second engine: Ajax (4ft flywheel 8" thick) two cycle
third engine: Superior Type CM two cycle. one cylinder 560 cid

sorry for the quality of the pics. It was late and cold.

thanks.

Greg.

Greg, I have a manual that lists the 346 with 41" flywheels and a 503 has
46 1/2" flywheels. The shipping weight for these engines are without the clutch and pulley: 346 - 2290 lbs. and the 503 - 2755 lbs. Did this engine have a tag on it saying that it was a 503?
I don't know what the 8 1/2 X 10 Ajax weighs, but that MawDigger is HEAVY.
Hope this helps a little.
Allan

my bad, I had measured and wrote down 41" for he 503 when in fact I was measruring a 346.
Now I just need to figure out what I am going to do with all these engines and how to move them all.
thanks.

Talking Re: Fbm 503

If you can get that Ajax running with good rings and clean port holes, I will guarantee you that the neighbors will know when you fire it up. They are awesome sounding. I have never seen one at an engine show, but would be a great attention getter. I would like to see more of the oilfield engines in these shows. Most of them are getting a lot of age on them, even though they are the newer kids on the block.
From the number 1 Fairbanks oilfield engine fan,
Allan

The 346 weighs 2,290 pounds. With 1,110 of those pounds being the flywheels. It has a 7'' bore and 9'' stroke. I Dont have my ajax book here at home but I"ll look tomorrow when I get to work. If you have to start looking for parts call Hit & Miss. If he doesnt have what your looking for email me at DWaggoner@arrowengine.com
