A friend went to the Waverly, Nebraska show two weeks ago and found this Wisconsin. I had told him I was looking for another one of these either for parts or for another custom tractor project I have floating around in my head. He called me and said it was $50 so I told him to buy it. Been sitting in the back of one of my pickups for a week and a half now but Saturday I'll need that pickup so I took some time to check it out. It had no spark but a quick file of the points and a shot of gas and it purrs like a kitten!
When I had the plugs out I could see the front cylinder was oily and it does smoke some - barely noticable when maintaining a constant speed but it's a mosquito fogger during a quick shot of throttle.
For now I'll put the mag on my Howard Rotovator tiller and the carb is going on the "Fabricobble" tractor. If I ever get caught up and start another custom project it will be easy to make it run again.
Engine came with the large oval gas tank but I must be missing the cradle that bolts to the side of the engine - there is no way to attach the tank.
