Default Old Cotton gin

This gin was built In South Mississippi in the early twenties, closed over forty years ago, and torn down this week..But both Fairbanks-Morse type "Y" engines are still there! a single cylinder...Looks like about a 40 horse, and a two cylinder either 80 or 100 horse. More later...

And just WHY don't you have these already loaded on a trailer and headed for your house?????(grin)

Seriously, I think just about all of us would like to have something like this in the backyard. Nothing like the cough of a big engine at 4a.m. on a Sunday so the neighbors know your home!

I agree. Those are not too big to move. Where are they? I'd like to have them.

I certainly hope someone gets them and takes good care of them! I sure would like to have the one cylinder!

We are working on it! If they hadn't torn the old building down we wouldn't have found them.

Default Re: Old Cotton gin, Weight??

What do you think the weight is of the 2 cyl.?? There are 2 of them locally, and the building has fallen down. A friend of mine might be doing the demo. job, and I am considering taking them, but will need a crane.

Nice find David: The twin cyl. looks like a 32E Model. Itlooks exactly like our 150 hp. at Flywheeler Park, except it might be smaller. Don't let em get away!!
