1924 Continental W4 Parts

Recommended Posts


Can anyone tell me who has parts for this engine for a total rebuild? I have only found gaskets so far.

Also looking for a shop manual for this engine also.

Thank you.

If you're not already a member check the Durant Club (forum on this site) as the W4 seems to've been largely; if not completely, made for Durant/Star... ..

Have you tried Monte's Eqpmt, NW of Chicago, obsolete Cont'l pats dealer, and PA Ross Machinery in Dallas, longtime Cont;l dealer sometimes helpful??

Doubtful you'll find an overhaul set; if you're reduced to scrounging parts piecemeal, the W4 shares piston assembly, valves and bearings with some other  Cont'l engines; can send list if you think helpful...
