Usually, I just post things that I think will be interesting to other people on here. This one tempted me. I bought it because it seems to be NOS with only the air cleaner messed up.

I have a 12hp Wisconsin engine for sale. This engine is new never run I'm asking $275 or best offer.
 
 
He and his wife were very nice. He has a collection of Bolens GTs that he hopes to get running. We seem to have alot incommon. I expect to talk to him again. Good Luck, Rick

Looks like it has electronic ignition.  Module box on the outside above the flywheel.

TRA-12D That would be a really good one to put in a Bolens.Something like a 1254 or a 1256.Bolt on a starter genny and your good to go.

 

Very good price to.

That was a really good deal on an NOS Wisconsin engine. Rebuild parts for any Wisconsin seem to be through the roof.

That was why I went for it. I hope that it can replace an S12D.

S12D is physically Alot larger engine.It's like a wide base Kohler K series K301 12hp VS a Tecumseh HH120.

 

S12D has a removable oil sump much like the K series Kohlers or the huge Cast Iron Briggs engines.TRA-12D does not have a removable oil sump much like a 10 or 12hp Tecumseh HH100/HH120 or the aluminum block briggs 8-11hp engines.

 

 

Crank will be a couple inches closer to the bottom of the block and the mounting holes are about 4 inches narrower length wise and about 1 1/2 inches narrower width wise.

 

Was going to put a 12hp K301 Kohler on my 1254 when I found it to be blown up and not the original engine in it anyway,but there HUGE compared to the smaller TRA-10 TRA-10D and TRA-12D.

Great score! I be willing to bet money that thing would being double if not triple that on FeePay.

Sure will look good once installed, and will definitely outlast any of us in this lifetime;)

I have a 1968 Bolens 1050. Would it fit on that? Or my H14?

The TRA-12D will fit with no issues.  ......May need to change key switch if you stay with the solid-state ignition.

Yep will fit either the 1050 or the H14.

 

Would be easier to put in the 1050 though since they were originally equipped with Delco starter generator,Delco regulator and a Wisconsin engine.

 

Still would need to do some wiring.Or just hook a simple toggle switch to the kill wire and keep the key switch for starting and charging circuit.

 

H14 would of had a HH140 OHV Tecumseh with stator charging system,ring gear starter and solid state regulator.So you would need to rewire everything from the key switch down.

 

 

Unless you are just going to pull start it and not worry about electric start and charging system.Then all you will need is a toggle switch hooked to the kill wire on the TRA-12D.

 

What ever you do do NOT hook power to the kill wire.It will instantly fry that little ignition box on the blower housing and possible the magneto.
