The Clinton looks like the one I own, a 6.3 HP. I have a huge Clinton parts book but no real manuals for them, but if the hp rating helps you, that's good.
I did some searching and the model 1600 I have is the 6.3 hp. The motor with generator weighs a few pounds. I think I'll get her going and leave it at that. The generating plant is complete, and I might just try to bring it back to working and looking the way it did 50 years ago. Thanks

Rickski, how about some more pics of hyd unit. Looks like monarck road machinery, but can't quite get my head around it. One of the valves looks like an air valve, could it be an air motor driving hyd pump??
Yup. I'll untangle all the hose and will take some pics tomorrow after work. So far, I found a site that showed the pump mounted on a older Dodge Power wagon. It was mounted on top of the generator bracket. I think I'll rig it up on a sheet of plywood with an electric motor and a couple hydraulic cylinders so I can figure out the valves. I think it might be rigged to only provide up pressure. I can probably run 2 cylinders with up pressure only or maybe one cylinder with one valve for up pressure and the other for down pressure.

Rickski, why not get rid of those one way valves, Just keep pump, oil tank, scrounge salvage yard for a one or two spool, two way valve[s] That way, you got two way cylinder control. Check SURPLUS CENTER, or NORTHERN, the small series valves are not too expensive. Log splitter valve would work too.
My opinion, George
I think that is what I'll do. I'll keep my eyes open for a 2 or 3 spool, 2 way valve. Thanks,
