thank you kent, it is a 1hp or a 1-3/4hp model, made in may of 1936, with a 6:1 gear reduction attached. But i have one problem. I had the head to make sure the piston was moving and no broken rod, but the one valve is stuck open. what can i do to fix it? or should i stick it on ebay for sale?

Mike, I have a Clinton engine with the reduction box on the side if that would be of any interest to your friend. It spins freely but I have not tried to start it yet.

I found a guy locally who will rebuild my motor for me, but he will also buy it so, im thinking i will sell it to him and then i wont have to worry about shipping the 130 pound object.

Kirk, What's the cost, including shipping?? I'll see him this weekend. It's for an old 2 wheeler, don't know exactly how old, but he wants to power it with old iron to bring it to the show this spring. I've had 2 Clintons over the years, one on an old Gorman Rupp pump and the other was a stand alone, they both ran good and I thought they were well built, but never heard they're reputation. What's your opinion??

I have no experience with them, this one was on a Garden Aide two wheeled walking tractor. In fact, if he wants to have the whole thing with the snow plow, have him email or PM me.....
