Default wisconsin industrial engine

I have a vh4d engine that has some chipped teeth after being badly flooded and backfiring numerous times. I have access to a vg4d industrial engine but the motor is froze. I know the block and other parts are different but are the gears the same? I can't find any part cross references.Thank you.

Just download the parts manuals for both and compare the numbers.

*Some ran a hydraulic pump off the timing gears and there had a more beefy gear train.

Speaking as someone who has owned both of these engines, I'd consider it highly unlikely that any internal parts would interchange between these two. The VG is a larger engine physically than the VH so I would expect that the internal parts are proportionally larger as well. I like Old Stuff has it right, check the manuals to be sure, but I am not optimistic. I have a couple of VH parts engines, or the remains of two. What parts exactly do you need? My engines came to me in really awful condition so there's not much left that is usable, but I would be happy to check for you .

My engine is out of a bobcat skidsteer. I have some knowledge of the 2 engines so I am not loioking for internal parts.The gears are in a case between the flywheel and the block. The crank is tapered on both ends of an industrial engine so it will accept the tapered pulley assembly. The gears are hardened because of the added stress of the hydralic pump running off the side of the distributor. A wisconsin agricultral engine has the power end of the crank as a straight shaft with a keyway cut into it. The gears on this motor are not hardened and will not last. I have one of each type of engine.The timing gears are completly different in thickness and shaft diameter. See what you have Thank you

If your Bobcat is the same as mine, the VG will not fit in. My VH just fits in by about a 1/4" clearance. I think the cranks are a different size also.

2bob,

My engines came with a Vermeer stump grinder. These were belt drive machines with flywheel alternators so the only thing running off the gear train is the camshaft, the governor, the distributor and if memory serves, the oil pump. I'm sure these would not be special gears. Good luck, I hope you find what you need.

Seems like a similar question was asked in the spring or summer. May not have been. I think they rebuilt the gear if I recall correctly. Maybe a search of the site would help?

I will have to look around to see if someone in the area can repair hardened gears in case I can't find some. I supposed a machine shop would be my first place to look. Thank you.

Look up the correct parts and just buy them. Most likely they are available through Wisconsin. Don't screw around trying to have them made.

I didn't say that I wouldn't buy new gears. I was just looking at options.
