Hello, I am new here, this is my first post. I'm looking for engine parts for a 1934 Standard Twin. The tractor was my dads, I remember him using it when I was a kid. I remember when it broke down on him too. I was always fascinated by this tractor. For the last 40 years its been yard art. I would like to hear it run again, but it is missing most internal engine parts. Does anyone know where I could find a complete engine with the clutch?

Or, if anyone knows where I can find parts, I could go that way too.

I need pistons, pins, connecting rods, all valves, springs and retainers. I may need lifters and camshaft, but I'm not sure on those yet, they are there, I think I can reuse these. I also need the oil pan, oil pump, oil pump push rod and that plate is above the oil pan. I need one valve adjustment cover. Need the clutch assembly with the couplings and shaft that connect it to the transmission.

 

I think finding a engine will be easier, lol, but Ill do whatever I need too. Anyway, does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Welcome to GTTalk.  One of our sponsors may be able to help find the parts.  I agree you might be better off trying to find a new engine.

Welcome to GTT. Check in our Manuals Section for the Manuals that you need. I've seen several of those machines sold in my area in the last 5 years. They are around but you will have to do some searching. Try our sponsors, swap meets and tractor shows. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome aboard.  Your best bet is to pick up another tractor for parts.  They are well built and are pretty common to find.  Run down to the Portland Indiana swap meet this spring and I am sure you will find more than one to choose from.  They are usually priced in the $100.00 to $300.00 range here in New England.  Good hunting and keep us informed of your progress.

welcome to the walk-behind area. As stated above your probably better off finding a donor engine to use, as 34 was about the first yr for those. Seems to me that in 38 they added the governor to them, so if you find a 37 back it should be the same engine. You could use a newer one, actually you'll like it better with a governor.

Thanks for info guys. I'm going to look for another engine or tractor. Whatever shows up first. In the meantime, I'm going to look for suitable substitutes for the engine I have, just for the challenge of it. I think the most difficult part will be the oiling system. Pistons and valve will be easy, connecting rods I will probably have to have made. The clutch may be difficult too, but I'm going to search my mom's for a box of parts. Hopefully at least the clutch is around somewhere.

A local guy has a standard twin with plow.  He sometimes makes noises about selling it.

I could put you in touch with him it you like.

I've got a chevy 4.3 v-6 if you would like to step up the h.p. a little. 

Just need to figure out where to put the radiator, battery, etc...    :D       Rick​
