does the Ford drive a compressor for the orange tank which stores energy/drives that large pulley?
Seems like a buy just for the 144/?/200 ford6.
I'd throw in some cash just to get yer Q answered!

:thumbup: That's a nice power unit for the price. It looks like it's has a Ford 300 or 240 big block six they made many configurations with those industrial engines. That one has an in and out lever to the clutch and with the pulleys so it could be adapted to drive many different types of farm or industrial equipment such as a generator / welder, conveyor, water pump ect.. There was a recent post over on the Big Six forum (see link below) that discussed and showed many of the different uses for the Ford six powered equipment. Good luck :nod:

It is the big six. I've seen them in wood chippers too. It seems they run forever. B RON CO. Still workin' on it!
