    Default "Graham--I have the same motor

    "Graham--I have the same motor as Tim Zimmerman--a 1969 3.5 H.P. Wards Sea King manufactured by Clinton--It uses an external fuel tank with a unique connector at the engine. I need the same hose connector. Is there a common connector, such as OMC or Mercury that would work? By the way, I located a recoil assembly at http://www.anglersfishinginfo.com/cl...ed/motors.html buy did not find a fuel hose connector--any suggestions?"

    Default "Sorry, wasn't looking bac

    "Sorry, wasn't looking back far enough with my Clinton manuals - both of you have "J" model Clintons (J350 more precisely).

    I have found original Clinton part numbers for the fittings -

    69-331-500 was the male end and
    69-332-500 the female end (the end on your motor in the picture).

    Don't have a clue where you would find one though. Personally might be inclined to change both ends - looks like maybe the Merc round style connectors may "cosmetically" fit.

    If you aren't worried about looks, for less than 20 bucks you can get OMC fittings - engine mounted and hose end (which I use on my Mercs) simply because all "OMC's" are the same so only need to carry 1 spare gas line that will fit whatever I have hangin' off the back..."

    "Mike, Wards is out of business and Chrysler who built this 1966 model motor has been out of business as well for over 20 years.

    Some parts are still available, depending on what you are looking for and what it may need.

    Personally, I wouldn't spend very much on it. Even in perfect running condition it is worth somewhat under 100 bucks in the used market...."

    Someone is going to give me a line fitting he thinks may work, but if it doesn't Iwill take the advice above and convert it.

    Mine was stored dry (properly; it was shipped and then shelved) and I need to add the lower unit oil. I ordered a manual, but I want to go ahead and get this done if I can. The vent plug is obvious - in the exhaust/water outlet. Is the fill plug one of the screws for the prop gear housing?

    This one is in pretty amazing shape. It looks like it was pretty much rebuilt or at least refurbished when it was shipped and then just set aside for whatever reason. Everything turns freely. I was still taking a chance buying it dry, but the guy's story rings true (shipped to him, kept it as a spare for a while, doesn't want to mess with setting it up so selling cheap - $60). Of course I already spent another $40 or so getting a tank and line, and $9 on a manual, and..."

    Default "Mac, Clinton made a decent mo

    "Mac, Clinton made a decent motor.

    However, they are long out of business. Parts can be difficult to find, and expensive if you do find them.

    A 9 horse Clinton is worth no more than 100-150 bucks in the used market, it probably only cost about 300-500 brand new depending on the year.

    You can&#39;t compare it to an OMC or a Merc of the same period. A 9 horse Clinton probably came from the late 70&#39;s - a similar &#34;Brand&#34; name would sell for 500 or more, would still be somewhat supported by the mfg to some degree, would have a solid ignition system and be a water cooled motor.

    Additionally, this is a single cylinder engine. So unless tuned perfectly it will shake like a wet dog outside on a cold day - a major mfg would have built this in a 2 cylinder model.

    The 9 horse was a combination air cooled/water cooled motor. The engine itself was basically a lawnmower engine and was air cooled. The exhaust was water cooled - helped keep the noise to a minimum among other things.

    If it&#39;s running well it still is a decent motor, but not for 300 bucks - it&#39;s worth half that if it&#39;s in decent shape..."

    "Ken, not really the expert - just have alot of info laying around [img][/img]

    If you wipe away some more of the guck you will find the model to be VWB 27903B, which makes it a 1968, single cylinder, 3.5 horse Chrysler built for Montgomery Wards department stores.

    I can&#39;t even find a part number for a prop, or anyplace that sells them. I was never too fond of Chryslers and have limited information as a result.

    Laings Outboards sells most maintenace parts for this and as a shot in the dark you could try getting ahold of the guys at www.discount-marine-parts.com - they used to be a Chrysler dealer way back and still have tons of factory parts - might be able to help you with the prop &#40;or at least a part number and a nudge in the right direction&#41;.

    As to value - not much, 25-50 bucks if it&#39;s running...."

    If you clean up the tag a little better I think you should find that the model is actually GG8960A, making it a twin cylinder, 5 horse identical to Gale&#39;s own model 5D14 &#34;buccaneer&#34;.
