The crank looks really good Kenny. Is the radius tight enough for the clutch to slide on all the way?

The clutch doesn't go all the way to the radius. If I remember right, there is a spacer of sorts in there.

Then if need be, you could grind the interior of the spacer to allow it to go back further.

I know the old crank had marks where the PTO stopped and was well short of the radius. But, I will do what is needed to make it work. If it becomes an issue, the next crank will be a smaller radius for sure.

Looking back at the pics, I see where the clutch sat, so yep, you have PLENTY of room!+
