Default Wisconsin: twin cylinder dimensions

I have fallen deep in love with the sound of these twins idle. I would like to find one and retrofit into a garden tractor. Does anyone have rough dimensions of one- H, W, D. Nothing exact needed. Thanks in advance.

Go online and look at the manuals for them. Every dimension you want is printed.

Hmm. I've looked through several 80+ page manuals and don't see dimensions listed.

The two bangers are about 20" tall, 16" wide, and 22" long (crankshaft).

Hi,

Had one in a Bolens tractor when I was a kid. Not stock for sure. We were roto-tilling Illinois clay and the stock 10hp Wisconsin was weak. Dad made a pulley for the back that fit the taper and had several v-belt grooves. Worked well for 20 years. You could start it easily by throwing the flywheel with the mag.

I'm with the OP. I like the sound of them chugging away.

The tractor is long gone. I grabbed the engine and it is sitting back in the shop. I'm older now. I have no idea how I lifted that thing! They are like two engines as there are 2 heads on mine.

Good luck on your conversion. It does make the tractor a bit heavy in the steering.

Enjoy,

Keith

I put a Wisconsin twin on a 1978 Sears garden tractor. Bolted right on but since it was wider than the factory Tecumseh I had to make a jack-shaft to get the drive belt back inside the frame.
Oh, and I also had to modify the hood just a little.
BTW, the dimensions are HEAVY long, by HEAVY wide, by HEAVY tall.

I took a 1959 economy garden tractor with a 9hp Wisconsin and put a Wisconsin twin tjd in its place. The frame rails were extended about 5 inches and I had the clutch pressure plate bored out to fit the larger crank. I also cut about an inch off the total crank length. The original economy flywheel housing bolted right up to the tjd. The engine sounds great, and if the mag is timed right it starts almost instantly. This one is electric start.

The tjd is the best sounding of them all imo, and is the highest hp of all the twins. The engine is in an older Wisconsin power unit enclosure, which really makes it look excellent.

If you buy one of these engines be sure and clean the oil pan and oil pump out as they can sometimes stick and fail.

Nice work Early Iron. I am thinking about doing the same in a narrow frame Cub. Do the TJD electric starts have a charging system?

Early Iron, do you run a PTO with yours? I'd like to have a PTO just to keep whatever tractor I put this motor into useful. Would like to run a snow blower and mower deck. Would this PTO be something able to handle that chore?

That PTO would handle all the power the engine would put out.

I found this THD with this Rockford PTO. It's huge! Would be way to big for my tractor.

An economy tractor has the belt grooves right behind the engine. They can provide power or you can make a pulley for the front of the engine

Just thought I would note that the THD, TFD have a different firing order and sound than the TJD engines!.

I'd like to hold out for a TJD....but for the price tag on this THD and PTO- it's hard to pass up! At the least it'll work to fab up the frame.
