Talking 25 kW, 120/240 Volt, Single Phase, 1200 RPM Fairbanks Morse

Not really in LA, but Illinois. Wouldn't matter. As much as I'd love to have it, there just wouldn't be any way...

But maybe someone here will snap it up!

The ad says "$2,000.00 or make a reasonable offer". I wonder what the seller considers a "reasonable offer" for a far past it's prime generator for which parts are NLA? It belongs in a private collection or maybe a county fair where it could be demonstrated to the public for a few days every year.

Yes, I love the gauges too! But what is the top center one?

He does state that it runs and generates. That puts it above most ads we see.

I would say that the top center gauge is the tachometer.

Nice big tach! I like that itís a slow speed 1200 RPM unit too. Probably good for looong operating runs.
