I have worked with Wisconsin engines and have been around them all of my life. They are a good rugged, dependable, long life industrial quality engine. You won't go wrong with one of them in a trencher.

THey are very good engines. In averything from older skid steer loaders forklifts welders and pumps. you may beable to find a thing called a starterator its a generator and starter in one thats belt drive. my granfater had a Wiscansin on a log splitter one time that had a pull start and he put one on it works good eventhough the motor had its own magneto he used the extra power off the generator for keeping the batteries charged.

HELP PLEASE, I have a Bolens 1050 tractor with a 10 hp wisconsin horizontal shaft engine with the pointbox located on the same side and under the carburator. Any information on point gap, plug gap, and govenor setup/adjustment would be greatly appreciated.The engine has a combination starter/generator and will start, but has a high idle speed,and will not smooth out at high RPM. Other than that, it will tow a 600 lb lawn roller and likes to run under load.
