Hi, I just recently picked up a WD2-1000 that's seized. I am in the process of unseizing it but I'm going to need to get all new gaskets. Can anyone tell me what the best place to find parts for this engine is?

Thanks in advance,

Unfortunately parts are NLA including gaskets, extensive internet searches, go to part guys, and several old dealers netted zilch, sorry. If LP Bolens doesn't see this post you can PM him , I believe he put a new crank in one awhile ago, maybe he sourced some gaskets. Good luck with your endeavor.

As wrenchingonit said just about all parts are NLA for this series, the only thing I carry any more are the air filters, everything else has been discontinued for years and most sources are dried right up.

You can buy gasket material in sheets.  Plumb make a nice little gasket hammer that will mark the edges and holes real nice.  Hole punch set and good scissors and your back in business.  Might get by by re-using the head gasket if not destroyed.  Good luck.

I made a head gasket for a Korean diesel from copper shim stock. Worked fine but takes very careful torque procedure. Don

  secondtry is rite use a soft copper sheeting for your head gaskets or anything that may get hot, shim stock works ok but is a bit harder than I like.  just be carefull about the thickness, you can change the compression ratio pretty quickly that way.

Welcome to GTT. Try fleamarkets and Epay. Two years ago at a Tractor Swap Meet there was a guy who cleanned out the back of the family barn. There were boxes of NOS Wisconsin engine parts. Someone ahead of me grabbed most as I walked up. Try your local NAPA and any old dealers that are around. You never know what they have stored away. Good Luck, Rick

I have a complete wd2-1000 that was running when put away in my garage 15years ago.  Was saving it for a project but never got around to it.  I can't see me using it anytime in the near future so I could sell it whole if anyone wanted it?  Justin
