Default Fairbanks Morse engine

Would anyone have any idea what model this engine would be?

From the remains that I see it is a Y-VA but I don't know if it would be a 32A or 32B. Could even be a little later than that but I can't see enough of it and the head is missing which would give a few more clues.

Scott, it apears to be smaller than most of them, that is an old car tire next to the flywheel. I think they used the tire to start it. What was the smallest of that type of engines that they built?

Were you able to get to the governor housing to see if there was any type of tag on it or serial number stamped in? I still think it is one of the smaller Y-VA engines but I know Fairbanks made many styles and sizes of engines and especially the flywheels for them. Does this engine happen to be for sale and if so are you buying it?

The smallest HP in that style was the 40Hp and was a 12" bore I believe.

Scott, I haven't seen it, a guy gave me a picture of it and I am trying to check it out. I was wondering what it might weigh.

The weight would be hard to guess without knowing it for sure what it is and how much is there. The flywheel looks wider than mine to me so I would say total weight would be 10-12,000? Do you know what it is attached to? A generator or pulley setup or?

It looks like it run a flat belt. The pulley and shaft doesn't look like Fairbanks Morse.

The shaft looks like Fairbanks especially where it bolts to the flywheel but the pulley I don't know about.

I had one that looked like this one with the heavy flywheel, can't be sure of the size from the picture, but my flywheel and engine each weighed 10,000.
