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?

They use a 25-30 amp under flywheel system, yes.

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!.
Nathan.

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.
