I just purchased a mechanically engaged front pto for my 3415,I knew that were a couple of pieces were missing. I'm having difficulty locating the proper service manual for a parts break down. I did spend some time searching the simplicity site last night but came up empty handed as far as pdf files were concerned. Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ;)

Reed, Depending on what engine the clutch was installed on originally, #1, #2, #3 & #4 may be different. That clutch was used on engines with 1" crankshafts and others with 1-1/8" crankshafts. Also, bolt & hardware #9, #10 & #11 may be different. Some engines used 3/8", others used 7/16". #12 is different between a 36" & 42" snowblowers. That sure doesn't make sense, and I don't know why there should be a difference. #16 has two holes, one set is used for Kohler, the other for Briggs. You'll figure out which is which if you don't have the proper throw. Spacer #2 is critical to achieve the proper .060 gap on the specific engine. I found that using a stack of machine washers was the easiest way to determine the proper spacer length and then machine a spacer accordingly.
