Default Fairbanks Morse 2 hp 1927 "Z"

Almost done with restore. Just waiting for backordered gas caps. I ran it last Sat. on kerosene and it ran great. Enjoy.

Hello riverman, your f/m looks just like mine except mine is a zc. Cannot get the thing to run smooth. Sounds like a hit n miss. Tried different springs on the compensater. Running mine on gas. What is the difference. Thanks rustdust in nc.

Very nice job.

I have an old Fairbanks Morse in my barn. It almost looks like the one you restored except of course it is not restored. It was used to pump water for our family when I was a kid (1940-50's). I think the thing will still run but have not tried it.

Have a question being I am not into these types of engines yet. Where does a person get parts for them or do you??
