I have a Clinton horizontal shaft engine I took apart as a kid and never reassembled.  This was stored in my father's garage that I recently cleaned out.  I have all of the parts, just never got around to rebuilding it.  My question is...what did this come off of?  It is vented at the top of the flywheel cover.  It has no vent in front of the flywheel.  It's an interesting design.  I haven't seen one like it.  Any experts here have any ideas or an answer?  Judging by the size of the piston, I would guess it to be 3 or 4 HP.  I didn't get the numbers off the motor.  I can if need be.  Thanks for the help!

The idea of chipping materials for bedding has been around for quite a while . equipment manufacturers catered to the small and independent farmers.

What does the exhaust look like ?

The muffler looks like the muffler on dad's old Cub Cadet 73.  It's a normal muffler for the era.  Nothing special.  I've attached a photo I acquired online for reference. 

 

The output shaft is around 3/4"x3"...roughly.  I didn't measure it.

 

I was thinking maybe a snowblower/thrower.??  With it being a smaller HP engine, I can't see it doing a lot of heavy work to necessitate that type of venting, but I could be wrong.?? 

 

This falls in line with a few other things I found in the garage that I couldn't identify.  There was about 50 years of accumulation with some items dated before that.

Awesome info.  I couldn't come up with anything.  I guess Google hasn't seen one either!  Thanks!

 

Reassembling that should make a fun little winter project.

The mod seems to a response to situations encountered .

Farmers are always learning new ways to be creative .
