Seller says it is not the original engine, but it sure looks like a Clinton B700 to me.  Why are they always so far away?

I know! A tiller attachment!  When was the last time you saw one of those for a walk behind that wasn't a Gravely?  And a B700 for my Waterloo 20 to boot!  If only it wasn't 5 hours one way & full of rain water!

That is a 990069 Simplicity 12" tiller sold 1957-1965 less a cover over the tines. The Montgomery Ward catalog number was 1353R 1958-1962 and was new to them in 1958.

Well Guys ... I'm what they call a new boy to the forum but when I sit here & consider the amount of roads travelled ... lets just say I'm a seasoned Ole'School Tech.

I got me a bleached out lawn ornament in the shop & the more I sit here & look at'er the more I appreciate all you dedicated guys who refuse to ignore where we all have been.

My hat is off to ya'all
