I know that is a rebadged Onan according to the way it looks and the tag.
Fairbanks rebranded everything back in the day. They never put an engine on one of their units if it didn't have their name on it. I've had a Fairbanks Wisconsin, a Fairbanks Lauson, and I've seen a Fairbanks Briggs. All have the unique tags.
It probably ran a Fairbanks genset of some sort, or maybe it was an auxiliary engine for one of the big stationary diesels. I don't know if they had an engine mounted to run an air compressor to fill the starting tanks or not.
I'd love to know what it was used for. The answer might be in C.H. Wendel's company history of Fairbanks Morse.

Kinda looks like a flat belt pulley on it, might have been a mule engine for something

Hmmmm. green...... flat belt pulley....... my guess would be.....
maybe it was the engine from a baler? small combine?
to me, the flat belt pulley says early 60s and older, and the paint says John Deere,
but maybe I'm all wet . wouldn't be the first or the last time
