  Is it a two stroke? From what I can see it has a rather unusual placement of the intake tube.

Hi Mike

The Clifford is powered by a JAP 600 cc engine is a four stroke this engine was used to power motorbikes in the past and was adapted to fit in a horticultural machine they were fitted in many walk behinds and sit on tractors in Great Britain

  Just googled a Norton motorcycle site and saw pics of a 2 cyl version disassembled. I see now it's a flathead design which explains to me the intake and exhaust placement. It has some really big valves, so I'm sure on a walk behind it is just loafing.

I think the British and European walk behinds are so cool!  They are so massive compared to most US walk behind tractors.  They seem to speak "show us some ground, we are ready to work".
