Default Clinton collector checking in

Hi All,

Some of you know me from other forums and posts from long ago. Just wanted to drop by and say Iím still as into the small engines as I was 10 years ago. I have about 50 engines and a well stocked inventory of NOS. Still quite enjoyable for me. I spend my days building custom cars so to get away and do something less hour intensive with quick reward is enjoyable. I do about a dozen rebuilds for customers every year and sell NOS parts to whoever need them. You can PM me with needs. Sharing a few pictures of engines I have done this year and some of my stuff.

Nice collection of Red Horses! I always pick them up whenever I'm lucky enough to stumble upon one. Right now I'm at three but I've only been collecting for less than five years. I also have a few Long Lifes. I'll be sure to keep you in mind when I need parts.

Very nice collection of Clinton engines. I don't really collect them, but I have about a dozen of them. I have one you can maybe help me ID. When I bought it it had a side draft Honda made carb and a homemade intake. The infomation on the tag is,

Serial # 10495839-A

Model # 414-1301-012.

What brand of carb does it use and whats the carb, air cleaner and intake manifold look like ?

Any idea as to year and horsepower of the engine. Thank's in advance.

Your engine is a 6.3hp engine. Was supposed to have an Updraft Carter UT carburetor and a united oil bath air cleaner. I know I have an air cleaner and carburetor adapter but I do not have the carburetor or air horn.

The carter UT came on several other applications just need to make sure it has the right throttle shafts and intake horn diameter. The larger grey engine pictured in the original post has setup like you need.

I want to thank you for your time and information. I am going to build a temporary intake and use a different carb to fire it up to check it's overall condition. I can see Clinton's are well built engines and they keep finding their way into my garage. Mine are all cast iron 4 stroke models. I like Briggs engines because they are easy to find as are parts and they don't cost much. The only Clinton engine I have ever bought was the model I just asked you about, all the others were given to me. I will bookmark this info for future needs.

I think a Walbro HEW-2 carburetor would also work, but finding one would be a chore. At least you wouldn't need a manifold or air horn; it's all one unit.

I have a lot of Briggs Flo-Jet updraft carbs in several sizes that I could probably use. I believe the Honda carb that was adapted to it when I got it is way to large to Work. I also have some Carter model N carbs and some Tecumseh carbs, but I believe they would be too small. I am thinking the small 4 bolt Flo-Jet would be my best bet.

I just dragged out my only Red Horse with a Carter and snapped a few pictures for you. It's missing the speed control rod which I'll have to make, unless Charlie happens to have one (p/n 16333/245-11)?

I feel a three-bolt medium Flo-Jet would be a better choice. Here's one next to a NOS intake manifold. It would take a bit of work to mount up.

turmlos, I believe that your idea of using a medium Flo-Jet is a better choice after looking at the sizes of two of the carbs in my garage. For now I will build a custom intake to run the engine and get a better idea of it's condition. If it is a good runner, I need to decide what I am going to do with it. If I decide to restore it, I will be needing a few parts. If I use it as a work horse, I will probably leave the Flo-Jet carb on it. My favorite Clinton engine is a 4-1/2 horse engine that came off of a tiller if I remember right. I believe it is a Long Life 498 model.
