A 1939 'Wisconsin' Engine.... Followed with another video of a rescued Fairbanks-Norse. Enjoy!
I will own one of those someday...
It's music to my ears.
I have a 1917 Buckeye 1-1/2 horse hit and miss engine, a 1926 McCormick-Deering 1-1/2 horse throttle governed engine, 2 AEN Wisconsin engines, two open valve Briggs engines, and several others not worth mentioning. I still take them to an occasional show and enjoy running them. I have had the McCormick-Deering engine for 50 years. It was my first.
Thanks, Marv, for posting this. That sure makes a one of a kind engine. I couldn't figure it out at first because Wisconsin never made an open flywheel engine that I know of.
That big Reid to the left, they make noise. Kaa Fwap! Kaa Fwap! Kaa Fwap!
A buddy set up a Delco lighting plant engine with a big flywheel and a different carb. It ran successfully.
The '20 Fairbanks horse and a half I caretake blows perfect smoke rings when running hot on Diesel fuel or kero.
Tump, tump, tump, tump. :-)
I put a folded red shop-rag on the hopper to keep it warm/hot.
Spark ignition running Diesel oil thru a simple suction carburetor if anyone that doesn't know and wonders. :-)
