Very cool pieces. Are they all runners now or at least "they ran when we parked them"?

Kenny, those orange engines have me stumped.  They are not Clinton, they are not Power Products.  That three bolt bearing plate on the first one has me to think it might be a McCulloch, but I don't know those well enough to say.  You might try pulling the carburetor number (for the Tillotson equipped model with the Purolator silo air filter) and try to cross that.

The red one (494) is probably very close to original.  I'd like to know why the decal is upside down?  That old rubber pull handle and muffler are not original, though.  Clinton had three different time periods: "Clinton, Michigan", "Classic" and "post-1962."  The post 1962 engines were the 400 four cycles and 500 two cycles.  The ignition system for the later models was standardized.  

The green one is indeed a Clinton.  It looks like a 700 or an 800, early style before they started using the "swirl" engine head like your 494.  Look on the side of the shroud and see if you have two rivet holes for the arrow head badge.  That would mean you have a Clinton, Michigan, model.  Either way, that air filter back is not original most likely.  

The next one looks like a Briggs N... I can't read the tag, though.  Very common engine, very nice smooth engine.

The red 900 is very nice and complete.  The 494 replaced the 900.  You can't really date Clintons accurately but you can guess.  That one has a full metal oil bath air cleaner.  That's much better than the Saf-T-Vue clear plastic bowl that is always broken.

A Clinton 3100 was one of the later aluminum old style models. This is where Briggs sued Clinton for having "patent infringement" on aluminum motors.  I might have a blower shroud for it, or you might decide to part it out.  I like the aluminum series,

The first Briggs 5S is missing the fuel tank and carburetor, but looks in decent shape.  It is hard to find a 5S with a kick start.  

That Clinton 404 in teal green is very nice looking.  I doubt if that is the original stamping for the serial number tag.  I've seen

The Briggs 5S is a nice motor. That's the way they're supposed to look.

That second to last engine is a red Clinton with an original muffler or close to.  I like that style.  NOS mufflers are hard to find, so don't loose that one!!  I don't understand the fuel line routing, though, since it should go behind the shroud.  That probably wasn't originally a copper line engine or a Carter equipped engine.  I would guess that is a post-1962 400 series four cycle just because of the air cleaner style and muffler style.  The round gas tank on that series (900) is unusual, too.  

The final engine is probably a Lauson since it has a Tillotson and Lauson style air cleaner, even though the engine head smacks slightly of a Kohler.  

Ben W.

Ben it looks as if the orange ones may be Jacobsen's talked to a guy this evening and he told that what he thought they are. Looking at some pics it looks like they are Jacobsen unless I find something closer
