Default Wisconsin VE4D Engine

I recently purchased a Wisconsin ve4d engine and I'm just curious to know the age of it. I've read that they made them from 1940 to 1969. My engine has the Fairbanks Morse magneto and no starter which leads me to believe it's older. Serial number is 2023361. Thanks for any help

Jeff,
Your engine was built in December of 1952. The VE4D was built from 1940 until 1969. Your engine has a 3" bore, 3-1/4" stroke, with 91.9 cubic inch displacement. It is rated 21.5hp @ 2400rpm, which is this particular engines maximum governed speed. It is also rated 15hp @ 1600rpm, 17hp @ 1800rpm and 18.7hp @ 2000rpm. Parts for the VE4 are still readily available, it is Wisconsin's second smallest V4, and was very popular.

Chris

They're a pretty smooth runner. I have one on a log splitter and it just hums away at 1600 rpm. They're fun to play with and will run forever with minor care. They do like their fuel though.

I'm sure they do but not as much as I'll have fun tinkering with it! Thanks for the response!
