It looks like the black 5 hp engine is shorter then the red 5 hp engine, when they was in the frame. Are they both the same height when put next to each other?

Oh Ohh Ohhhh... I see whats going on. I had to look closer, but there is a 1in spacer under the orange one. I dont think it was sitting flat on the mounting plate because of the tank.

Did they make tall and short block engines?

Anywho, heres my latest addition...

hrrggk.


So I made this belt guide for my st/10. There is supposed to be a guide thats bolts to the transaxle... I forgot to bolt it on, before I started putting this thing together. Itd be a pain to disassemble and bolt the proper unit on soooo....

Yah, Briggs made tall and short deck 5 hp motors. The short deck ones are on the push mowers and are vertical shaft engines, that I've built up. But never really seen a short deck 5 hp with a horizontal shaft yet.

The engine block with a short deck means the piston while going up and down in the cylinder, will be moving faster, in turn gives more torque. Because the piston rod is shorter.

Hey there's the Purnurple tractor! Haha. Is that pile of parts the new project or is that combining with the purple one?

That would be cool. Would you actually try to race it in a league? Or just fun in the backyard?

yeah, its gona be pretty low I think. It will need a skid plate.

As for speed... Im not sure, either something reasonable... 20-25?, or Im gona do something silly and gear it high... 30-35... 45... Some sort of craftsman... and more! - Page 5 2664539216

I think I like the idea of 25-ish.

Yeah, a skidplate or two would be a good idea. Are you gonna change the shape of the shifter? Looks like it would hit the steering wheel maybe.

Oh yeah, it would hit the dash as it is now. Ill either bend it so it doesnt hit, or possibly just make one.

I have one of those gearboxes, it has a plate bolted to the side of it that holds the shifter 90* to the left so you can actually shift it easily. Has a stripped gear tho so I can't use it.

Anyone know of anyone running a centrifugal clutch on their vertical shaft engines? I am concerned I might not have much room under this thing...

I know there will be a bit more wear and tear on the clutch, but thats ok. Some sort of craftsman... and more! - Page 5 2664539216


Ill still try to build a clutch in there... I just dont want a bunch of stuff hanging down under it... its going to be low enough as it is now.

Ive considered trying a torque converter setup... you would be hard pressed finding a centrifugal clutch that will hold up to the HP and stresses in a lawnmower I think ( I think Thunder Divine put TC in his 90mph mini deere)
