shorten K321 shaft

Recommended Posts

Hello: I acquired a K321 to replace the K301 in a 7112. Everything looks good except the shaft end of the crankshaft is too long. I don't need it to power a pto - just want to avoid cutting up the front grill or run without the hood. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to shorten this shaft. Can it be cut off using a saw of some kind? Ground off? Is it possible to cut it with a torch by keeping the rest of the crank cool to avoid damage? Thanks.
