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.

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.

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.
