I'm not that familiar with this engine. When I look down the spark plug hole there is what seems to be some sort of of flat plate that moves up and down when you turn over the engine. It seem strange to me that it would be in front of the spark plug. The good thing is that it does have spark.

Looks good. I am liking that old Ford in the background too. My first truck was a 79 F-150, in-line 6, 3 on the tree and manual steering. Great old truck.

It sounds like you stole it for that price! Nice find.

 

The dash aside, it looks like it's in straight condition and it came with some desirable attachments on top of it. :thumbs:

 

Good deal and keep us posted on the progress as you get her up on running again.

Plate moves up or down, still laughing at that one........!  Guess you are kinda new to tractors and engines?  Piston, or a valve say seen in hole?   Those Parts are the grader blade for mid-mount that everyone here is saying is worth the price.  Not sure what the hardware with it in pix is, not familiar with Bolens to tell ya.

I'm not that new! I'm guessing it's for the valves. Just never seen anything like that. I have some homework to do. I have all the manual.

I got a chuckle on that one too. It is the intake valve if it is the same as the Wisconsin in my 1054.

I'm not Doc, but:

 

Your Wisconsin TR10-D was advertised as 10 hp.  ....It was used in the 1966 model 192-01 tractors and was equipped with magneto ignition.

 

The Wisconsin TRA-10D was also 10 hp, and was used in 1967-1969 model 192-02 tractors (these were also 1050's) equipped with battery ignition.

:ditto:

 

They advertised them as 10HP, but they were actually 8.25HP , Just a marketing scheme I think, same with the Bolens 1000 which used the same engine.

I just remembered that I have pictures of mine with the head off. This will give you a better idea of what you are seeing. This motor is a TRA10D, but I am pretty sure that they look the same under the head. The piston is at the top of the picture, the exhaust valve is on the lower left and the intake valve is on the lower right. The spark plug sits directly above the intake valve and what you are seeing is the valve opening and closing.

I believe the TR-10D's were up-rated for 1966 due to a change in governor spring, which was different than the governing spring used in 1965.

That makes sense the early PM142 and PM161 spring rated the engines up to 2900rpm , the PM200A which was common on most engines after 66' says 3600rpm
