If the mower I adapted to my Speedex works out I'll need to come up with a clutch for the drive belt.
Speedex clutched their decks with an idler on the belt. I'd rather put a clutch right on the shaft.
I have an electric clutch I'd hoped to use but the engine shaft needs to protrude well into the clutch to engage the key way. I've only got about 5/8" of shaft exposed.
It looks to me like a Wheel Horse manual PTO clutch might do the trick. Something like these pics:
Would I be correct that this clutch can sit on the end of the shaft like I need?
Can anyone identify the clutch in the pictures? I only need one pulley on it.
