Wasn't sure where to post this, but I was at an auction yesterday (see craigslist/ebay/kijji finds thread Osco in this auction) and ended up with some cool stuff including an Ottawa engine that resembles (not exact) a Wisconsin AEN that has me curious.  The engine has a magneto and a Zenith carburetor that will need a complete rebuild, I think my two biggest questions are, were these built by Wisconsin and how hard are rebuild kits to get for Zenith carburetors.  Also got a Le Roi 2cyl power unit that I can't find much info on and a Delco Light Plant, any info would be helpful.  Sorry no pics right now, busy day today and the two engines are currently tarped do to rain forcasted.

Most likely an AEH engine. the Ottawas I've seen have an Ottawa tag fixed on the Wisc tag. the Wis is taken out of the tag and the Ottawa tag is fixed in its place. The log saw engine used a special base built into the saw dolly. the buzmaster used just a standard engine.

That era, I own the late 1940s Ottawa Buzz Master and similar Ottawa log saw. Both are Wisconsin powered.

Oh, now I get that username lol, yah mine is on a saw base (confirms an earlier thought) but my blade and I assume other parts are missing, just bought it for my engine collection.
