That would’ve been nice back in the day. But here we are. LOL there is a company out of Kerrville that still supplies them I’m told. There called Trigon Industries."Cooks said no deal."
40 years ago they may have said differently. "Hey Jerry, we got any rings yet for 12" bore Fairbanks-Morse engines?"
Jerry says back from the parts room: "Hang on."......... "Yep, we got some."...
You are exposing some lower crankcase details that may not be known even to Fairbanks-Morse operators at shows today.
Crappy part: Makes me want one. Or more. Sick part: I even thought about an 80 single, with the fat flywheel last night.
Pray tell: Have you talked about that big grey 6 cylinder engine that's in the background of some your F-M pics?
yes, I will have taken apart absolutely everything possible on the inside and outside of this engine when it’s all said and done. Probably will have learned more than I ever wanted to have learned about this thing. But, it is very rewarding and totally worth it just from all the Great people I have met in doing so. Lots of very smart guys out there willing to lend advice.
The six cylinder is from a power plant here in Texas that was being demolished. I saved it along with a generator so we can put it on display at the museum here in San Angelo. It was a great project. I believe I have a lot of it documented on engine oil field Society webpage on Facebook.
