Cent Clutch for Kohler 1 1/8" crank
« on: April 13, 2015, 03:52:40 PM »
What are those running a 1 1/8" shaft vertical Kohler using for a centrifugal clutch. Bully isn't making them anymore & I really don't like the idea of it being under the mower in the dirt.

Yes they look really nice but unfortunately they are almost as much as the owner paid for the mower. He's not a serious racer. Just built it with a Kohler because that is what the mower he had had in it.

if he is on that tight of budget run a belt clutch.   Especially if he is running a vertical shaft engine in the FXT class.

Or run a belt to his RAGB and use a 1" or a 3/4" bore clutch on the box.

He gave less than $700 for a FXT style mower???!!!!    I gotta see this thing!!!!!   I have $400 in tires on mine (not counting the 4 spares).

It's not a competitive FX. He already had the mower & paid a friend of mine to convert it to a "racer" for his kids. Stock engine & turf tires. It has a belt clutch but keeps burning up belts.

Have the PTO side of your crank turned down, and a key way machined in it, local shops wouldn't charge much for it.

And your crank will snap.   Unless your running a stock engine.

^ Add an engine plate and 3rd bearing support to the PTO shaft

No need for a billet crank.

If he is burning up belts on a stock engine then there must be other issues.  It may not have enough tension, cheap belt or poor alignment.  It has been a long time since I burned up a belt and I can abuse it a lot.

Who's mower is it Bob?
