Default Proud owner of Fairbanks Morse 118

New to Smokstak and new to the hit miss engine hobby. I am 47 years old, married w/ 2 grown children & 2 grandchildren. Been in Law Enforcement for 22 years and have worked in the oil field part time on & off. Have always enjoyed tinkering with small engines and really became fascinated with hit miss engines when working in the oilfield. Just aquired a Fairbanks Morse ZC 118 non working & missing some parts but nothing major overall. Thanks to this forum I have really learned alot about the 118. I will be asking alot of questions as this is new territory for me and the first I guess is where to begin on this thing? LOL! Look forward to all the wisdom this site has to offer. THANKS!
David

Welcome to the Stak!

118's are good running engines.

David: I'm also a Law Enforcement Officer in Washington State. I have also purchased a Fairbanks ZC 208 12hp and it is missing a carb and mag. If you fine someone with parts let me know. Thank You.
