Wisconsin Engine Experts Stock Hard-To-Find Parts
EngineMasters is one of the few businesses that carries a good supply of Wisconsin parts like sleeves, pistons, bearings, gasket sets and carburetors. “Most people we sell to have older engines on industrial equipment like concrete saws, stump grinders, skidsteers, concrete screeds or heavy-duty air compressors,” Bobek says. The company ships parts all over the U.S. on a daily basis and some even into Canada.
“The internet has made it easier to work with people from just about anywhere and get them exactly what they need,” says Jeff. He’s quick to point out that customers need to know the engine model number, the spec number and the serial number before ordering. Numbers from the distributor and magneto are needed to order tune up parts like the cap rotor and points.
Bobek says their business will also re-build older model Wisconsin engines or other engines that are still in use. “We’re usually working on re-building 3 or 4 old Wisconsin engines a month,” Jeff says. “A person could replace the engine with a different one, but that’s not as easy as it seems and a newer engine can be fairly expensive. We can overhaul them generally for about half the price of a new one.”
Bobek says their rebuilding service includes engine disassembly, parts inspection and cleaning. All critical components are checked to make sure they’re within factory specifications. Crankshafts not within spec are re-ground to accept undersize bearings. Cylinders are honed and bored to the next size if necessary. Valves and seats are ground and then the old engine is re-assembled and painted.
During 30-plus years of business the company has built a strong reputation for doing great work on more than 20 brands of industrial engines.
