I recently got a Wisconsin 4 cylinder engine, and I was wondering if they are any good?

I never had any complaints. They can be pretty heavy depending on age/series, but dependable.

JUNK.
Send it to me, and I will "dispose" of it properly....











I hear they are good engines. Parts may be $$$ for some.

Had one of those v4 wisconsins, scrapped it unfortunately. I've seen them used on train rides in amusement parks before.

probably not a bad engine, granted the internals arent botched. i do agree with TBP. that engine IS rebuilt, by General Machinery co, done in August of 1973, overbored to .020.

I'm starting to look for parts to possibly build a mini semi truck with a flat bed, to haul my lawnmowers around.

Id find a 4 or 5 speed trans from a small truck/jeep/something to put behind it.
Could build an awesome tractor with that thing...

Should check for interchangeability with parts from the 4cyl military generator engines they have sitting around built by Wisconsin and a few other companies but might work depending on displacement and bore size I believe the hp rating is something like 20+ for the civi models.
