To identify a Wisconsin engine, first look for the identification plate. On older engines the plate is quite large and prominent. On newer engines, the plate is smaller and generally blue and white in color.

If the plate is missing, you can identify a Wisconsin engine by the part number of the cylinder head cast. Access this by removing the head and looking for the casting number on the underside of the head. All cylinder head numbers begin with "AB" followed by several digits. Note down the digits, go to the official Wisconsin Motors website to find a chart, and match the digits to see if the engine is a Wisconsin engine.

Alternatively, check the part number on the crankcase. The part number here begins with "BA" and is found on the crankcase above the PTO end of the crankshaft. Note down the digits that follow the letters "BA," go to the official Wisconsin Motors website to find a chart, and match the digits to see if the engine is a Wisconsin engine.
