After the welding mess I found, I have the pulley off of the shaft. With funds preventing me from taking to a machinist I've been working on this mess myself. Thought I share pics of what I found and get thoughts of how to proceed. Thanksgear2.JPG gear3.JPG gear1.JPG gear4.JPG

You need a new/good used clutch assembly. Get a piece of 1/4 key stock from any hardware store and cut to length, grind all the slobbered weld off the end of the crankshaft and bolt the new clutch on and hook the wire back up so you can electrically engage/disengage it with the switch on dash like it was originally from factory instead of that mickey mouse manual system someone rigged up.

Other than an OE replacement clutch, there is no easy fix here.  You can't simply buy a pulley to slip on the crank, as the pulley sits out from the end of the crank to align to the jackshaft pulley.  This would require machining a crankshaft pulley adapter that would reach out far enough to get the pulleys aligned.  Either a machinist must be involved, or go the easier, and possibly just as cheap route finding a used replacement clutch.

 Thanks Luke, I think the search may be like looking for a needle in a hay stack. I'm gonna keep on the look out. It's a great running machine.

Check with our site sponsors also.  One may have a parts machine with the clutch still on it.

Here's the clutch assembly. It wasn't buried as deep as I figured! Lol do you need the complete assembly with the field coil or just the clutch part with pulley? It seems to be in good shape but one thing I would recommend is take some jb weld and smooth it over the coil windings to protect from the clutch wearing into them in time as the old covering is flaking off of them. Bearing seems to turn freely but I can't guarantee anything as its used! Let me know what parts ya need/want. Luke

P-catz, if you can afford, I advise buying the complete clutch from Luke.  Your electromagnet is beginning to look rough.  Luke's looks great.  Luke, do you have the retaining bolt & washer?

No, it's just a fine threaded bolt and heavy flat washer......just get a heavy washer that is just a touch larger diameter than the crankshaft and fits the bolt tight. Nothing special. Luke

Yep, that'll do fine.  I would also add a lock washer between the bolt head & large flat washer.
