Photo Fairbanks-Morse what is it?


Usually I hang-out over on the Lug & Cleats forum. However, I need the help of the pro's. Checkout the attached picture:

I know its a Fairbanks-Morse and that it ran a pulpwood conveyor between 1926 and 1933. In fact two of these engines are still on the site. However, I know nothing about them beyond being very big single cylinder diesels.

Now oh Great Obiwan's of the diesel world feed me your knowlege.

I've got a picture of a big 2 cyl Diesel, Fairbanks I think , Its being pulled by a team of horses, and there are 2 other horse drawn wagons behind it pulling the flywheels and other parts? But I cant figure out how to post it here! Its in a PDF format If anyone wants to try to figure it out and post it here please let me know and I'll send it to you.

Your picture appears to be a Model 32, Style VA. They were made in 1 to 6 cylinders and were either 12"x15" or 14"x17". They were the first cold start diesel engines of American design. Discontinued around 1930. Gary
