Wow George, you need to get that fixed. It sure has a lot of wear on it.

 

Yeah, that's nasty.

So, the option would be what? Engine tear down,  weld up and machine it

back to spec?

I happened to be out in garage, measured shaft on my B48M, 18 HP onan-  1 1/8" ,

Daniel was right :wallbanging:

:poke:  :thumbs:

My B48G is 1-7/16" along with the B43. Haven't measured the P220 as yet, but it has an electric clutch on it.

If I were taking it apart, i'd just replace the crank with low hour used.

Or? why not turn it down, and put a smaller ID clutch on it. Something

more common and less expensive.

If it runs really good and doesn't need to be tore down, I might take a good file to it with it running and get it trued up. Then get a bushing turned for it and use a tall key, as long as it fits the shaft tight it will last forever.

That's a possible too, but looking closely at that picture, there won't be much of the keyway

left, by the time it gets cleaned up to the diameter at the front of that groove. Like you say, that

key and bushing will have to be a good tight fit, or it won't be a good thing.

I don't plan on tearing the motor down. I will swap it out and repower with something else before I did that. It does run good though and it would suck to see it go. I was thinking about attempting to build it up myself with the welder and take my time cleaning it up. I could have the engine running and true it up with a file but not sure how it would turn out with the motor vibration.

 

Worse case scenario I can do like Daniel mentioned and get a taper lock pulley which would basically avoid the worn area.

So is my idea too far fetched or could it possibly work?

George, it can be done for sure.  If it were me, I'd build it up, then run the engine while CAREFULLY run an angle grinder to take it down close to spec, then maybe finish with a file.  I am known to do things that aren't so safe sometimes, so take it very slow & again....careful!

Use a piece of Copper key stock in the keyway and it will be like new in the keyway. And do use a angle grinder to get it close and then file it to size.
