Hello Terry,
I do not see the larger "M" and "P" series engines. Did they come a bit later?

Hello Alan,

Yes, but exactly what year I do not know. The factory drawings I have for the PT & P are all dated early 1920's.

The "L" is also missing.

Best regards,

Terry

My donor rig that my Wisconsin "M" engine came from was reportedly either a 1914 or 1915. The radiator I have certainly appears 1914 or 1915.

While years stated in old parts catalogs are seldom completely reliable, years listed for Wisconsin engines in a 1917 Burd ring catalog, while spotty, are interesting...
An AI is listed for 1912/14 and 15, 4cyl. 43/4 bore, 3 rings for 1912, 4 for 1914/15....
An I shows for 1914-15, 6cyl 4" bore...
The L is listed for 1914 6cyl 5.100 bore...
The M and P re both listed for1913 and 1915, 6cyls 53/4 bore...
Both the I and L may've been available too late for the 1914 brochure, which would have to've had some gestation time...but it does seem curious about the M and P...

Looking through the factory drawings I have for the P & PT the earliest date is 1921.

This is interesting since by that time big T-heads were decidedly a thing of the past.

Hello Bud, Is it possible that you could scan the page that suggests that the "M" and "P" were listed in 1913 and 1915 and share with this discusion? I also then assume that the same "M" and "P" would have been a 1914 offering. The model probably was run, with some improvements into at least the mid 1920's (if not near 1930). The industrial and marine uses may have been what kept the model in production longer. My road engine Wisconsin "M" probably did not have many years in production before being replaced by the improved monobloc design.
