VF4 is a standard engine. VF4D is a "Heavy Duty"
engine, as designated when manufactured, and
has Stellite valves, and hardened valve seats.
The "D" version is better for todays unleaded gas
Wisconsins are notorious for valves getting
stuck if they've been sitting around. Before
purchase, pull the plugs, shine a flashlight
down the plug holes, and make sure you can see
the valves opening and closeing when turning the engine over.Get a Wisconsin
owners and parts manual.
there are a hundred listed on e-bay,search under "Wisconsin Engine Parts". The manual says to pull
plugs and squirt oil down valve stems, before
storeing. If your engine has a magneto, parts,by
magneto model number, are redily available from
This, Y/T website, or "Branson Magneto", at www.
branson Carb kits and gaskets
are available from NAPA auto parts. Wisconsin
motors are still in business, making engines, and
parts are still available from them, through the
distributors, but priced as if they are gold.
