This engine belongs to a buddy and he has the blower housing somewhere. He says it says Wisconsin on it. Its a new one on me. It has a cast iron jug while the crankcase is aluminum. It came from a stationary piece of equipment. Anybody know anything about this one ? When they were built ? HP ? C.I ? Edit: Sorry if I put this in the wrong spot. I didn't see a engine specific area.

That is a new one on me. Crosley cars had aluminum crankcases and castiron cylinders but I don't remember any small engines that way. It has a european look, to me. Good Luck, Rick

Some of the older Kohler opposed twins are that way. The magnum twins anyway.

Sorry Jim, I have never seen anything that looks like that. Maybe it's a new style Briggs??

The crankcase design looks like a K series Kohler (the PTO side with the 4 bolt holes) but the aluminum seems off kilter..  

 

Tecumseh would be my guess..

I'm reasonably sure it's not a Briggs Kohler,or Tecky. I just don't what it is. Looks like a 1 1/8th crank so its a heavy duty and notice the way the spark plug sits in the head. Hoping my buddy comes up with the blower tin. If he finds it I'm hoping it will have some identifying tags.

I spent a while in Google-ville scanning old pictures and now I see pop-up ads about engine parts?!?!?!  

You'd think somebody would recognize that oddball CC breather..  Never seen one like it..

Here's what the blower housing looks like (ignore the Honda label)  it's a EY-25 and on a generator.  I can't get spark and coils are expensive.

Thanks sharkman. Do you have any specs on it ? What is the hp rating ?

Should be a tag on the Blower housing or the cooling shroud on the back side of the Jug but looks like someone painted over it.

 

 

Robin EY-20-3 is 5hp

Robin EY-28 is 7.5hp @ 4000 rpm

 

Here's a parts manual for the EY-28.

Here's the list of other engines.

Yours looks a bit bigger than the EY28.Maybe it's just the Pics.Thought it might of been an EH but they are OHV.

 

Ouch Robin/Subaru 2347012421 IGNITION COIL $141.29
