I have seen posted on here somewhere that carries steel bushings to use on Crankshafts and PTO's. I have a replacement engine for one our 318's and it has 1 1/8" PTO shaft, the clutch is for the standard JD Onan 1 7/16" PTO. McMaster-Carr doesn't carry them, I thought they do. Give me a idea where to get them..

Have you measured that shaft Brian? That seems like an odd size but then again I'm not familiar with the Onan engines.

Check with a local small engine shop. Then may have one in a 20 year draw. Which I could help you further.

Thanks Guys!! I am going to check with my local shops, and I can machine one myself. I thought I remembered someone posting about someplace that had these bushing on the shelf.

Al, How is the bushing holding up? Have you noticed any play from it mushrooming on the shaft? How many hours do you think it has on it?

The bushing held up fine , guessing about 5 years now , only a couple of hundred hours , If your worried about any play Loc-Tite makes sleeve retainer that fills gaps of a few thousandths or some other Loc-Tite's that would be as hard to get off if needed . Al

I just went out and checked Big Bertha's Onan. It has the 1-7/16" crank in it. Yes it's odd, but was common with Onan, I believe.
