I was looking for something else online but came across a series of air cooled V-4s made by Wisconsin that I hadn’t heard of. I don’t know anything about the weight but it looks like the OHV versions put out 65hp at 2800 RPM, plus the company was owned by Continental. They also look to have been pretty common so I assume cheap too.

I don’t plan on using one on an airplane, but I wonder if anyone else has.

Most of those were put on balers, very heavy.
Had one on our farm, used it to make a snow sled. Didn't work very well.

I had kind of figured they’d be on the porky side but part of me hoped they were more or less an A65 pushed up into a vee. I couldn’t tell from pics of the engine just how portable they were meant to be.
