I just started restoring this engine, but do not know the
manufacturer and model. There is a tag on the front of the engine,
which reads “Wettlaufer Bros. Limited, Toronto Ont., Can.,
Manufacturers of concrete machinery.” There is a number on top of
the water tank, 686958. I know that I may have answered part of my
question but am not sure.

These engines have a compression release, and I think I need new
rings and to rebuild the head because when I turn the flywheels I
end up having more resistance on my Maytag Model 92 engine than
this. Any information on restoring this engine would be very much
appreciated. Thank you. Andrew Wrobel, 8725 Canal, Sterling
