The sign accompanying the engine. It reads
The F-1 engine has roots outside NASA: the huge booster came to the space
agency in 1958 as part of the Air Force legacy. At that time no vehicle
existed capable of using the F-1. 10 January 1962 NASA confirmed the Saturn V
would have a first stage (S-IC) powered by five F-1 engines. The F-1 was a
single-start, 1,500,000 lb fixed-thrust rocket system. The five-engine cluster
used on the S-IC of the 363 ft Saturn V produced 7,500,000 lbs of thrust.
