I just found an engine the same as the one you have pictured....leastways looked dead on to what you have. it was stuck and missing a bunch of parts....al i got off of it right now was a mag, FM-j. after some amount of work, it shoots a good hot spark...yes, I found out the hard way. I think it would be neat to convert it into a hit n miss seeing as restoring it is not an option for me (not enough there and no value)

Dan,

Two cycle Power Products engines were used to power go carts, bin sweeps, drill fills, small water pumps etc. Some models were used in chain saws and vertical shaft models powered lawnmowers. There were probably other uses as well.

Power Products engines became part of Tecumseh around 1955.
Tecumseh kept making the same engines for a long time with new nametags.
They may still have parts available, ask at an older service/dealer.

Dan,

According to my info the two Wisconsin engines made with 3 5/8" bore and 4" stroke were the model AH made 1935 to 1941 and model AHH made 1941 to 1957. Model AH was rated at 8 HP @ 2200 RPM and model AHH was rated at 9.2 HP @ same RPM. I don't have a manual for model AH so don't know how it looks in comparison with model AHH. Your engine resembles the model AHH shown in my manual for AFH-AGH-AHH engines.

Part number for head gasket for model AHH was QD-476-2. I think your engine has a Zenith carburetor but not sure which model as a couple are mentioned in my manual.

Bill

Hello again, it was my day off and i was not plowing snow. so i figure i go out and wake this old girl up. that crank makes me aware of my knuckels. well i poured a little gas down the carb and the second crank she started to puff.no muffler, my neighbors was really happy iam sure. It does have a ZENITH CARB on it.The govener is not hooked up to the carb. iam going to have to find the right rod for it. plus the copper pipe from carb to the side of the block was disconected. going to have to replace .51 days to spring. this is going to be a good summer prodject.it seems to have good compression. oh yeah if you notice iam no good on a computer. feels like i just got rid of my 8 track player. Thanks guys for all the help. I promise to behave myself while iam on here. as of now this is my favorite website. dan the knuckle buster [[[[[[[[[[[[[

I don't know why Wisconsin engines aren't more collectable, I have a few my self. I have an AEN with a revere reduction gear box which probably weighs 250 pounds I also have a BKN I think it's off a Snapping Turtle Mower all I need is an Air Cleaner for it. I also have a Model ACN on a Jay tamper with a special carb made by the Jay Company. All of these engines have great original paint.
Although I am more of a Briggs engine fan, I do have some Clinton's, Continentals, a Reo, and a Nelson Brothers engine.
Dan looks like you have some neat stuff.

Post zenith carb

Hello, i got to work on it again today sunday. I cleaned out gastank, fuel line shutoff valve,And made up pipe line to manifold. Removed carb and got ready for soaking. Well heres that four letter word RAIN . the number on the zenith carb is B17 . it would be a lot easy to find gasket kit. I hate to have to make my own out of gasket paper. or find another carb. WELL i know this stuff works good soaking over night. Can some one tell me how my pictures are coming out? and how there LOADING i really appreciate it. Dan.

Zenith carbs supported by Kohler.
Aftermarket overhaul kit is Hygrade 1306 excluding float.
Depending on how bad the carb looks, I would suggest making your own gaskets before getting the kit. Learning how to overhaul carburetors is part of the old engine game.

Smile wisconsin AHH

I think your correct,plus its not the first time i rebuild a carb by makeing my own. before someone used that formagaskit stuff in a tube. when i took the carbarator apart it was all laying around in bottom of bowl . another thing is by the time i wait for the kit i can be done with it. iam not going to rush it . it will be there when i get home from work. its not going nowhere. the one thing is i got to finish my other storage shed i started. than i got a place to work on it when that wet stuff falls from the sky. Thanks for the good advice B wegher DAN

The old man down road that has own small engine shop, told me that the cleaner that i got in the picture is not a heavyduty cleaner. He told me to go to the dollar store and buy the heavyduty cleaner. well i know myself you got to listen most of the time to these old timers.

Default cleaning carbarator

The can of cleaner i got in the picture is no good. today i used my wifes easyoff oven cleaner, and it works real fast. more or less i took her up a knotch. it took that rock hard varnish off real quick. there still small deposites left. now iam going to let it soak in simple green over night. i got the simple green later on. the easyoff i sprayed on in off 3 times. but it broke that real thick hard varnish up. I onley get to work on it after work. my big problem is the weather. bu i got to get organised with my engine shop. does anybody else have this problem, and every thing stops you from doing it. money and time DAN
