A Wisconsin 2-cylinder engine would fit in that really nice and you wouldn't have to move the steering.

Do you know any of the history surrounding the unit? One of the great things about home-builds is the fact that they were usually built to fill a void or serve a necessary function on the farm.

Looks similar to the 4 home built tractors that Dad made for himself, Grandpa, and a couple of my Uncles. Yes, they did fill a void, and were used a LOT in the day. Here's one he built for Gramps. My Aunt driving, with 2 of my 5 sisters to each side.

Nifty-looking tractor frame you got there, new restorer. You could do something with that. The rear-end sort of looks like the one on my Panser. olcowhand, that is an awesome photo you posted. I like that tractor! That look like a model A back tire on it!

Model A trans & rear end/rims. Chain from trans to differential. Belt tension clutch up front. Not sure what model Wisconsin. One of my cousins still has this tractor. His Dad (my Uncle) bought it at Gramp's estate sale.

Chances are he won't ever sell it. It's dear to his heart. It won't likely leave the family either, even when his time comes.

I used to have one of those, took it out of a 1948 Bus. LOL

I was replying to the 392 Hemi post.

I also had a 341 at one time as well, took it out of a VW Van.
