I wish I could help with a source for the pulley. Having one, I could provide dimensions if needed.
Thanks for the close-ups of the belt cover; this is the only piece lacking from my setup. They may prove useful as I am contemplating making one. Could I trouble you for the sizes of the "box" area holding belt retainer?
And the search goes on: http://gardentractor...r-pulley-cover/
Sure, no problem at all. Ill go measure it and post on your thread.

If I would of known they were that hard to find I would of kept a couple.
Maybe you could cut up an old Briggs pulley like one of these.I keep all the Keyed engine pulleys that I can find they come in really handy when you need to make an engine pulley.
Cut the big end off of a pulley then Tap the crank for a long bolt and weld a heavy washer to the end of the pulley sleeve.
Yea, I did the same many years ago. Had a handful of them and threw them out. I could do this. I have no problem with cutting up a briggs pulley. They're easier to find but I'm not sure about tapping the crank. Ill have to draw up a picture of what i'd like to make.
EDIT: I was able to find calipers and get a measurement of the crank shaft.
What I don't understand is how the pulley attachment holds onto the crank. The crank has no threads for a bolt. Do I remove the current pulley and then slide on the pulley for the snowblower?
