Default Wisconsin UA gaskets and Stromberg carb M-2

I am looking for a set of inspection and valve cover gaskets for a Wisconsin UA motor. Anybody know of a good source for old Wiconsin motor gaskets. I contacted Olsens in Wa and I would need to send all my parts in as templates and I am not really keen on doing that.

I am also looking Stromberg M-2 carb core or a rebuilt unit with a 1.25" bore.

i suggest you try using rtv for the inspection cover and valve cover i have used that stuff in the past and it works really good on my engines. It doesnt work well on places that rely on the gaskets to put a tolerance or to control the end play.

On the gaskets, can't you cut new ones from stock sheets??
I'm assuming you mean the two large inspection plates on the side of the block, and the OHV valve cover, neither of which should be subject to any real pressure, assuming the drain holes in the head etc are clear.
There's also gasketstogo.com, a sponsor here.
For the carb, there're places like thecarbshop.com and carbsonly.com, but they're often $$$$$$ heavy.
OOPS: are we talking water cooled here? I just realized I have no UA on my Wisconsin list, and was probably thinking of the AU, a water cooled 4cyl 43/4x51/2...

Bruce: I do have a Wisconsin UA water cooled on my list...it shows as a 4cyl 41/4 bore, but my UA listing has no stroke...
There's also a UAU, which I assume is a variation, which shows 6" stroke.
Would you verify if yours is the water cooled?? If air cooled, could you advise cyl's, bore and stroke???
Many thxx!!

Bud,

I picked up this older engine from a friend last Saturday......he didn't know what it was and just wanted it out of his way. From my phone conversation with him I thought he had an old Fairbanks Morse vertical hit/miss unit and I was really excited Well.....he was looking at the mag!!!!

I took it off his hands anyway because I felt that I should. It is an air cooled single that kinda looks like a Wisconsin but I'm not sure. Here is nameplate data:

WARDS GASOLENE ENGINE
Model spec. # WMC-AEH-22069
Catalog # 87-2941
Serial # 847899
6 HP - 2600

The mag is a FM type J

The carb is a Stromberg and shows these numbers on the circular brass tag:
L45B2 at the perimeter and 426020A near the center.

If anyone has interest in this engine they can have it for the price of shipping and a very small finders fee.

Bruce
