Denis
thanks for sharing onto the forum the neat engine find from your friend.
These types of finds (I find) are the most interesting reading.
The engine now has a new beginning and will continue its path in history.
You may want to mention of the SmokStak forum to your friend. I'm sure he would enjoy taping the knowledge from many of the collectors here and share more of his.

I think it is a model CX. Here are a couple of photos of a complete one. The green one is mine with no pump.

You need bearing Babbitt for the spindles - not plain lead metal. Different hardness and wear factors. You might be better replacing with bronze bushings - easier to obtain and will last longer!
