a third generation owner of a Canadian Fairbanks-Morse 6hp Z, model C. I am having difficulty trying to figure out the year it was manufactured. The serial numbers on the water hopper "C28_89" could not make out the middle digit. The magneto is a "AB33". It was built in Toronto, Ontario. It was used on the St. Lawrence Seaway, known as the "Welland Canal". Everything is original and runs like a charm. I fire it up every month for the last 30 years. I would appreciate any information you can pass on to me. Cheers. Rick

Sorry I can't help you with any information, but Welcome Aboard SmokStak.

Sounds like the engine is in good hands there and being well cared for with that routine starting regiment.

I hope you weren't discouraged by the lack of responce in 4 almost 5 months. I didn't see it at all until the thread just got revived.

Hi Rick Maybe put some more pictures of your engine in.
I am a third generation owner of a MF model Z. Mine is a 1926 model Z 6HP. My Family has been using sense the 30's sawing lobster pot parts, small planks, boards and most anything you can fit on the slide table.
Anyway sure someone will know you engine. Lets see some more of it.
Cheers NorEaster.
