Hi,

found this forum doing a little research.  I have an old wisconsin single cylinder engine kicking around that I was finally  going to put on Ebay for parts/repair.  It was originally "sold on tractor"  badged as a Ward's gasoline engine.  Does it have more value for someone trying to restore a walk behind or are these pretty common?

Can you take a better photo of the ID tag so we can see what model the engine is, I would be interested in it for one of my M/W tractors that I have.

the label is getting faded, here is the best view my camera will do.  It has spark but no compression, crank turns easily, I assume rod may be snapped?

Did you try putting your hand ovr the exhaust and the intake to make sure a valve wasn't stuck?

It is a Wisconsin ABN. Even if it is broken the parts are worth money. I've got first dibs on the gas tank!

Sorry, been away.  I tried covering intake or exhaust, no difference.  I could parts it out but hoping someone needs it complete.  

i'll put it in the classifieds.
