I read in some thread here that the Kohler powered PKs used the flywheel side for PTO. Maybe that is all you need, a PK PTO clutch setup?

 The project might be over my head or more of an undertaking than I think it is going to be. 

 

Chicken   :poke:  :D

 

Seriously the flywheel issue is not really any issue in my mind if you can find a pulley or adapter to bolt up to it to drive snow blower pulleys or driveshaft. My AC HB212 had the Briggs mounted with flywheel side toward the rear bolted to the driveshaft which drives teh hydro. I don't think there is an issue dricing off flywheel as long as proper direction, it's just the logistics of getting it bolted up.

My Bolens Large frames have a stub shaft that bolts to the Kohler K482 flywheel but I don't think it will bolt up to your Kohler but you might be able to adapt it. My dad made a stub shaft for a Briggs and Stratton that boles to the flywheel. My buddy also made one for one of those chinky- chong engines that bolts to the flywheel to make one of his machines move the correct direction.

Does some one have a picture of an electric pto bolted to the flywheel side of the engine, I cant seem to figure that out.  Thanks, Noel

Ok, had a chance to get a couple of pictures yesterday to show how much room is in from of the engine on the Bush Hog HD-12 and what the blower mount looks like. I think it will work. Hardest part will be making up the bracket and figuring out which electric PTO I need. A PTO shaft won't be too hard to make up depending on how I make the bracket up.

 

Here are the pics:

George, I think the rotation will be the opposite of what you need for that blower.

George, the rotation will be wrong.  The 1655 has the flywheel side running the hydro, while your HD-12 has the flywheel to the front.  You would need to find an opposite rotating gearbox for the snow blower, and move any chain tensioners to opposite side of the chain loop.  If the gearbox on the blower says LF on it, then you need one that says RH or vice-versa.

Use something else for this winter for snow and buy another tractor with the right blower on it in summer!!  No need to re-engineer a product that way!

Well that sucks. Puts a thorn right into the project. For some reason I thought the flywheel side ran the electric PTO on the Massey 1655.

I just need to find a proper blower for my Bush Hog HD-12. Already have a Massey MF12 with the snow blower on it. Just thought it would be nice having that big blower mounted up on the Bush Hog.

I saw in your pictures, that
the K341 has the air breather off a K321 on it.
Am I remembering correctly, that you had some
issues getting that K341 to run correctly when you
installed it?

Back in Nov. when I built my snowblower, I couldn't get

it to run properly with the smaller breather/filter. I put the correct

one on, and all was good.

Thanks Will. 

 

I will try and find the proper air cleaner assembly. I didn't realize it was the wrong one since it was on the engine when I got it. The Kohler runs great though now. The issue with mine was the screw to adjust the points had loosened up just enough for the timing to go out of adjustment.

Is there any way of running the blower from the rear pto or what ever is used for mowing forward ?  I think there are lots of tractors that run a pto from front to back like the tiller on my Jim Dandy , some of the Fords had a shaft running back too . Maybe you could make up something like those to drive the front ?

could you somehow mash a belt pulley ( like an old starter/gen pulley on old motoros) between driveshaft and back of motor, like old SBC pulleys bolted on the balancer, run as belt down and then mount a jack shaft to run a longer driveshaft going out the front....if you want to try to keep this alive.
