I came across this old Briggs ZZ engine and I was wondering what this type of clutch set up was used on. Can anyone Help me out?

Looks like what is on an old powered reel mower that I have. Good Luck, Rick

I've seen something similar used on a snowblower somewhere in my distant past but can't say I've ever seen anything exactly like that, Did you ever find out what it was used on?

I never did find out what it was used for, but the bronze piece is exactly the same as the twin disc clutch on my Jaques Mighty might tractor. I'm assuming that this clutch was made by the twin disc clutch company, but I'm not sure what it was used on.

That looks very much like the clutch used on a grand haven tractor. They used a briggs zz and it has red paint on it, which is the color of grand havens.

Tbrooks, it appears that you are correct. The clutch linkage looks to be mounted in the same position on the engine in this pic of a Grand Haven. Thanks for the help!
