Fairbank Morse "Z" 1915 1 1/2hp

ModelsWorkshopEngine shed

I bought this in 1993 as the owner thought it too far gone to repair. No electrics and a big split down the front of the hopper. I got the ignitor from Frank McCutcheon in Texas and the LT generator was found at the Toowoomba swap meet. The crank guard was made from sections cut from a gas bottle, welded together. You wouldn't pick it from the original. The split was ground out and filled with "Belzona". A perfect repair.
