Did all CLINTON engines around 2HP have a thumbscrew type oil filler?

Wow, I have one of these that was given to me. Sometimes a gift is a good deal and sometime it is not. The engine started and ran fine, but smoked like a smokestack. Upon disassembly I found the following wrong:
1- The bore was worn oval and over .010 in. over size.
2- The valves were shot
3- The valve guides were hopelessly worn out
4- The main bearings were worn oblong and so oversize that the flywheel was rubbing against the coil.

I used it as an exercise to see if I could bore the cylinder. That worked out quite well, especially since I used my mill drill. I over bored .020 oversize and got a good clean, round bore. I was going to get the parts to fix it, but the total came to over $120. It just didn’t seem worth it for this engine.

cool! it would be worth fixing if you need a small engine for something! its a lot cheaper than buying a new one! i only had to replace my rotted out gas tank! it was very hard to find another like it!

Speaking of Clinton engines, I ran across something that Clinton engine collectors or anyone wanting more information on Clinton engines may find of interest. I belong to the Vintage Garden Tractor Club Of America (VGTCA). They publish a newletter 6 times a year that is dedicated to, as their name indicates, the preservation of vintage garden tractors of all kinds. Every once and a while they offer publications for sale that they put together. Available now is: The Clinton Engine Story and The Bolens story. They are offered at a very noiminal cost and do a great job in describing in detail how these companies were formed, along with many pictures and illustrations, and what happened to them through the years. You can contat VGTCA as follows:

Jim,

Thanks for the heads up on the Clinton & Bolens information. I've had an interest in Clinton engines for many years and have acquired a few including a couple of circa 1955 chain saws. The one tips the scales at 37 lbs, while the other is a lightweight at 25 lbs. The heavier one is a belt drive to the chain. Had some fun trying to find a belt for it, every place I asked told me it was a boat anchor! Fooled them though, eventually located a belt at Engine Parts Supply Co. in Minneapolis, Minn. in 1992. Start it up occasionally just to hear it run. Flywheel acts like a gyroscope when it's revved up and takes quite an effort to turn the saw!

Anyway I'm hoping to get copies of the Clinton and Bolens information you mentioned.

Bill

Too bad Clinton like many other engine manufacturers in the US have gone. But I guess as they say "you don't appreciate something until it is gone...". I'm going to drive over to the restored museum and make a donation next time I'm up in that area. Love those old Clinton engines. For some of us they were a fond childhood memory.

saturday i pulled my mid 50's clinton 3100 out and dusted it off. i havent started it since late fall, grega and his dad witnessed it as i said I call it my little one pull wonder. it is the one engine i have that starts on the first pull about 90% of the times i pull it out to run it. and just to think my grandpa trash picked this engine years ago and used the little belt driven generator to run a battery charger for the bulldozer in the shed. i think it has very low hours on it. and it took right off as i said it would in one pull! boy i love that engine! and i really should pull the engine off the board its on and take a picture of the original clinton mounting template that is under the engine!
