I know this is an old thread but I was just wondering if Redwing ever found a head or was able to save the 36A generator set? I recently bought a restored 10hp 36A with no attachments and have found any information nearly impossible to come up with on this engine. I am fairly certain mine was originally a compressor set up but all the extras are long gone now. How long did they make the 36A and what all were they used for?

Scott, My volume 10 (1945) "Diesel Engine Catalog" lists the model 36 in 1,2,3,4,& 6 cyl of 4 1/2 X 6 bore and stroke having 10 HP/cyl and a larger model 36 of 5 1/2 7 1/2 in 6 & 8 cyl giving 20 HP/cyl. My next dated catalog of 1954 doesn't list the model 36 but lists engines of similar output made by Harnischfeger and Sheppard.
Model 36 described as medium speed, intended for hard continuous work in the stationary,industrial and marine fields. Industrial they list: locomotive cranes, power shovels, air compressors, small locomotives and similar. The larger engines were said to be designed to allow conversion to gaseous fuel. A very robust design with the crankshaft and bearings carried in the base NOT the cylinder block. Bearings and internals were accessed through the covers on the side.

Scott, not sure how long they made them, but they had many uses.

My engine was originally an air starting compressor but all I have is the engine unfortunately. It is a 1943 by the serial number stamped in the base. The flywheel is very wide at almost 6 1/2" wide. Most I have seen were maybe up to 4" wide. The picture of the tag stamped in the radiator shroud reads Diesel Starting Air Compressor #1. Would anyone know if it might have possibly been in a ship or maybe used in a electric generating plant for the air start tanks?
