Aaron's Dad dropped this off the other day. Used the fork lift attachment to bring it up so I could check it out. It has great compression! Blowed my thumb off the plug hole. Next is getting fire for the plug then carb cleaning. It's an oldie, but the tines hardly look used.

The main reason I'm fooling with this is the Clinton engine on it. It does have reverse for the tines.

More or less! It's for the collective garden here, I'm just trying to see if it will run! Then I can fix whatever else pops up!

Nice.....When I first saw the tiller, I thought it looked like a SNAPPER Tiller I had back in 1974!

Think it's older with the Clinton 4.5 HP engine!

How hard will it be to find a gas tank?

The tines show no wear.  That engine likely has little run time on it.

Haven't a clue, but I have one I will try to use for it.

That's what I am thinking, Daniel. Aaron's Dad said it stayed parked most of the time. Got knocked over and bent the handles.

 

If anyone has some input on a Clinton, I could use some help here!

I think that one has the same magneto/points as used in earlier Tecumseh's.

That's a bad word to put next to a Clinton! I do not care for Tecumseh unless it's a very early model! We have another tiller here he brought over, but it has a vertical shaft Tecumseh on it! That's a last resort for me to work on!

If it's a vertical 6hp TEC, then it may be a goodun.  Some of those have pressure lubrication & last & last.  But, they still have the TEC carbs, which are almost always a pain.

Only thing I know about vertical Tec's is if you spit close by, the fuel tank has a half inch of water in it!

Is it an M/W tiller or is just the engine that color?

I took the reverse bracketry off to get the main belt off and it is red under there.

Looks to be. It fits the mount holes just fine.
