Ok, here is the scenario. A few years ago I saved a few Wisconsins from the scrap yard. The better condition AH has a Rockford clutch and was rated at 8.0 hp @ 2200 RPM. It is complete minus the carburetor, which I planned to rob off the later AGND Wisconsin I had saved. I have a project I wanted to do and figured I better pull the carb and clean it. Upon inspection the carb is dismal... I don't have faith it will ever tear completely down even. So my question is as follows: carburetors are for the most part carburetors, and can I possibly use an updraft carburetor from an 8-10 hp Briggs engine and have a chance of the engine running? Has anyone tried this?

IDK, but I believe the governor must be capable of being hooked up. Also, are the throttle plates of similar size?

The original one for the AH would have probably been a cast iron Stromberg similar to what an AEH used. If it was early enough it could have been a UR 3/4.
