Pretty cool. I like the smoke rings it puffs out about 3 minutes in. What was that engine used for?

Reminds me of the Great Oregon Steam-up. The place is a hazy of smoke in the afternoon after all the steam powered, diesel, powered, and gas powered stuff has been running all day. It's a great place for a gear-head that loves the old technology.

I do not know which model Engine it is but in WWII Fairbankmorse Engines were used as Engines on Submarines.

The last one I saw was a Generator Engine on a Ship.

You would likely see them in stationary Engine applications.

They used these engines for everything from municipal water systems, power generation, etc. We used to have a 3 cylinder Wolverine. That was a great engine!
