Question Wisconsin AEN Engine Manual

Hello, I'm new here.

I like to rebuild antique engines, especially Wisconsin Engines.

You can see my full collection at http://www.jimmyinc.com



So here's my question:

I just bought a Wisconsin AEN engine at an auction yesterday (pretty good condition, complete but no compression) that did not have a manual.

Does anyone know of a place that I could get a manual for free?

Wisconsin engines are great engines for a starter collection. I also have an AEN, it has a reverse reduction gear box, a real nice original, I have had it running and it does run will. Wisconsin engines are nice smooth running engines and make great log splitter and general work engines. I have some NOS parts I am thinking about getting rid of, anything special you need? (I don’t have any carbs or tanks anymore) I have piston, a couple rods and some other miscellaneous stuff.

I must agree with you. Since I'm only 14, and my knowlegde and funds are limited, I stick with the Wisconsins (and the occasional Bolens) for messing around.

I have 5 Wisconsin Engines;

2 AKN
1 BKN
1 ACND (sold)
1 AB
1 AEN

and then a Bolens Husky 1556.

All of the pictures of them are on my website; http://www.jimmyinc.com/gallery

And I might need some parts for the AEN, but I don't know what yet since I've only had it for a day.

Thanks,
James

Jimmy,
I checked out your site last night at work, that is a nice collection. I wish I started collecting when I was your age, I didnt start untill I was about 18.
I have a few bolens tractors my self, that I am restoring currently. one is 1926 with a Briggs PB, the other is a 1921 with a Briggs P.

Well, I just got the AEN runing. It started on the very first pull in over 10 years.

Jonathan Widelo-

Nice tractors you got there. I can't wait to see the final result!

JKWidener - Would you happen to have a similar manual for an AEH? If so, and you are willing to send it, I would greatly appreciate it. A 1947 Buzz Master that I recently picked up uses this engine. So far, I have had to rebuild the Wico X magneto, clean the oil pump, and make a base gasket for it. It runs fine now, but a manual is always a good idea. If you would be so kind, my address is gschilling(at)esilab(dot)com. Thank you, Greg

You can find the manuals for most Wisconsin Engines at http://www.wisconsinmotors.com/partc...engineswm.html

After JKWidener sent me a copy I went to the website and saw the manuals.

I uploaded that .pdf to FedEx Kinkos to have printed and bound, and it only cost me $13.15.

Here is a video of me starting the Wisconsin AEN Engine on the first pull, sorry that there is no sound, but I assure you that it is running.

Hello Jonathan,

Happened to see your post and being in need of Wisconsin info. , I'm hoping you might have a pdf for a AEN that is on a Little Red Devil generator.
I have used Wisconsin 1 , 2, and v4 cyl. engins but never really needed a manual until now. I am mainly interested in head bolt torque and tighting pattern. Also connecting rod torque and clearance. I would appreciate it very much if you had something that would help me get this one right. It is not so badly worn, just been setting up and exposed to the weather some.

You mentioned haveing a few nos parts, how about a connection rod ?
Thank you for any help that you have . Arthur edwards79@embarkmail.com The pic's are real good.

Original Wisconsin manuals are readily available on ebay. I have picked up some for $1 plus shipping ($3 to $5).

The manual for the AEN & AENL at Wisconsin llc is the full manual, but most of them are only parts list. But hey, free is free. Also note that they use one manual for the TE/TF/THD & TJD. The TJD is radically different so make sure what they have matches your engine.

Any decent NAPA or Carquest should be able to look these up & order for you, they are standard (not Wisconsin) parts. You might want to print that section of the manual from the link posted previously & take it with you.
