If it was a straight shot, might get the 3/8 tap to go.
 

I'll see if I can find one and try that, Alan. I think most are metric, but I used a 5/16" on the RH support.


They also make an M8x1, prob pick one of each.

I hate it when you get into a situation like that. If you go the shortened tap route try to get a spiral point tap, less likely to jam. I'd be looking real hard at small electric radiator fans to replace that setup. Good luck. Great find by the way.

I stand corrected on the engine weight... I think I mixed it up with the air-cooled diesels the Air Force used for GPUs... The L3 series Mitsi was used in the Toro 223D, among others... similar set up, though no overhead drive shaft.  BTW, I know where an engine like yours is at... still has the fan drive, etc. though the fan is brittle and broken.  The owner may be willing to sell parts from it--like the bracket you need, etc.

I could definitely use the alternator belt adjusting bracket and possibly a muffler if it's cheap enough. That fan shaft is a very large piece,

I'll check on the alternator belt adjusting bracket--send me a PM with a picture so I can be sure to identify it..  The muffler on this engine is rusted out and not usable--sorry..

Sorry for not getting back with you folks, but Ma Bell screwed up. Cut my connection when they shouldn't have! Smitty, I made a bracket, so I'm good there. Got a couple pics for your pleasure:

Look a like it'll hold, are you planning on leaving it with the clamps or welding that bracket solid?

That's the option right now. Hope to leave the rubber between & clamp!

It lives! I opted to use hose clamps. I was afraid the muffler clamps would crush the shaft tube and create issues. I put 3 on it. Have a slight vibration at lower speeds, but smooths out a lot at more RPMs. It's ready for mowing duties! I'll post some pics later.

Nice repair. Since you have a bigger mower I will be up to get my FF soon.

I was scrounging thru the neighbors' fence row as he said there was a Sears plow in there somewhere. What I came up with was the muffler for the Toro. Got it welded back on. Just need to fab a brace at the forward end of it. Much quieter now!

Nothing like being able to hear when you get off the tractor. Glad you found the muffler
