Default It came with the splitter

A wisconsin, the tag claims to be a AGN, 3 1/2 X 4
Seems to run good, needs a little carb work. Would it be considered terrible to go ahead and run this engine on a splitter? Or does it have some fantastic historical value? I think it looks to be capable (atleast it sounds like it) of around 12hp or so.

Thanks,
-Pat

Run it. They are plentiful. Neat engines, run great, parts are spendy but the things will last forever.

If you shut it off or stall it when it is hot it can be a real pain to restart. they are prone to vaporlock. To restart when vapor locked you furiosly crank it until you get mad enough to throw the crank, by the time you then find the crank it will be cooled down enough to re start. good luck and have fun with it. They make great spliter engines.

Thanks for the feedback. The engine is a keeper for sure. Started this morning on the second pull, can't beat that with a big stick.
Now to work on the rest of it. Thinking this beast could pull a 20 gpm pump single stage easily.

Default What RPM?

Okay, this has to do with picking out a pump to put on this engine. What appox RPM would this engine produce highest torque? Is it the same specs as a AGND, 3200 rpm?? OR would it be happier around 2400 or so. Just wondering...
Thanks,
