Default 6 cylinder "T" head engine needed

I am looking for a "T" head engine, Wisconsin or other with a CID of 450 to 600. If you know of any engines like this, Wisconsin or other, drop me a note.

I would also consider other engines, Continental, Lycoming, Sterling, ETC "F or "L" head design.

Here is a disassembled 1936 dual ignition Waukesha 6RB176 flathead 5 x 5 3/4 out of a fire truck. Almost appears to be an aluminum block and pan?

Being apart isn't the worst as a thorough engine inspection can be done before the commitment to buy. I suspect that the owner found that parts were either very expensive or unobtainable. Be sure all the parts are there.... !!

Alan,

With the completion of the Locomobile nearly there and the speedster in the pipeline are you looking for yet another project? (LOL)

I think the big T-head bug has bitten you rather deep!

T.

How about an American La-France Junior V-12? Only 527 CID though!

Hello Andrew, I had not thought of a V-12, but hmmmm, maybe. I need to know the length from the front of the fan to the back of the cylinder blocks. I also need to know how much frame width it will take to set this engine into for a fit. How much does this junior 12 weigh? What is the condition and money wanted? The CID is just about what I want. If all else works, I may bite on it! Of course pictures are always good.

Hello Terry, Your comments above show a pretty good shadow. I do enjoy the aspects of "T" heads but also all old engines. I am, however, staying very focused on the current Locomobile (1) then the Wisconsin (2). The trouble is I sometimes get confused about which is which! :-)
