I've got this photo tach that has worked real well on my other engines. I went to use it on the Ingersoll. The flywheel screen is covered by the shroud. The only thing available is the pto and it has to be on to check that end, which slows the engine down an unknown amount with the mower in gear. I even checked the flywheel shroud/engine cover in hopes there might be some kind of removeable plate. Nope!.

With the throttle lever in the rabbit position, I can tell from here it's running W-AO.

What if you remove the deck drive belt. That way there is no load on the engine when the pto is engaged.

Would that be W-AO at 2800 or at 4000? Would turtle be 850 or 1100?

You should be able to stick tape right on the curve of washer on front of elec pto. The pto does not need to be on center is crankshaft.

Silly me! It finally occurred to my little brain to take the grille off the right side of the steering tower and reach in to put the tape on the stub shaft coming off the flywheel.

Eastman turned over its parts distribution to CPD (Central Parts Distributors) a while back. This has resulted in cheaper parts, some substantially. Belts are now half of what they used to be. Many previously unavailable parts are now being reproduced again. Eastman is no longer in business and is for sale. All of their production equipment and machinery now sits somewhere in trailers hoping to find a buyer (not likely). Owner has had major health problems for years which eventually lead to the demise of his business. I too would recommend Brian Hildreth for parts. Great person to deal with.His website: https://salempwr.com/
For used parts and accessories I would contact Dan Haas at: (810) 348-6311 I've never purchased from him myself, but have heard good things from many people.

On a side note, I believe the factory blades are noticeably thicker and heavier than aftermarket blades. Also the belts are 5/8" wide and top quality. Not a real common width. 1/2" or 3/4" will not fit the pulley grooves properly and may fail prematurely.

Thanks! I need a crank handle for a SB48 Ingersoll snow caster.

He has what may be the largest collection of Case/Ingersoll tractors and parts anywhere. Here is his Craigslist ad. I have no idea where he gets them all.

You may also try a gentleman named Brett. He also has a very large collection which is very well organized. I have had no personal dealings with either.
