I picked these up last weekend. Gona put the kohler up on the shelf incase I need one for a project. The lauson is interesting. Its gear reduced and has a unusually long output shaft. Any ideas of what it may have been used on. (I love the original muffler).  Then i got two wisconsins.  An ab that maybe a parts engine. And then the ak. It puzzles me a little. Has a carb and mag combination I haven't seen before. Its a tillotson carb and wico mag. Its a 1945 according to the serial number. This is one of the earliest wisconsins i have. Would that have something to do with the odd carb and mag?

Yes. Not odd, many of the early Mil-spec Winnies had Tilly carbs, not many survived.

 

The MSE had modified Tilly MD carbs.

Ok. That makes more sense now. Never thought of it being made during or close to the end of the war.
