  • Hi Trevor!  I am sure that this type of engine would be an ideal case for restoration.  Let us hope that this page may help stimulate the whereabouts of other vertical engines made by F & P.  John B

  • John, during the past 30 years of putting the engine register together I have not heard of one vertical oil engine, but I don’t believe that none are in existance.

    This would be an ideal size of engine for restoration.
