I have been looking for a Clinton 700 series engine for a Waterloo walk behind.  I may have found one, but the owner wants to sell it as a package deal with another engine that he claims is a Hewitt.  He is older and doesn't do the pictures via computer thing.  Anyone ever heard of anything even close?  I asked if it was a Lawson, but he was firm that it started with Hew...

The only thing that comes to mind that starts with HEW is a Walbro carburetor used on big Clinton Red Horse engines.  If he is digging for numbers, maybe he saw that? 

 

There was such a thing as a Jowitt engine.  Old antique crate from the early 1900's.

 

I have no clue.

 

How bad do you want a 700?  Any particular series?   I have an old Clinton, Michigan 700 that I would ship you if you wanted to pay that much and make me get rid of my old engine.  I'm a bit fond of it.

There was a  Witte Engine Works, Kansas City, Mo. that made engines  a hundred years ago and up through the begining of WWII. It may be worth taking a look. Take pictures if you go. Good Luck, Rick

That should settle it! If no one here is familiar with it, It has to be Rare!

I found a reference to Hewitt Motor Company in NYC circa 1912 making small trucks or vehicles . Not known about engine info .

My BIL went & got both engines for me.  I get them next week when I pick up the Waterloo 30 from Jtrojek.  He says it is a 3.5 hp Newton.  Pics when I get it home.
