Maybe the engine came out of something like a Bush Hog or a Cub Cadet tractor that used a PTO clutch there?

I'ld say a clutch. Does that belt pulley mount to flywheel?  Was thinking that big knob in center maybe tightens up when you want the pulley to lock into engine??

Course, all this may be stuck now, with condition of rest of rig. Try oiling up some of that area and see if center turns, or arms wiggle or whatever.

I think LPBolens is correct this engine is not the original engine it may be a donor out of another piece of equipment or tractor. The person may have stripped off what was in the way of the hood and left the rest. I agree with glgrumpy and Kalel that it makes sense that it would be a clutch, my friends Cub Cadet has a front mounted clutch to drive the attachments.  

 

The ID plate is missing off the engine how would I determine the what size and series Wisconsin it is?

If the engine has a square points box on the side the carb goes on its likely a TR10D or TRA10D engine, in some freak instance where someone swapped carb manifolds it could be an S8D as well

Lmiller, that is the bracket for the starter generator, the drive belt goes around the big pulley on the flywheel

Brian I went out and took a picture of the side of the engine.

 

Here is what it looks like.

I would say TR10D or TRA10D

 

Looking at the throttle linkage assembly on the shroud I think its safe to say the motor did not come from a Bolens originally

Thanks Brian, do you know how long the crank shaft is supposed to be, I stuck my finger into the pulley and the shaft is a good ways in there. When I get ready to fix it up to get it running am I going to have to know which engine it is or is there some way to tell the difference?

 

As you can see there are parts missing that I will need to purchase for the Wisconsin.

The cranks were not very long originally on the Bolens, really only way to tell the difference between the two is looking at the piston and rod, that was really the only difference between the two motors

I am assuming I will not be able to tell what year the 1050 is because there is no ID tag on the tractor?

 

Did the 1050 come with different Wisconsin motors through the years of production?

 

When you say the piston and rod are different is it cosmetic or actual size difference?

 

Thanks again for your help!

 

Stephen
