Fellow says it's about 12hp???
Is it worth $100. ?
About 1+ 1/2yrs ago at the Barrie swap meet I saw another one, quiet, smooth and steady running engine, it looks similar.

My TJD has electric start, but these engines were also common with hand crank. Used as power for many things, including square hay balers. The one on the welder more than likely has electric start, but done through the welder armature. The generator windings have a start function as well as make power.
I just noticed in the pictures there's a hand crank sitting on top of the head.

>Wisconsin engine manuals re-direction.
These cylinders fire 1 revolution or 360deg's apart, no wonder the one I saw running was so smooth, evenly spaced power pulses.

except for the TJD which has the offset crank
Yep, that's my model, and I love it! Kinda like the uneven pulsing. When I can get things just right at a slow idle, it sounds like a johnny-popper!
