hey everybody, i've got a small 8hp briggs and stratton i've been working on lately, and I was just wondering if there is a way to get from a 1" drive shaft down to a 3/4"....
is there by any chance a conversion sleave or something?? i know this is a wild stab in the dark but if anyone knows of a product, PLEASE let me know!! thanks

I sold small engine parts for many years and have never seen any adapter to go from larger to smaller. There are bushings to go viceversa.

I know people that have had the cranks ground down so that they had a better selection of pulleys available for racing engines.

I would check with the local welder ... Or machine shop... Get something made for cheap..

Good luck.

oh well, i broke down and ordered the clutch that i needed... i ended up finding one for $45, which was heck of a lot better than the ones i originally price quoted as $85, so i got one.

its going on a gokart a friend of mine is having me fix up for his nephews.. its going to be a speedy little thing hopefully. i did a bunch of fab welding on it tonight, bigger engine required new bracing etc.

thanks anyways for your help!
