We don't have a show but may have something of interest to those of you engine people.
We have an old engine as follows: Fairbanks Morse Model 37 F 16 HP 1200 RPM 300 Serial # 968487 .
It is a very large (30/40 tons) 6 cyl diesel with a single cyl compressor on the front.
It was designed in 1937 and has a 16 inch bore with a 20 inch stroke. It is a marine engine and runs with both direction rotation.
This engine is located near Vancouver BC Canada in a boat on the Fraser River.
It was running well 20 or so years ago but as the boat sat unattended metal thieves took the copper and stainless tubing, but the main parts are all there still.
For more information on engines like this go to http://www.oldtacomamarine.com/index.shtml and click on Fairbanks Morse
Our question is; can we find someone that would want to have it to restore or should we sell it for scrap?
Please be so kind as to attempt to save this special engine. Email us of your interest or any contacts you may have or better still pass this to anyone that could have an interest.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give us Bert & Ed
