Well My dad brought his 1950 ME (Milwaukee Equipment ) front tine tiller over to my house so I could put an engine on it. That was yesterday. I love that little tiller as I used to use it all the time as a kid. So I just couldn't put an engine on it in the condition it was in, I forgot to take before pictures as I was not planning on doing anything but the engine at 1st. LOL. So here is were I am at as of 6pm today PICT1025.JPG PICT1026.JPG PICT1027.JPG PICT1033.JPG PICT1035.JPG PICT1034.JPG

Don't forget to restore that serial plate too! If you need help, let me know, and I'll walk you through it. Project looks very nice. He should be quite happy and surprised. Well done.

LOL The 67 Ford 100 I am doing for him too.I'm putting that briggs 5s on the tiller just so he can use it soon, but I am going to build that Clinton D 1101-C2C for it soon, it originally had a Clinton 700. The briggs is a 1950 also, I put a new condenser on it and it fired right up, runs like a champ and idles super slow.

Chris, that's a great looker now.

Thansk for the pictures! Only downside will be; he'll be afraid to get it dirty after you made it all pretty. :D

Oh I know, He said that about the Ariens snowblower too. I just want them not only look good for him, but to run good and to last another 60 years.

Most rebuild parts for the clinton 700 can be had at Napa for a good price, Carter carb parts are the same as Kohler, i don't usally do this but this fourm http://www.google.co...pbPCgKHu6hF3v7A is for Clinton engines, nice guys but a slow fourm, not as quick as GT Talk or Smokstak.

Those Briggs will always run but the flo-junk carbs alway leaks and has fits, very durable long lasting carbs.

I am a member on that forum LOL, and yes they are slow, I have bought parts from Charlie for the D 1101 already, he has a ton of Clinton stuff.

Sorry 1 more thing the 700 he had on it blew a hole in it and destroyed it self, was beyond rebuilding, so I will do the D 1101 unless I find another 1 in the mean time, thanks for all your help on everything Jesse! (hope I spelled it right)
