Fairbanks Morse Diesel

I am not sure about the Y but most of the big Fairbanks with the big flywheel weigh 5 ton for the engine and 5 ton for the flywheel.

One of my Fairbanks manuals lists the approximate shipping weight of 16,000 pounds for the 60hp. Depending on what flywheel and attachment options it could weigh in a whole lot more. My little 40hp vertical has a flywheel that must have been the special electric option as it is 8000 pounds all by itself. The outboard pulley and bearing setup are a big chunk that also add more weight to the engine.
