need some engine help

Recommended Posts

I just fixed up an old chipper and blew a rod on it right through the case. However, it was a 5HP briggs with a 1"x3" shaft. My over anxious father went out and found another very nice briggs 5hp for $75. Not a bad deal but the shaft is only 3/4"x2 1/4". Does anyone now if i can get a sleeve or something that i can put over the new shaft to make it a 1" keyed shaft.

msasso, What was on the original shaft? A pulley for a belt? If so, you could possibly find the same size pulley that would fit the new engine shaft. A little more info would help.

the shredder/chipper plate mounts directly onto the 1" SHAFT.

Ahhh. That complicates things a bit. I would imagine a competent machine shop could fabricate something like that, but my guess is it wouldn't last too long under that environment, but I'm no expert. If you want it done right, I'd try to swap that motor for one you need that's a precise fit. Just my two cents' worth...

.125 shim stock should be available at any good parts store.
