Here is a thread I am starting on all HP Clinton engines. Only reply to this thread with useful pictures relating to all racing engines and high performance parts.

Give accurate description of picture.

This will be an awesome reference.

I would like to thank Larry Rarus for his large collection of 2 cycle info as well as any of the people involved in the collecting and restoring whose pictures are used here.

I thought I knew a lot about these engines but it proves I knew little!



First is a crankshaft identification:

Blocks:

Pretty much explains they are almost exactly the same except for a few extra bosses and some cooling fin differences

I think it is shot peened too!

Be interesting to know the psi breaking strength as well as RPM capabilities of these rods as well as the aluminum one in the next post

Here is one of my favorite rods:

Found in the E-65, some chainsaws, and a select few model 500s

Forged alumium alloy that's shot peened as well as a replaceable bronze bushing with a replaceable journal bearing.

This is the definition of OVERKILL!

Came in a select few of outboards and possibly others?

Same as the aluminum rod stated above except has a needle bearing and heavier shot peening.

I would love to know what that piston is from on the left. The right two are panther pistons. I really like the E-65 piston with 3 rings but whatever that 3rd one is it has a very high dome which is shaped for better flow and a window to compensate for the bigger dome.
