  5. Clinton engine

    Thought I would have a look at an old Clinton engine I have in the shed, it's a B1290 petrol paraffin but unfortunately missing the carb, after closer inspection I think it is a new old stock engine. On the cowling is a decal with Trojan Works, Purley Way. As the little tractors that Trojan made in the 60's were either red or blue does anyone know what this could have been fitted to as it is yellow.

    Hi, no I have not seen a tap like that before but a seal kit for the normal tap may fit, you have tried stripping it down and cleaning it out have you ?

    Hi, any chance of a picture of the tap, it may be the same tap as fitted to other Honda equipment

    Thanks, I will have to be more patient and perhaps read the instructions more thoroughly.
  14. Ultrasonic cleaner

    Something to think about before you buy one, I use mine mainly for cleaning a single carb but even though they have a built in heater it is a bit slow so I fill mine from the kettle, trouble is it needs 3 kettles full to cover the carb, not a big problem but frustrating when you just want to get it set up, so a smaller one would have probably suited me better, except when I put my bike carbs in it, not big enough for a bank of 4 carbs and you don't really want to be separating them. So ideally I need a smaller one and a bigger one but that's not going to happen. I still haven't tried carb cleaner, I just use washing up liquid.
  15. Allen Scythe confusion

    Something else I've noticed on my Allen, it has adjustable height handlebars which most don't have
