Its about time you saw the light!

 

That shelf looks so much better now.  You're going to be collecting something good yet if you keep on adding quality like this.  :poke:

Jerome, does your binder have an issue date on the first page along with the serial number?

 

I am trying to figure out when each binder was made.  So far I have pegged down 4 different styles.

 

You only have one Clinton binder? I thought owning two was normal...

 

It is not normal at Old Paths Equipment.  I have two complete engine binders (one early Maquoketa edition, one early 1960's edition) one decrepit binder that came with only service manuals.  I have enough loose leaf literature from various binders to make two more complete ones.  I also have a box of unopened original Clinton envelopes that the factory sent to all the dealers containing updated price and parts lists, all the way from 1962 through the mid 1970's.  I bought the only chainsaw binder I have ever seen.  The only literature I lust after is an outboard binder, which would have been blue.  I also have original blueprints, internal factory letters, memo's and all sorts of other papers that were marked confidential way back in the day.

Yeah. 

 

I hear you.

 

Psychologists want to label it as an addiction.  But what do they know.  We all know that they hoard up every issue of the "Mumbo Jumbo Times" they get their latex gloved paws on.

Huh, I have 6 of those, each a little different and each a little thicker.

 

Every Clinton ever made in the US up till they sold the rights to Japan.

 

 

Triple model number before the variation letters/numbers Clintons apply to walk behind garden tractors, Ex - BB1102 AOE.

 

You want two of my books ?

That's interesting.  That logo on the cover seems to only appear on manuals.  I've never seen it on a part's box or an engine.

Here's pics of mine. The one on the left is older, but worse condition. Years ago (10 I think) I went through and sorted both binders and put all duplicates in the left binder to make one really nice binder full. On to the pics.

Then it is time, I shall start with you,

 

 I also have some engines and some of my inventory left to sell you if interested.

 

Half has already been sold and promised out to collectors but you are a Clinton collector and good friend to me so lets pm each other with pictures and quotes, it will take some time with my busy life but I have saved some of the rare hard to find parts for you.
