I have a VH4d that was on a swather, but it locked up. I am sure it needs a full rebuild. I would like to know if there is someone that could fix this engine for me that knows what they are doing with these engines.

I want to put the engine on a wood splitter.

I have done a few Wisconsin Overhauls. If you could find a running one it would be far cheaper as overhauling one takes alot of time. I am in SW MN of your interested

I bought a VH4 off a swather that is locked up.
Seems the guy I bought it from did not like to
keep oil in the engine or clean the schaff from
around the cylinders. Was the most neglected
engine I have ever seen. This engine has a broken
crankshaft. I bought it for the
starter,generator,flywheel, and air filter.
I just put together a VH4, Can't remember exactly
what it cost, Four pistons and rings and a set of
rod bearings, $500.00. Valve job on the cylinders
$100.00. Gasket set don't remember.
If you can find a VE or a VF crank start you can
modernize it with parts from your VH. Just a
suggestion.

Sadly, if it needs a "full rebuild", you will be far better off dollar-wise to send it to the "land of almost right" to be returned as trivets at Waldo-World and replace it with a new Kohler, Briggs or Honda V-twin OHV engine. They all have units in the 20 to 30 HP range, which should be MORE than adequate for a log splitter.

Once you price $$$ parts and figure in labor, you will realize that I am being serious.

Thanks guys for the advice. I will rebuild it on my own sometime in the future then. I want that engine on my splitter. At least parts aren't hard to find.

NAPA auto parts has gasket kits, valves,rings,
new feul pumps, carb kits. If its a later model
with insert con rod bearings..they may have them.
Wisconsin Motors is still in business, still making engines, most parts are still available.
there's about one distributor per state, prices,
however, are like parts are gold plated.
Parts and service manuals, and a distributor list
may be downloaded free at the official web site:

Sadly,the quality of all those new engines is poor compared to a 50 year old Wi.

My feelings exactly, Don't run the engine above the RPM range of the engine. Keep clean oil in the Wisconsin, clean oil in the air cleaner, and keep the mice nests out of the shrouding around the cylinders and those Wisconsin's will outlast the imports.
A lot of people are into cheap today and don't mind buying the same thing twice or three times and still having junk.

I'm in Western Wisconsin and I just picked up a running Wisconsin TF at an auction last weekend. I would be interested in getting it rebuilt. I don't think it needs a ton of work, but it has been altered a few times over the years. Like it to be back to original ... if that's possible.
