Well maybe I'm way off track here.... BUT... If thats the sawmill and engine I'm thinking of it could be the same engine as was in the Rumely 6 Tractor... And would be made from about 1929 untill sometime in the late 30's. Do you know where the mill and engine came from...???

All I've got at my fingertips is the B&S: 35/8 x 41/2...but it seems the XAH popped up on something fairly recent (60/70s?) which was surprising as it's fairly old. Believe truck listings often show XA and XAH together so its possible the H could mean high output (just a guess). There's also an XAHU, same B&S, but have no idea what the "U" designates, and don't recall seeing it anywhere. Will check some listings tomorrow, see if I can recall where it seemed so out-of-time.

I recalled this AM part of why that engine sounded familiar: there's an Eric L who has an XAH23A in one of the International A's or AW's; his last post I know of (1-3-07) is on page 18 of the Classic truck forum link on ytmag.com (it somes up yesterdays pickups.com; I think you can go direct). There was another man who had a power unit that looked like it could be an XA or XAH; I think he was on agriculture.com in the last year or so; don't know if he ever ID'd his or not, but Eric can probably fill you in some, and I'll see if I can find that seemingly relatively modern XAH listing that seemed so out-of-time. Good luck.

The XAH was popular as an irrigation engine and in generators in the 30's and 40's. The first 25 allis chalmers wc's used them too. There are at least 2 examples left. I know a fellow who has a nos head and head gasket for one.

Well that must be a different one than the one I was thinking about that sold a mile or two up the road last fall. It was a basket case mill and it looked to me that the guy that bought it would never get it running. This was a Large Ftathead 6 cylinder.... and was a Factory power unit...

The mill and motor came from an auction in Wausau, Wi. It is a 3 5/8 x 4 1/2.
It has a Rockford Pto model GRA-589 on it.
Anyone know if I can get the specs for it online?

Try some of the people at oldihc.com; IH used the XA and/or XAH in;
31-34 A1,A2;
30-31 AL3
28-32/33 AW1,AW2,AW182;
31-34 B2;
34-37 C10,C20,C250;
32-33 SD-X-431;
30-33 Spec Del 3/4Ton
The XA also shows in McC-Drg #8 combine 1926-30 and the IH #8 combine 1926-35 (same combine??) and in a few Fageols, but haven't found that later listing (if there really was one).
There's an oddity about the X series: X,XA,XAH,XAHU are all 4cyl's...but XK and XL are 6's. Good luck.

Sheesh:...I gotta remember to do these things the easy way: finally Googled Wauk XAH. Looks like lots of parts available, there's a listing that it was used in the Fairmont A7-A railcar 48-53, a discussion of the differences between the XA and the XAH in an oldihc.com posting, and one of my own postings-in Olivergirls 3-17 post on the Antique Auto and Truck Engine forum-(Help Identify Waukesha Engine) saying I found an XAH listing 48-54...as listed in a Dayco fan belt catalog.
