I have used a taper lock on a tiller engine that did not have a keyway. NO PROBLEM!

What is this weird oil tank?

And something that looks a bit like a regulator?

That is a remote reservoir for motor oil.  It keeps the correct level of engine oil as it runs.  I'm sure the regulator looking thingy controls the level of the oil, and may need to be placed at the right height to work.  You can change out the oil pan to a normal one with an oil fill tube.

Tried starting the motor last weekend.  It would idle OK, but revved up it was more productive than a smoke grenade.  A couple minutes and was at near zero visibility in the garage.  Stepped outside to get some air - as I emerged from the smoke, my son said it looked like something from a horror movie.

 

Got some time today to try some trouble shooting.  Pulled the air breather - the filter is soaked with oil.  That caused the intake to suck oil from the crank case.

 

Removed the air filter and tried again.  A few puffs of smoke from the oil in the intake and then it was as clean as anything.

 

Revving it up, would sputter and stall - a bit of choke would help it recover.  Hopefully all it needs is normal maintenance (carb kit, and cleanup of the fuel system).

 

For now, it's going to sit on the side and wait for the right tractor.

In the mean time, I'm going to keep an eye out for brackets to hold a starter/generator.
