George and Helen Myers.

I finally got a chance to take the pictures of the brochure that you requested showing the tiller attachment.

I also sent another post showing the letter that Ottawa sent to the client indicated that the tiller was available on the two speed Buzz Master.

I have also sent another post showing the letter sent by Ottawa to the customer when the machine was ordered.

Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas and best wished for the New Year

Gary, that is the first one we have ever seen one with the sliding table attachment. Did you day that the serial number is 19591? I would think one would have to remove the other saw to use the table. You can send the info re: the serial number via email if you choose.

Thanks for posting the picture....Helen

I will try to send a pic of a letter and a pictur of the Tiller.

Wish me luck.

Here are the other two pictures. The letter is the quote from Ottawa indicating that the Tiller is available for $100.00 and can be used with the two speed machine.

Thanks Gary for the pictures. I have to take a closer look at some of the Buzzmaster Lit that we have.

The gent on the folded front of the left picture is Clifford Fritts. He is nearing 90. Every year I tape 48 hours of Western movies and send them to him. They are a little late this year because I had to buy another VCR which just arrived yesterday. We visit with him every fall when we go to Ottawa.

You did say your serial number is 19591, correct?

The serial number is correct.

Any idea what spark plug was used in the 1947 AEH 6hp used on the Buzz
Master. Someone used a thread inset and smaller thread plug in mine, I want to try to get an original.

Gary.

According to the Wisconsin Manual the Plug was Champion No. 8 or AC No. 85. 18mm .030" gap, torque 25 to 30 ft lbs. I think the Champion conversion number is D16. I didn't check what is in ours. The same engine, AEH, is in the logsaw. The tractor, single cylinder Wisconsin, was one of the AEN Engines, 8 1/2hp.

Thanks for the verification on the serial number.

We do not have a Buzzmaster brochure which shows the tiller, just something else for us to try to find.....Helen

Could you recheck the torque on that plug ?? Is it ft. pounds or in. pounds. Ft. pounds sounds a little tight for the aluminum head.

Also, being you have a Wisconsin manual, could you look for the correct plug for the AB engine ??

Thanks,

Jim

Jim[/QUOTE]Jim,

According to the 1974 AC Catalog the AB uses the same plug as the AEH & AEN along with many other Wisconsin Models.

I was quoting a Wisconsin manual(which did not include the AB) when referencing the torque. I agree that sounded high in foot pounds, especially after thinking about my first experience of using a torque wrench on a 7 1/2HP Evinrude head bolts which had an aluminum block. Thanks for helicoils!

The Wisconsin manual stated 25 to 30 foot pounds as I said in my earlier post.

The 1974 AC Plug catalogs states for this size and type of plug, a torque of 28 to 34 foot pounds for an aluminum head or 32 to 38 foot pounds for cast iron.

Also the newer AC number is C86(in the 1974 AC catalog).

I take no responsibility for what happens if you follow the above instructions!!!

We rarely ever torque plugs in small engines. Our torque is snuggemup plus an extra half turn.

Now you can chuckle! I thought, what does he mean aluminum head. I always keep a cow magnet in my car, I grabbed it an went to the engine shed, sure enough the heads on those Wisconsin are aluminum. George asked me what I was doing, when I told him he said he didn't know they had aluminum heads either. He hates working on Wisconsins!

Maybe someone else wants to add to this discussion or clarify what's been said?

Helen

Thanks for the info. I did have a good laugh at the magnet idea. That still seems a bit tight for aluminum.
