Re: Need a little help here.

Later model, condenser-cooled Fairbanks-Morse "Z"-probably from an oil field application? Parts shouldn't be a problem, they made a million of them...not really rare or collectible, but probably a good engine for the purpose...sorry to hear about your Dad, it's not an easy thing to deal with... Pre...
