Sad to admitt but I don't recall exactly what I paid for mine. Think it was $17.50. Decent shape and has always been shedded with virtually no weather checking on the tires.
I live less than 40 miles from the largest amish settlement west of the Mississippi River and that creates somewhat of a demand for walk behinds that other parts of the country might not see.
I do remember very vividly the first yank of the rope when the lil Clinton sprang to life like it was going to explode! Thank goodness I kept my witts and yanked the plug wire quick saving the engine. Once the air filter was removed I could see the problem. The throttle butterfly had worked loose and it was sucking air/fuel at wide open even though the governor was telling it to idle down. With 2 new screws reattaching the butterfly to the throttle shaft, the engine ran beautifully. Those old Clintons were one heck of a good engine.
I can only assume the original two little brass screws went through the engine. That why they are soft brass!
