Pulley shims

Recommended Posts

Hoss
I would like to Put a V twin Honda into a older Bolens tractor. Problem being the metric crankshaft and the SAE pulley don't fit. Does any one know where I can find pulley shims to make up the difference? The pulley is larger I.D. than the O.D. of the shaft. They must make them somewhere.

Try an electric supply house, they have all kinds of that stuff. I can't say for sure if they would carry metric, but perhaps a motorcycle shop would have something along those lines.

The pulley from the Bolens is a 4 belt cast iron pulley. I don't think I could find a metric replacement for this. Many people have put Honda engines in PowerMax tractors, how do they adapt for fit up?

I don't know how the PowerMax guys do it, but I imagine Honda builds engines to different specs. Just like Kohler and Briggs, crank PTOs come in different lengths and diameters. Why not just get your pulley machined to fit the Honda crank?

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
