A modern stationary engine at a recently abandoned Cranberry Bog located in Harwich Massachusetts. Rumor has it the owner had to let the cranberry operation  go for back taxes. Photos taken in July 2001.

The Engine Shed


The Engine

A 4.3 or 3.8 GM V6 I think. A small block chevy V8 ran this pump for many years. A straight 6 was in the other shed. Both ran on propane.

The Old Engine

This engine sat in the center of the bog and drove the pump thru a long flat belt. It sat unused  in the bog until someone hauled into the woods sometime in the early ninetys. I couldn't get close enough to get good pictures. it was full of yellow jackets.  Any ideas what it is??
