Tis a good idea.

The crosley trans on ebay fell through. I was willing to drop 150 shipped but ended up going closer to 165.

Yeah, it looks like the going rate for PK tranny is about 250. Crosley is about $150 but then you have to think about getting it sealed up at both ends. You'll be able to do better if you're patient and are willing to rebuild the tranny.

Just a warning note on the Magnum fuel pumps. My GTX-18 only has 400+ hours on it and the pump has already been a problem. Replacing it on the tractor was impossible because of the engine cowling so I installed an electric pump. Working great so far and cheaper than a stock mechanical one.
When I first started having trouble with the pump I did a good bit of forum searching and read a lot of similar stories.....

Thinking the driveshaft will run under the oil filter side. :) Fixed position no swing like stock.

Wow, great deal!
Yeah with the opposed twins... it sure cuts down on height, but now you got to deal with the reduced clearance on each side. You're right about the driveshaft on the one side. On the other side, you got to watch for where your footrest will be. Good luck!

Cookie.. If ya don't mind me asking. What kind of shaft is on the input/output of that power king?

Sure.
The input has a 7/8 OD spline shaft. It's not an ANSI standard spline from what I can tell, and I spent a little time looking for stuff that fit, but just getting the inside hub from a PK or Crosley clutch disc gets you the perfect fit to it. That is, if you're willing to spend the time to fit it up to whatever you're using to drive it.

The output has a 3/4 OD spline shaft. I spent more time on this b/c it didn't have such an obvious choice to fit my needs. The manufacturer does have a 3/4 standard keyed shaft, but you're going to spend like $125 to get it. On the PK, it fits into a coupler, but I wanted to run the sprocket right off the output shaft. So what I ended up doing was welded a couple of the splines shut, leaving one in between that I carefully cut down into a keyway. Now I can just put a 3/4 ID sprocket on with the key. I was going to take a couple of pictures before I put it all back together - maybe tomorrow night. Hope that helps and doesn't confuse.

No i believe that works. I have seen a couple trannys on ebay that already have the sprocket and pulley installed. Hmm. I'm not sure if i will run directly off the output or have a short shaft or coupler. Depends on how things fall.

Still planning but could use some part sourcing help here...

Thinking a T-Bar style shifter end.. and a T-Handle clutch lever. Something like you would pull up towards the shifter knob (bar).

Anyone know of an off the shelf T-Handle w/cable that's beefy enough to actuate a tensioner for a V-Belt?

What if you just use any t-bar and then use some 3/8 steel rod bent in the shape of an L as your clutch lever. You could weld a couple of loops onto the shift rod and the L would slide through them. Use a washer or cotter pin as a stop on either end.

Tis a possibility. I guess it would better match the original era the tractor was made. LOL.
