Your engine was made in January 1942 per Wisconsin:

Hard to say what it was used for - they were put on just about anything and everything in their day. From tractors to cement mixers. One of my AEH's was clearly setup to drive some sort of engine-mounted pump, clutch, or gearbox due to the short length of shaft protruding from the PTO side of the engine.

I've come to really like Wisconsin engines. They were built like tanks with roller-bearing supported cranks and a lot of extra iron when you take a look at the horsepower rating and compare to a modern day engine of the same horsepower.

thanks much,
Ben in Alabama
