Engine History

The former crab-processing plant in Port Wakefield, Alaska, has an Atlas-Imperial diesel engine in one of its abandonned buildings. The town of Port Wakefield was largely abandonned following the 1964 earthquake, with the processing plant relocated to Port Lions.

The engine was likely installed in the plant during the 1940s or 1950s. It is a marine model, manufactured before 1936, and likely powered a fishboat before coming to Wakefield.
