ok so Im buying an old 14hp wisconsin TFD and I am simply going to strap it to a 1960's craftsman that a family member doesnt care for any more and am going to a simple pulley swap on a lockered hydro and add brakes. very simple yet deadly build I will post pics of the motor ASAP.

I edited your pic in for you.
Neat old beast. Can't wait to see what you do with it! Got a pic of the tractor?

Is it horizontal shaft? those wisconsin's are known for being great engines, i have one on a snapper push mower which the hole thing is about as heavy as a regular riding mower. Which is like the only complaint people have on wisconsin's, they weigh a ton

no pics of the tractor atm. it is still at my grandparents. it is a horizontal shaft craftsman with a hydro transaxle and a starter generator that still works. now I plan on keeping  the hydro and locking it. I also plan on pulley swaping it to make a 1:1 and add brakes. more updates should be coming but mainly of the th motor because that is the first thing ill be getting for the project and I plan on doing a major rebuild of the motor sometime later.

Is that a twin cylinder I see there?


We have an old 9hp Wisconsin, pretty near all cast iron. Heavy bugger...
Its got a big gear reduction unit on it, Id like to build some sort of beefy tractor thing using it.

*whistles

I wish I could spend that much for an engine... or anything for that matter lol.

Are you planning on "restoring" the engine any?
Recently there was a tractor show/fleamarket bout an hour away, I think I might have seen an engine like that. Pretty cool.

I am planning on doing a major overhaul and getting a set of rings because compression looks pretty low.the only reason I get the money to spend like this is because I budget it out and save a certain percentage of what I make to put towards these things. my total budget will probably be +-$800 or so

This will indeed be interesting. Several years ago, I had a VERY similar Wisconsin I2 engine. It was big and heavy, but very cool. Highlights included an actual mechanical distributor and fuel pump. Speaking of fuel pumps, I see that yours is missing off the engine. Is the seller including it? If not, you can probably fab a block-off plate and use other means to deliver the fuel.

That old Wisconsin of mine (might have been 16hp, too), I got rid of because of the size and weight. I hadn't made the leap from go karts to tractors and couldn't think of a use for it. D'oh!

I got rid of the engine quite some time ago. Give me some time to look around, I think I still have a bunch of carb parts- but I gotta find them.
