Wisconsin inline twin.... Anybody know anything about them? Do they have a variable speed governor, or are they fixed speed? I am thinking of this to repower a tractor.

They have variable speed.  VERY good engines.  All parts are available but expensive.   Heavy as heck.

Can't get your link to work.

 

Here is a tractor I built using a Wisconsin twin mounted sideways.  Try not to laugh.....

That is a classic New Holland red Wisconsin THD.  They are governed, and they have the torque.  They run slower than a modern gas engine, but they will destroy something before they stall.

 

They will last forever.  Period. 

 

They will also provide great front end ballast for your tractor.  They weigh a ton, full cast iron all around!

Can't tell if it is a THD or TJD, the TJD was the smoother running engine with slightly more hp.

 

As Ben said, good luck trying to stall it, good old thumpers.

I know where there's one sitting in a field. The exhaust pipe is aiming straight up and it's seized. I've been half tempted to get it and tear it down just to see how bad it is.

I have an old Hobart portable welder with one of those engines on it. nSure does make some pretty welds too.

I do have a magneto ignition for one of these that I am thinking about installing on My engine, then all the battery would be needed for would befor cranking to fire it up, A cranking handle would be handy too.

The Stator windings is burned out, if anyone has a good set of windings that they would be willing to part with, give Me a shout, also, a cranking handle.

I think that the governed speed for the engine on the welder is about 22 to 2,400 RPMs, but, there are different governed speeds for different applications too, I do`nt think any of them are over about 2,600 RPMs.

These engines when properly tuned and, using a crank handle, fires right up, even on some mighty cold days. This I know, from working for the DOT and having to hand crank those old tar-pots on those cold early spring mornings. LOL Just be certain that the pump was flushed out real good before shutting it down on the previous day. LOL

If that engine is fortunate enough to have a genuine Wisconsin muffler on it, it might not be stuck too bad.  The Wisconsin mufflers had drains to keep rain water out of the engine even if sticking straight up and uncovered. 

This is my garden tiller and it sits outside all year - mostly uncovered.  In the winter time I throw an old galvanized wash tub over the engine.  Rain water has never gotten in.

There is no muffler at all on that Wisconsin, unfortunately. There's just an open pipe pointing at the sky. I still might pull it apart and check the condition of it though.

The weight of the engine will probably flatten the front tires!

There are 12 holes in the governors lever.

The hole closest to where the shaft connects the lever is hole #1 the hole at the end of the lever is #12 holes one and two are not used for governor settings, according to the book. To make the fine adjustments after installing governor spring into the proper governor lever spring hole , the governor link rod is like a turnbuckle and is used to adjust the tension on the spring until the desired load to engine speed is obtained.

 

#3 hole, 1600RPM load and 1775 no load.

#3 hole 1700RPM load and 1825 no load

#4 hole 1800 RPM load and 1975 no load

#4 hole 1900 RPM load and 2025 no load

#5 hole 2000 RPM load and 2175 no load

#5 hole 2100 RPM load and 2250 no load

#6 hole 2200 RPM load and 2350 no load

#6 hole 2300 RPM load and 2425 no load

#7 hole 2400 RPM load and 2550 no load

#8 hole 2500 RPM load and 2675 no load

#8 hole 2600 RPM load and 2750 no load

Now, here is where there is a line drawn between the above settings and the rest of the settings, everything above this line says for models TH and THD, everything below that line says the settings are for the modelsTHD only.

My Book does not cover the TJD models and so I use the settings that are on the specifications plate on the welder.

Now, below the line, for THD only.

#9 hole 2700 RPM load and 2875 no load

#9 hole 2800 RPM load and 2950 no load

#9 hole 2900 RPM load and 3025 no load

#10 hole 3000 RPM load and 3150 no load

#10 hole 3100 RPM load and 3225 no load

#11 hole 3200 RPM load and 3350 no load

#12 hole 3300 RPM load and 3450 no load

#12 hole 3400 RPM load and 3525 no load

#12 hole 3500 RPM load and 3600 no load

#12 hole 3600 RPM load and 3675 no load

Witch one has pistons going up and down at the same time?

The THD and TJD are rated at 16.8 hp @ 3600 rpm.      http://www.unofficia...llectors.dx.am/

 

One thing to check on them is the fins behind the shrouding. Ones used on balers and such would often be plugged with chaff and oil.

Nothing funny about it. I may nominate it for a tractor of the month! It's a beauty.

 

classic, even if that engine is bad, the parts are worth a lot of money. Carb, oil pump, magneto(?), fuel tank, they all are hard to get.
