Id like to agree with you that it is 9.2hp, but it is not. I have very small amounts of literature on the Norton/Villiers, and Ronaldson Bros. & Tippett built Wisconsin engines. There are a few subtle differences in the castings, but the most noticeable difference is the magneto. I believe all of the R&T built engines had Lucas magneto's. Its hard to tell in your picture, but the magneto looks like a Fairbanks Morse. At 2000rpm your engine will produce 6.1hp.

Hello Chris.
Why would the Wisconsin site say rated power is 9.2 as per the link I posted?
At 2000 rpm the Wisconsin literature says 6.1hp.
At 3200rpm it says power is 9.2hp.

Cheers Scott

Scott, The tag on his engine says RPM 2000.
When you dig into the nitty gritty of the AEN versus AENL differences, you will find that the governor flyweights on the AENL are lighter for higher speed operation. If this engine in question was designed to run at 2000rpm, it would most likely have the heavier AEN flyweights in it. The higher speed AENL engines do not govern well at mid range speeds due to the lighter governor flyweights.

I read the tag as AENLD ? Yet it clearly states 2000 rpm.

Just yesterday I was looking at a nice, but way overpriced, 1800 rpm generator set, powered by a 1978 Wisconsin AENLD.

Hello Chris.
There seems to be 2 sets of governor weights. A set for below 2800 rpm and a set for running above 2800 rpm. Page 43 of the parts link I posted earlier.

Interesting. I wonder if a lot of these Wisconsins were for use where a set speed was needed like gen sets, cement mixers, certain types of pumps and the like?
Interesting
Cheers Scott
