I found this engine for sale and wanted to know if anybody knew anything about them.
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.

I think a good running Wisconsin of any size is worth $100. I save them from the scrap yard even if they are missing the carb or magneto, just as long as they turn over, and I pay $350 a ton for them, and cast iron blocks are heavy.

Looks to be either a TJD or THD. Either rated at a tad over 18HP, and they have every bit of it! Great engines, and $100 is a steal if in decent running shape. DO NOT tell the guy the HP or the price will go up!

I just noticed in the pictures there's a hand crank sitting on top of the head.

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 checked out the manuals on line and found out the the pistons go up and down together at the same time not like most inline twins where one piston is at the top the other at the bottom.
>Wisconsin engine manuals re-direction.
(TE, TF)


These cylinders fire 1 revolution or 360deg's apart, no wonder the one I saw running was so smooth, evenly spaced power pulses.

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!
