Yes, I couldn't believe it either. The 8hp wisconson is supposed to run just needs a gastank. Two of the rear tires look like new, they are Goodyear 23x850x12 2 ply.So far everything seems to be in working order. One of those deals you cant pass up. [
My 50 dollar find

Wow you stole that!
Looks like it started life as a Bolens 1053 and someone swapped a hood and fender on it from a 1050.

Cant hide anything from the good Dr. Most of it is from a 1053. I think the other owner said the 8hp wisconsin was from a 6 something. I know he took the 1053 and 1050 to make one. Gear box on the snowblower has been changed to one with a higher rpm. Just need to get a gas tank hooked up to see if it will run now.

It lives! After a little playing, pulling the plug and turning it over for a few minutes, the starter/gen quit grinding. Put the plug back in and a little gas in the carb she fired right up. Rigged up a temp gas tank and it even moves. First gear jumps out and clutch needs adjusted but have spare rearend and clutch assembly so a little tinkering and she should be back to life.
