Default 15 HP Fairbanks-Morse went to a good home

I just sold my 15 HP Fairbanks Morse but it went to a good home where it will actually do some work running a lumber planer. It was a bit heavier than it looked but with a little work it finally ended up in place.

That is COOL, I would love to see it work . Maybe a Utube of it finishing a board?

Wayne had all the refurbishing done on this great old engine. Now it's my turn to put it to work. It'll be running my old Goldie & McCullough 6X24" planer in a permanant set-up. This engine is in excellent condition and has loads of compression. Wayne had the American Bosch AB-33 Ed1 mag rebuilt and is firing good. Will definitely post a Youtube video later on. It should have lots of power to run my little planer, years ago it actually ran a sawmill in Cape Breton N.S. . Thanks Wayne.
