Yesterday I purchased a Fairbanks Morse air cooled engine Model 1B-5
SN 115.264870 2.5 HP at 1800 RPM. i know this is not practically an old engine and so far I can't find any sites that deal with this age engine. What i really wanted was the pump which I can't find any identification on it so any help on this would also be appreciated. My understanding at one time this was unit, which is what encouraged me to buy the engine. It is loose and seems in good repair but doesn't have a carburetor, so I need one. Attached are pictures of both.
Thanks Gary

The engine that you picked up is made by D.W. Onan. I believe the original carburetor is an updraft Tillotson. Fairbanks Morse rebranded a lot of these engines. Several stakkers have these engines in their collection, so it shoudlnt be long before someone can provide the model number of the carburetor you are looking for.

I’m 99.9% sure the carb on mine is a Zenith. No idea what model the carb is though.
Here’s a video of my engine.

Did you send me a manual for this engine? If so I only got every other page. I got the odd numbered ones but not the even number pages.
