Briggs 10hp - tapered shaft - tow mower

Recommended Posts

First post I am fabricating a tow mower for my 716H, I am using a MF 8 frame as a platform, intend to use a 42 inch AC deck and a 10hp briggs horizontal shaft motor from a generator. I got the motor separated from the generator today and discovered a tapered crankshaft. Ooops. Can i source and mount a pulley to the non-tapered part of the crank? It measures 1.375 inches and should line up quite well with the drive pulley below. Can I source a pulley for the tapered shaft? The motor has very few hours on it, and will cost me nothing, so I would really like to use it. Just hope I can overcome the tapered shaft issue. Regards dw
