Saturday a neighbor of mine went to a local auction for a guy that used to tinker with engine (small and large). We were both hoping to get a few wisconsins and perhaps some other things as well. We ended up purchasing two wisconsin AEN engines. Both were free and looked as though they were in the process of being restored (one had cleaned parts and repainted shrouds) One of the Wisc.s had a 'reducer' attached. I guess its a rpm reducer, something like a two-speed transmission so to speak. We also got some honing equipment, ignition testers, rod straightness tester, etc., etc.
Here's the question: We got the engines for $50 (repaint) and $60 (with reducer). Is this a very good price, or just we did OK. Either way, I am happy. Thought I would share.
