Next set of pics with engine getting set on its new base. Note here !!!
[I have seen many of these big engines at various shows around the country but never ran across one set up on its original factory foundation. This set of pics were taken several hours after the last. We made several changes in hookups to get it finally down on its foundation with just a 2X4 at each end for temporary support. This week Saturday several of our volunteers spend several hours jacking leveling and shimming the engine. From last week till today the building crew [same guys Art, Dave, George Ned et al] erected all the upright posts and installed all the lower walls getting ready to put up the big carrying beams.

I have to remember in future to do this more often. Pic No 1 is what the scene looked like when I showed up late today [2 PM]. You can see all the upright posts in place and the 80D ready to lift them. The beams are 2X12 Lams 3 thick and 48 Ft long and heavy as all get out. Pic No 2 shows George swinging the 38 Ft tube we made up of 8 inch dia. 1/4 inch wall tubing that the Zagrays dragged home from someplace 30 years ago. Pic No 3 shows the tube in place just above the beams. It is strapped the beams with 6 nylon slings. Once connected George easily lifted each beam effortlessly into their positions atop the uprights. Without Georges crane this would have been a really tough job but with it we had them all up in 1 hour. Ed B

The last few pics for tonight. Pic No 1 has Dave Chester up in our manlift guiding the hardest beam in place since it is 20FT off the floor. It makes the whole job easier and safer all around. Last Pic is a view of the engine in place and the skeleton of a building rising around it. This gives us a feel for how big this building will be when finished. We have our July show next weekend July 16-17 and we may have some of the rafters in place by then. I suspect in 2-4 more weeks it will be closed in and a roof in place. Once the building is complete work we will move back to getting the engine back together if we can find all the parts. Thanks for coming along for the ride. Ed B

Smile Re: Fairbanks Morse 4 cylinder 32E14 Engine

more progress on Sunday. We installed the front beam, set and secured all four beams, and started on rafters. The guys can set them faster than I can cut them from a pattern now that we have done the gables and the center sets. I think I'll spend some time on Tuesday cutting rafters to get ahead.

The engine crew moved, cleaned, prepped, and set the alternator while we were being carpenters. George on the 80D crane was flawless, and the cherry picker allowed us to set rafters 18 feet in the air with ease!

Stay tuned!

Looks like the engine crew just beat the rafter crew in getting the generator set. That is going to be a fine display once set up and running. Keep the updates coming!

I posted this on the Atlas thread as well...

Still pushing in this heat to get the roof on. Saturday was really unbearable and then the sky opened up and poured. We had to scramble to get tools. The guys thought a cupola would be appropriate so they started one and had just cut the roof when the rain started! Got the gable ends complete and ready for roofing this weekend, along with the majority of the hurricane clips.
Still plenty of punch list items, but we are progressing!

I think that cupola will help in the summer! Hope to be up there again soon to help put the building together.

What a great project! Is that Northwest 80D powered by a Murphy engine? It looks an awesome machine.

Hugh Yes the Northwest is powered by a big 6-Cylinder Murphy diesel. George Jarvis is a die hard Northwest and has 3 80D's on the grounds, a Big Shovel front, a 60 ft. dragline and the short boom unit that lifted the Fairbanks. Last year he also supplied us with an extra Murphy to power out 1879 Lane Saw Mill. You know George is serious when you see his license plate on his old Ford work truck which reads 80D. Ed B

We are working on a 2 cylinder 32E14 sitting on the original design foundation, the original design exhaust well, and the original exhaust stack outside the building at Badger Steam and Gas at Baraboo Wisconsin. We also have a one cylinder Fairbanks in good shape and a 3 cylinder in poor shape. Our goal is to get the 2 cylinder running for the 2017 show.

Dear Drumlin Good luck on your 2 Cyl. project. My family and I attended your show around 1988 when they featured MM Tractors. Even back then it was a great showground. I have attended many shows across the country over the years and those visits have been very helpful in our development of the Zagray Farm Museum here in CT. We hope to have our engine running by this time next year. It has turned into a major project but will be well worth all the effort. Ed B

Work is moving along at a rapid pace on the Engine building with hope to have it fairly complete for our show Oct 1-2. Pic No 1 is a good view of the Big engine with the generator mounted waiting to be leveled and attached to the engine. Right now we will put that on hold till the building is finished around it. Pic No 2 shows Marc and Andy working on the cupola on the roof. It has 3 windows on each side that can be opened when engines are running. This also makes the building a bit more interesting.

The crew has started to apply the pine outer sheathing on the building. We always go with 3 layers Plywood - Tar paper - Pine boards. Pic No 1 is a long view of the new building. Pic No 2 shows the progress on the pine sheathing with our man lift being well used. This unit which was donated to the club has turned out to be the best thing we have ever received. Art told me that we could not have done this building without this lift and in fact we would have had to rent one if we didn't have this one. Pic No 3 is the back roof as work progressed on cupola. Last Pic shows out F-M waiting to be brought back to life. Ed B

You guys are doing excellent work. That building is nice!! I can't wait to see a video of that engine running, hopefully nice and slow. There are few things that sound as cool as a 4 cylinder 32E14 running really slow. The rhythm they make is unreal.

We are expecting to get to 'substantially complete' on the building this weekend, and nice weather is predicted.

Then we can turn our attention to the engine - final set of the alternator, piping for fuel, starting air, and radiator feed and return. We need a filter setup for the air intake, but i think Ed has access to some industrial filters that will work.
We need to do a bit of assembly work as well, the platform and ladder, a small concrete pour for the ratchet mechanism that bars the motor over, and numerous other items.

We are excited to have it this far!

The Fairbanks collector that bought our 3 cylinder came up from VA to pick up some of the remaining parts for his engine and see our set-up. We got our engine guys together and received a great tutorial on the remaining installation and cleaning items, as well as the care and feeding of the engine. We videotaped the entire tutorial. We are confident we can get the engine ready to run in the spring. The VA collector will return and help us do the first start as well.


We have figured out how our exhaust will be set up, the fuel system will be an HD11 bulldozer fuel tank that's handy, and the cooling will use a CAT D8 radiator piped out back with an electric fan.

I can't wait till start up!
