Same as yesterday, drizzle in the morning. Less than 1/2 the usual crowd. I did pick up some good deals. Here are the picks: SD531463.JPG SD531464.JPG SD531465.JPG SD531466.JPG SD531467.JPG SD531468.JPG SD531469.JPG SD531470.JPG SD531471.JPG SD531472.JPG SD531473.JPG SD531474.JPG SD531475.JPG SD531476.JPG SD531477.JPG SD531478.JPG SD531479.JPG SD531480.JPG

The last pic is some of the stuff that I bought. The lights were $5 each and the bulb $2. The ridge reamer was $1 as was the dovetail saw, tubing bender, electrical kit, and the allen wrench set. The bag of 6 Cub Cadet belts was $2. Prices on technical tools has tanked. A ring compressor was $3 but I didn't need it. Dealers that I talked too said that very little is selling. I see selling prices dropping because fewer people want to do their own work. Good Luck, Rick

Looks like a fair amount of stuff there, Rick. I would have been all over that blue Wisconsin engine sitting on the trailer with the Gravely.

Ed has been trying to sell that for over a year. We don't know what model it is nor  do I know if it is complete. I think he is asking $50 for it. Ed made the WH and JD narrow fronts in earlier pics. Good Luck, Rick

Ed did a nice job on the narrow front tractors, Rick! That Wisconsin is or is similar to an AEH, and I would be interested in it even if it needs a rebuild. There will be a part number on the engine block, engine base, cylinder jug, and carburetor. There will be a round tag on the carburetor with the part number on it. It will either be a Stromberg or a Zenith if it has the right numbers on it. If Ed can get these numbers off of the engine, I can identify it.

We looked it over a year ago and couldn't find anything. I told him if he dropped the price far enough, I'd let it join the dozen other Wisconsins in my basement awaiting overhaul. We both have too much stuff in our basements. Thanks for the model identification. I'll download the manual and add it to the list of engines that I'm looking for parts. I don't think that I have a use for it but I could not stand to see it scrapped. I'll let you know if I get it. Good Luck, Rick   

 

Would the magneto from it fit my ABM?

Sounds good Rick. Here is a Wisconsin AEH that I'm rebuilding for a late model A Gibson tractor. Here is a pic of the part number on the jug and this number is visible on the PTO side of the engine. If it is an AEH, it would be good to have around. This AEH that I'm rebuilding has seen very little use. The problem is that someone robbed the good tins off of it and replaced them with beat up repaired ones.

Do you mean ABN or AEN regarding the magneto, Rick? If so, the AEH magneto will not work on either of those engines. I'm sure that I have magnetos for both the ABN and AEN if you need a good one.

I did a quick search and see that your ABM is a marine engine. A magneto from an AB or AKN engine will work. Here's a list of Fairbanks Morse magnetos for wisconsin engines.

Lots of goodies there. That green 2 banger is very cool, any info Rick? Nice pair of headlights on Ed's table. Those white 408 Gravelys have a loyal following. Some older Tonkas on the table all the way back. Lots of tool boxes. Always got to look inside them. Bummer that it rained :(

 

Thanks for sharing :thumbs:

The green two banger was off of a JD harvester. It was around $250. One of the guys talking to him said that it was the same as on a JD "L" tractor.  Good Luck, Rick

The John Deere motor is probably a LUC, so it is the same engine as that in a L. It was used as a power unit on a couple of John Deere pieces.

Sorry, its an ABN. I have an AB from my Bolens Gardener and the ABN is from a Wards/Simplicity walkbehind. Here are pics:  SD531481.JPG SD531482.JPG SD531483.JPG Sorry about the focus, sometimes the autofocus just doesn't work.

 

I've got gasket sets for them. The guy that gave me the gardener said that the magneto was shot. I will have to take it apart and see. Good Luck, Rick

Ah, ok Rick. An AB or AKN mag will work. I'm sure that I have a spare if you run into trouble with yours. Most just need a good cleaning from my experience with them.
