Hi, sports fans. Was given a February, 1961 HOT ROD Magazine. In it was a wonderful article where eleven bone-stock kart engines were dynoed. Hope someone finds this as interesting as I did!

Clinton A-400: 2.25 hp @ 4,000 rpm
Clinton A-490: 1.85 hp @ 4,000 rpm
Clinton E-65: 3.0 hp @ 5,000 rpm
West Bend 580: 4.5 hp @ 6,000 rpm
West Bend 700: 4.75 hp @ 5,000 rpm
Homelite KR-92: 5.0 hp @ 8,000 rpm
Power Products AH-82: 5.0 hp @ 5,000 rpm
Poulan S-200: 5.0 hp @ 9,000 rpm
McCulloch Mc6: 6.6 hp @ 8,000 rpm
McCulloch Mc10: 4.5 hp @ 8,000 rpm
McCulloch Mc10 (power pack): 7.3 hp @ 9,000 rpm Note: according to the article, the power pack Mc10 was stroked to 5.8 cubic inches, had thinner piston rings and a different carburetor.

I think a few of those Clinton numbers are not correct.
