Default Vintage diesel identification

Does anyone know who made this diesel?

I have been looking for a vertical like it.

Would be nice to know the manufacturer.

Do you know what model?

I looked at my red Fairbanks book by Wendel, did not see a picture of an engine quite like it.

I don't think it is a Fairbanks Morse but I do not know what it is.

You probably would have to contact the auction company for more details on the engine. Looks like a crankcase cover is off, and possibly other missing parts.

I saw that this morning Wayne. It kind of looks like a Fairbanks Morse but I'm not sure. In the new pictures I did not see a tag on it. I'm hoping a vintage diesel expert will chime in here. Someone has to know who makes it.

The auction company got back to me today and they said that they just found out last night that it is a Crescent. Anyone ever heard of that make? Southern Crescent made locomotives.

It puzzles me that I can't find anything on the net about Crescent diesel engines. Maybe the spelling is incorrect. It seems to be going cheap enough. I'll probably submit a bid on it tomorrow. Still wish I had more info on it though.

Jim, when I googled Crescent, Southern Cross kept coming up, but it was mostly locomotive content. I'll search that a little more. I even tried an image search and could find nothing that resembles the auction pictures of that engine.

Greetings, Viewed this engine approximately 10+ years ago. An older gentleman in NC. owned it at that time. It was in a stage of disassembly then. I believe the piston was stuck but most components were there. Rumor had it that the crank was broke. Not quite sold on that. Trying to source my old pix to review notes and condition. It is not an FM. Very neat engine. Enuf Said.
