Wisconsin Engine

Tue Sep 25, 2012 4:55 pm

A friend gave me this engine. Pics show some things missing, but I do have everything for it except a muffler. I believe with some cleaning ill be able to get it running. Are any of you familiar with this engine? I believe it was used on a hay baler. It's a model THD. Two cylinders sized 3.25 x 3.25. RPM is not legible. Any ideas other than a baler on what would be a good use for it?

Sorry, I can't help any on use, anywhere you need a small horizontal shaft engine I guess. What gave you the impression this was used on a baler? Who was the manfacturer? I know Case used Wisconsin engines on some early balers but they were V-4's. Vern

I believe they were used on ih 47 and jd 24t and most likely on others. The color on my engine is very similar to the early Case color. However, I cannot definitely say it is

One of the boys in our 4H Club repowered a Bolens tube frame tractor with a Wisconsin THD engine and won the pull at this years fair.

BigBill that's very interesting. Could you send me pics of your welder? I'd love to have mine powering a welder. My email is twm1963@yahoo.com if that's easier for you. Thanks!

Bill:

Thanks for reminding me... I couldn't remember if it was a Lincoln or a Hobart -- but it is a Hobart welder. Big one .. :shock:

Hobart used both TJD and THD Wisconsin engines for some of their 200 amp range welders. I have two of them. Later welders in that range used Briggs single cylinder engines.

Seem to be tough engines. Parts are hard to find and expensive.
