I did my fall cleaning of the garage & once again I move my D4-7 bush hog I am slowly restoring. It's been one thing after the next with this thing.

The wisconsin engine S7D models gov failed and my friend was driving. I heard the RPM go through the roof & as I'm screaming to hit the kill switch, I heard it lock up. He didn't know about the switch and he felt terrible, but I'm not upset at him about it at all, it's just one of those things that happen.

That was 2 years ago. The engine is in pieces now, and needs to be rebuilt. I simply don't have the knowledge to do it as I've never done that before, nor do I have the time.

I would like to know if there is anyone in Rhode Island, CT or Mass that is willing to rebuilt this engine for me? Time frame, your cost, cost of parts, details are what I require as this engine is holding up the entire project.

Please let me know, and thank you very much!

Thats a shame. I'm sure you would like to rebuild what you have but if all else fails you could always swap it for another. I know to some people that isn't an option but just an idea. I hope you can find someone and finally get that thing going in your favor. Good luck and I would love to see some pics of what you have done so far....

I have a TRA-10D and another S7D engine but the crankshaft is different in both. Even if one can get swapped over, I'm ok with that.

I'll post photos once it gets going again. I'm going to need to repaint everything, tires, the works. But once this engine is done, that's going to be a ton of weight off my chest. Rebuilding the transaxle currently.

Titus how bad are the internal parts? Did anything break? If the block is ok and the majority of the components cam, crank ect... are ok then it shouldn't be to bad to rebuild. I see someone on Ebay has parts from an S7d they stripped down. Also we might be able to use the other S7d you have as a donor.

Just let me know a little more on it. Then I'll get back to you.

I have a full plate atm and this storm we are getting has put even more on my plate. But things should start winding down a bit for me in the next couple weeks.

Oh and get me the numbers off the engine if you have them.

Thanks Chris.

Hi Chris,
Nothing broken inside. Block seems fine, but now the cylinder wall has some rust on it, so if that engine is chosen, then it will likely have to be bored oversized. However I do have my donor S7D engine, I would like to go down that road and use the original crankshaft. So all in all, all the parts should be here just need to swap the crankshaft.

I will get you the numbers and thank you very much!

Same here! I am surrounded by huge old oak trees. I just got done getting my house and my Dad's house ready. plenty of supplies and all generators up and running.

now we just wait and see. During Irene we were out of power for 7 days.

You also stay safe and I'll talk to you soon

What numbers did you need? Serial Numbers or? Model numbers I assume, just checking.

Glad to hear you're ok. Power companies busted their behinds all this week getting power back on to everyone.

Any numbers you can find will be a great help.

And yes the power company had a lot of work to do, so 5 days with no power wasn't bad considering the amount of trees on wires and poles snapped just in my area.
