Default Fairbanks NB Carburetor ID Help

Trying to determine what size Fairbanks engine this carburetor is from? Were tractor and stationary engines carburetors different? Two casting number, LJ207A and LJ32A Any help is appreciated... Mark

From what I've seen the carbs on the tractors and engines are the same except for the air piping. This one has a different cap on it than I've seen. Usually they are threaded in - this has a flip cap. If you can get this one you'd better jump on it. They are tough to find. Do you have a bolt hole pattern measurement?

It appears that the flange is curved. Is that correct or is it just the camera angle?

It's curved to fit up to the radius of the bottom of the cylinder head that it mounts to. Jason

I think this was taken in the late 70's when it was sitting on the curve on the edge of North Platte Nebraska.

Just curious. Was that out of a installation in Nebraska? It looks like it could have been a pumping Engine with the single flywheel. There appears to be a gear peeking out of the back side of the engine on the off-side. Was that for some sort of a pump or potentially a winch?

It was on a water pumping location for the railroad in North Platte.

Thank you Chris. Do you know what the horsepower is and was the flywheel broken or was it just a single flywheel pumping engine?

I own it now, it's a 10HP Fairbanks NB, was always a single flywheel engine, currently have it running on a Z carburetor... I'll get flywheel diameter, I know it's the same as the 15HP... Mark

What is the serial number on your engine and does it have a serial tag? Jason

Glad you have the original tag. I just picked up an original tag from a 10hp NB #144581 and would have offered to reunite it if it was your engine. Jason
