Default Newby Oil Field guy in Amarillo Texas

Hey Guys, My name is Dustin. I live in amarillo Tx and I have 50 oil wells out near Borger and I help my dad operate another 90 from there to pampa. I have always loved the old Oil Field equipment and never knew there was a whole segment of people that loved the engines involved. I have two Superior 40 hp single cylinder motors out in the field that used to run the pumpng units on and old lease here. Ive been thinking about restoring them. What do you guys think. Gonna take some work to get em out out. I cant imagine what they wiegh!

thanks for looking
Dustin

The Superiors you have are great running engines. I had one and loved to hear it bark to life. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Hi Dustin, welcome to the stak. Those are great looking engines. I do not have any large engines. All mine are 5hp or smaller. I really enjoy them. Have fun with your engines. Bill K

Love the guard rail!!! i don't know nothing bout big engines but if their running i wouldn't mess with them.(hard and real heavy) You thinking bout building a trailer for them to haul around? Showing them??? Come up with a plan.

Hey Dustin!

Yep. You're in the right place. And I'll go out on a limb and say the group would love to see those big engines thumping away at a show some day. Restored or not, they will be enjoyed by all!

Thanks for sharing photos of your engines! I bet they would play some nice music when running!

Thanks guys. These things are huge and going to take some work to get out of the field. Pretty excited about working on them though.
