    Take a look around this site I found it very useful for info on a Clinton engine.

    We also found many parts are still available directly from the US via ebay suppliers but do be aware of postage and import duties.

    That is a very useful link, loads of information.
    There is a Clinton Service and Maintenance Manual (revised 1978) in the VHGMC archive which contains service data and parts lists for 400 series engines. It is about 160 pages in total.

    MT Professional used the 900 Longlife cast iron engine. Capacity is 8.3 Cu in. = 136cc 3.25 hp @ 3600 rpm
    They work well being a bit heavier than the B&S engine, they seem to rev more freely and start better.

    Adjustable handles and they came with a set of slashers instead of the basic rotors. They had a cast hitch before the Major was fitted with it, this hitch was usually red. It says in the brochure that the frame was strengthened. I think they just mean the angle iron.
