Default Difference between Wisconsin BKN & AENL

Good morning;
What's the difference between the BKN or AKN, and the AENL?

I'm restoring some Baird Beaver Tractors which used AKN's & BKN's and there is a AENL in need of repair available locally.

It looks about the same. Are any of the parts interchangeable?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

They are two completely different engines. The AENL is about 50% larger than the AKN or BKN.

An ACN will look identical to the BKN but slightly less hp (about the same as the AKN). An ABN is the twin of the AKN but less hp still (4.2 or so). The AENL is bigger & carb, etc. is on the other side. All of these are very common, I would keep looking for what you want.

Thanks.
I'm ashamed to admit that looking at it, it escaped my attention that the carb and exhaust are on the opposite side. Might buy it and rebuild it anyway. Would be good for an old tractor with a blown motor
