I am wondering if the distributor is an add on replacement for an original magnito set up.

Let me know what you learn. I am trying to attach an image of another wisc in line that was restored.

Ok, I just picked up a AC4 that was half buried in the dirt. Anyway, I want to pull the plugs, but the push rod tubes won't let me put a socket on the plugs. What's the trick to getting those guys out?

There is a special socket - one that has the full sized head to fit the plug and a small body to fit between the shields. A plumbers faucet socket set might work, or try a good mower shop

You can probably use a crowfoot to get the sparkplugs out. Wisconsin called for a DF-45-A sparkplug wrench on the inline 4 cylinder engines. No telling what that tool actually looked like. The correct original sparkplug for your AC-4 engine is a Champion #84.

Buy cheap sockets and turn them down in the lathe. They are so thin when they fit, they seem to split easy. I've never tried to turn down an impact socket. Wonder if the metal is any tougher when it's hair thin? I have no idea what they were thinking when they designed that. Andrew mentioned a special socket but I've never seen one. It would be neat to see one if anyone has a pic.
