1924 Fairbanks 1 1/2 HP


This is Chuck's 1924 Fairbanks Morse model Z 'dishpan'. It's a 1 1/2 HP throttle governed. The name 'Dishpan' is given to this engine by collectors, because the flywheels, when removed, look like dishpans. This engine is running on a battery and buzz coil, though it should have a magneto. Chuck has the magneto, but needs a spiral cut gear in order to make it work.
