Default P&H inline 6 cylinder

I'm picking this up this week. It's badged as a Fairbanks Morse. I really need to know the weight so I can decide what to take to fetch it. If anyone has any idea if be grateful.

I've no idea of condition. I bought it online auction based on pictures. I didn't see the pic of the tach stuck at 3,000 rpms so hopefully it wasn't a run away. If so it will just be a large, heavy conversation piece.

Don’t know exact but it looks similar in size and design to other engines I’ve dealt with that are just under 3000lbs

Also, that turbo! Wow! It’s huge

Guess I'm not sticking it in the bed of my truck then. It's supposed to have alot of aluminum in it. I was hoping it was comparable to Cummins 6bt. I did find a post where the 3 cylinder version weighs 1300 lbs

The 687C was also a 4.5" bore, 5.5" stroke engine, but typically rated 150-190hp @ 1800rpm. The 687 ranged from 1900 to 3000lbs depending on the configuration. The marine hardware added a lot of weight. I would safely say that your engine is up near 3000lbs with that skid, air cleaner, turbocharger and all. I just happened to notice that your engine has provision for dual starters. That is really unusual on an engine of that size. It appears to have lived a nice sheltered life indoors, hopefully it was well cared for. P&H put the dry weight of the engine on the aluminum valve cover tag. Perhaps that information is still there. Im pretty sure every P&H had an aluminum crankcase. It is said that these engines had lots of issues with cavitation if the proper coolants were not used. In particular the aluminum blocks corroding out around the wet liner o-rings, allowing coolant to dump into the oil.

We'll I got it home. I'll have to see what kind of mechanical condition it's in later. I have to do something else right now.

I have some pics of tags today. If anyone has any information on this engine I'd appreciate it. Particularly looking for fuel system, timing, it has some oddball cooling system (marine maybe), and it appears to have a 24 volt starter which I have no experience with. None of the starting system is wired and I have no idea where to start with that. Thanks.

Give the RoosaMaster number off the pump to a pump shop, they should be able to tell you the engine model. Maybe also timing specs.
The 1800 RPM is like a genset engine, maybe FB used the P&H engine for one of their electrical sets.
