When I last worked on the tractor, I had just finished mounting the throttle and choke cables to the levers on the steering column.

265.jpg


The throttle cable is now hooked up to the carb linkage.
This is with the throttle closed.

266.jpg


And with the throttle about halfway open.

267.jpg


This engine was missing the air cleaner when I got it.
It did have the bracket mounted on the flywheel shroud that the air cleaner attaches too.

268.jpg


I've been searching for an original Wisconsin air cleaner to fit this engine but have not been able to find one.
I did however find this oil bath air cleaner on ebay just recently.
It's for Briggs & Stratton but it is very similar to the Wisconsin air cleaner.

269.jpg


The B&S air cleaner base had two mounting tabs on it.
I cut one of the tabs off and the other one lines up nicely with the mounting bracket on the engine.
The length of the B&S air tube was about an inch longer than it need to be so that was shortened also.
Here is the modified air cleaner base.

271.jpg


With the air cleaner base bolted on the engine, it sets the air cleaner about 4 inches out from the carb.

270.jpg


The outside diameter of the B&S air cleaner tube just happens to be the same diameter as the end of the carb.
I found a piece of pipe that fits tightly over the end of the carb.
The B&S air tube is made in two halves and they are crimped together on the top and the bottom of the tube.
I cut two notches in one end of the pipe so the end of the air tube can fit into it.

272.jpg


The air cleaner tube is then pushed into the end of the pipe.

273.jpg


The two pieces are brazed together and primed.

274.jpg


Here's how the air cleaner looks mounted on the engine.
This looks a lot like the air cleaners that were used on engines back in the 30's and 40's.

I ran across a nice item on ebay.
This is an old original 14x17 advertisement for a 30's Shaw Du-all walk behind garden tractor.
It list all the parts of the tractor and describes some of the farming operations that can be done with it.

I'm going to have copies made and put one in my display board for the tractor shows.
This will show everyone what this tractor was made from.

Very nice. I should've known better, but I was waiting for the rubber hose picture. :D

Nice job Ray.

I thought that was coming too!!

I recall a shaft oil seal being done with rubber hose.
(Uh oh, I smell a revisit LOL)

In all fairness to both of you guys, I did look thru my hose collection but couldn't find anything the right size.
Which is just as well because I think the steel tube looks more like something that would have come from the factory.

Ray, you never disappoint us. Alan and I would have gone out of our ways to get a hose that fit, but you took it the next step and asked yourself, "What else fits?" I am glad to know you, because now I will ask myself that question on my next project. Thanks.

For a few months I had been looking on ebay and craigslist for the correct air cleaner to fit this Wisconsin engine.
I never even saw one listed so I ended up buying that B&S air cleaner and made it fit.

After I posted the other day, I get a response from another member here known as "golfwrench" ( AKA: Bill ).
He has an air cleaner for this engine and he's only about an hours drive from me.

So Marie and I bop over to his place yesterday and sure enough, the air cleaner is exactly what I had been looking for.
Here it is mounted on the engine.

Sure, the other air cleaner looked just fine but I would much rather have the correct original air cleaner on this tractor.
I'll put the B&S air cleaner in my parts supply and use it on a future project.


There is one thing that Bill pointed out that I hadn't even thought about.
The Wisconsin engine has a copper tube that runs from the engine to the air cleaner tube for a crankcase breather.
The hole for this breather tube was blocked off on my engine.
You can see a piece of threaded rod sticking out the side of the block below the exhaust.

Posted Image


So along with the air cleaner, he gave me the crankcase breather tube and fittings.
Here is the crankcase breather tube mounted on the engine.

If you look back at photos of this engine, you will see that it was missing the identification plate on the flywheel cover.
The engine that he was junking out had a good ID plate so he fixed me up with that also.

Posted Image


One last item to top off this whole transaction ... Bill gave me this nice flywheel screen.
I don't need it for this tractor because it has the belt guard an it but I do need one for the engine that goes on the FMC bean Cutler.

Posted Image


All in all ... I'm very glad Bill let me know that he had these parts and I enjoyed doing business with him.
