I was looking threw a 60s Montgomery wards catalog. It has a Wisconsin engine repower kit for a gravely walk behind. Has anyone seen one of these or have one? The kit for a repower was $189.00. I never knew there was such a thing.

I've never seen one live but I did have a guy buy parts off of me to fix his.  The engine was a Wisconsin BKN, a very nice strong engine.  I'd like to have one, the BKN would have a built-in governor which was be a great improvement on the old T-Head add on unit.  That's my least favorite thing on the old L's.
