EXCELLENT!

 

I really like the bluish one in the third pic.  I have its twin but the backing plate deteriorated.  To just rub it between my fingers causes it to crumble.   Now the shroud has no place to mount.   :(

I call them "suck-and-blow" Clintons because the intake is on one side and the exhaust is on the other. :wave:

The 300 series Clintons are called T-Blocks for obvious reasons, odd ball valve design that were never produced again. The camera is not the best hence the sun bleached 350 on the left looking a little blue.

 

Could you upload a picture of your ? I would like to see.

I typed up a bit about the Newtons buried in GT Talk sometime last year, Clinton's swan song engine. The white engine next to the Newton is one of Clinton's last engines built in the US called the Gem series.

Hard to beat knock them for sure Pete, you have got me and Ben, both engine nuts so your in luck, looking forwards to the engine.

 

Soon I plan on typing up and forwarding everything I have learned about Clintons and some of it's secrets in the model codes.

Give me a minute to fire up the camera....

I don't remember taking the plug out.  Must have needed one in a pinch.....  It hasn't been down off the shelf in years.  Sure was a great running engine.  Wonder its not locked up with the cylinder exposed to humidity. 

:deadhorse:   The shroud is just sitting on there - there is no way to mount it.

Yep, I know what happened, same thing to the Homelite saw, pot metal submerged in cold damp environment for too long. The 300 series Clintons all took the same backing plates, the change out is just like a Briggs 6 so it can be replaced should another parts engine be found or you could sell that to someone looking to rebuild one.

 Lots of good looking parts.

 

Do us all a favor, remove the Saf-T-Vue air cleaner, dump out the oil, stuff a rag in the intake and keep the air cleaner in the house, it is worth just as much as the engine itself.
