Default Wisconsin AENL

Welp, it's a start.

I had to disassemble it to get it on the truck.
The good news:
Engine and compressor shafts turn.
The bad news:
No spark

Identification will be a bit of a pain. "Thar be numberz on here somewheres"
Carb is a piece of cake. Fool delivery is a speciality 'round here.

Basic removal of mud wasps, goop, some rust, and the usual body werk :-)
I'm not going into looky here, shiny detail , with this one.

Thought I'd finally post something of interest here.

Identification of the engine at least is easy. Your engine is a Wisconsin model AENL. The compressor is either a Devilbiss or a Kellogg, it is hard to tell from that small picture. If it was a factory setup there should be a small air cylinder mounted next to the carburetor which auto-idles the engine when air is not being called for. The wico magneto on your engine is very common and easy to get parts for. They are very reliable when in good working order. Be sure to pull the engine off of the tank, remove the oil pan and clean out the decades of old oil and sludge in the engine. While the pan is off check that the oil pump is in good working order. Then fill with Rotella T1 SAE30 or equivalent heavy duty SAE 30 motor oil. The compressor will likely need a thinner oil like SAE20 or a mineral type oil. Some better pictures will help identify what you have.

Thanks Chris!

I'd already determined that the sludge-o-matic procedures were mandatory.
Why not check cardio as well ?

Didn't see the air cylinder , only the usual governor and manual throttle. I got it from the original user if not owner. I was told it was used for media blasting and was a turn it on and go until you were done deal.

Since the Mag was loose and falling out I'm sure it was out of time. That can be a trial by fire for the uninitiated. :-) I've had Mags hanging off Sportsters and big twins and dabbled in CH3NO2 . I'll be okay there.

I'd like to find the idle trip as well as an original metal fuel tank. I'm not going to fanatic about it however. I intend to use it for nearly the same purpose , large projects at high volume. Keep the 100% duty cycle off my shop air. I do the same with an AEAD 200LE I rebuilt. A few gallons of pump gas is far cheaper than kilowatt/Hrs from the grid.
