In looking for a 4 groove pulley for my Bolens cross bread I have found that some list the pulley from Wisconsin as 1", others at 1-1/8" and other motors at 7/8".  Others list what tractor it came off but nothing about the motor.  It would be real handy to have a reference to go to for the various motors and crank shaft sizes.  I tired a search with Google and got more Honda listing than Wisconsin.  Is anyone aware of such a reference?

I have crankshaft "drawings" in all my engine books.

 

Wisconsin, Tecumseh, Kohler, Briggs, Clinton: you name it, I have the specs.

 

It will not be specific to Bolens but instead specific to the engine.

OK, but most of us don't have all the books or are in the business to warrant buying them.  Did The Wisconsin  10 hp have a 1" or 1-1/8" shaft  or both? ?  That is the main thing I am up against.  Can't get at mine to measure it.

Ah, but that is why I own the books.  You tell me what info you need and I'm more than happy to dig and find it.  :thumbs:  It just might take me some time to get it done. 

 

My books says it could have both.  Standard looks to be 1'' assuming you are talking about a TRA-10D.  To know much more I would need to know the spec number.

OK.  Thanks much.  The 1- 1/8 was probably in the larger HP engines.  Just guessing like the 14 on up or there about.  At least I know what to look for now when they say it came off a 1053, I will know a 1" bore.

 

Thanks again.

Found out today I can't use the PTO on this tractor.  Due to the motor design, if I move it forward far enough to have room for the PTO belts the hood won't bolt on or line up with the dash.  going to forgo the PTO on this tractor.  Have a 2 groove pulley on the way, to be here Monday.

I found it.  In the download manual section #13870741-Fmc has a section in it that shows all the specs for each motor used in the medium tube frame tractors.  I over looked that when I went through the manual to find the 6 speed transmission manual.
