I bought a box full of parts without looking through it very well and made out like a bandit.

Nice buy! It’s always fun going through a mystery box like that, you never know what kind of surprises are in there. Looks like you did very well As far as the value of all those parts.

It’s like a treasure hunt. It was fun to dig through it, I’ve known the guy I bought it off of for a few years now and I didn’t think he’d steer me wrong.

Sweet deal. Once in a great while I come across a box of goodies. Not as good your haul, but enough to get downright giddy sometimes. Lol.

If nothing else you got some pretty good trade bait. Maybe Clements himself would be interested.

Just the cool factor of a Clements carb and fuel pump combo is way high. I got a feeling you gonna hold onto those. If not LMK if you are gonna sell em or post em someplace. Auction?

Iím going to use the carb for the big bore stroker Iím building. Iíll check the pumps and see if theyíre good. I probably wonít use more than one of them.

You need to march right down to the police station and turn yourself in, because that is a STEAL!!
That disc was a flywheel screen BTW, Briggs by the looks of it.
Just wondering, how much would you ask for that tillotson carb?

Excellent score! Any time you pull a Clements part out of a mystery box you done good, but when you pull that many out! That's a Tony the Tiger moment! Great!!!

When I saw that carb I knew for sure that I was buying it. I didnít even notice the fuel pumps.

Just to make sure we're on the same page, I'm referring to the Tillotson carb at 5:32 in the video. It'd be great on my Briggs, 'cause I want to do something a little different than a Mikuni like everyone else is doing!

Thatís a harbor freight tig that Iíve had for about six years now. Iíve been very happy with its performance and Iíll buy another one when this one dies.
