Fairbanks Morse 20 HP Model N Hit and Miss Gas Engine
This 20 HP Fairbanks Morse Model N gas engine was rescued by Alan James. It came from Tanana, Alaska where it powered the telegraph station along the Yukon River. He restored it in 2003 and later sold it to the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum in Fairbanks. This startup demonstration was at the 2014 Midnight Sun Cruise-In Car Show. Unfortunately, Alan passed away last summer and attended in spirit only! The engine weighs about 10,000 pounds and made its way to Fairbanks on a barge and later by train. It starts with the aid of compressed air and a special igniter designed by Alan which uses caps from a toy cap gun and a striker.
