The O'Brien engine was made by General Machinery Corp of Hamilton Ohio. Its MCE hull number is 806 and was lunched from way 1 of either the New England Shipbuilding Corporation (NE) Originally Todd-Bath Iron Shipbuilding Corp. East Yard or the West Yard.

I have a PDF file titled Liberty Ship U.S. Maritime Commission Emergency Cargo Vessel EC2-S-C1
A National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark
designated by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers 18 September 1984
I do not know if the file is still available on line but if you can not find it and want a copy you can PM me.
