Always Great seeing these Wisconsin's brought back from the dead.

If you need any parts help or literature let me know

Thanks! I was hoping to see a pic of a nicer engine ID tag and find out an approximate weight of this engine. I do know the tube or hose between the air filter and carb is missing and may need to be a formed one. I really don't know if anything else is missing yet.

That's 14.6hp. What's interesting to me is that the THD made 16.8hp with a bore of 3 1/4 with stroke of 3 1/4, while the TJD made 18.2hp with a 3 1/4 bore and a shorter 3" stroke.

 

 

Shorter stroke makes more HP...

I don't think a starter/generator combo will have enough umph to spin that engine. 

 

For the breather tube on mine I went to O'Reillys and and got a heat riser tube for a car or pickup. Think it was about $2.

It looks like aluminum foil and is flexible so you can put the offset into it to make it fit.  I got the idea because its the same as the heat riser [from the heat shield on the exhaust manifold - to the air breather] on my GMC Suburban.   Just tell them what diameter you need.

Its a snug enough fit it stays put.  I just idle around at shows and parades with mine.  If it was a working engine or in a dusty environment I'd use a generac radiator hose with the correct offset shape, cut it to desired length, and put clamps on the ends.

Thanks Kris, great idea about the heat riser tube! I know exactly what you mean and think I have a couple of used ones around here.

 

I may use a car starter for an electric setup then.

No. Just revs up faster.

Well, here's a picture of my old R12T with a Wisconsin TE on it.  I've seen a few of them with the TFs before, but don't have my own picture of one, I'm afraid.  Instead, I do have a Shaw Catalog on my website that mentions the R12T with a Wisconsin TF.  Here's a link to the brochure:

Check on page six.  Here's a picture of my old Shaw with the TE:

I'd love to see a 2 cylinder Gibson!

I have a 1951 TF powered Shaw R12T I could post a couple pictures of if you'd like.

Thanks, Rob

They don't seem to mention the fact that the TJD had a different firing arraignment. The other twins had pistons that went up and down together. The TJD pistons operated alternately. Possibly, could this give more HP?
