OTHER ENGINE MODELS: Without physically seeing and measuring your engine, we cannot guarantee this kit will fit your application.  If your engine is not listed above, you will need to consult the engine manufacturer, or take some measurements of your engine to ensure it meets the following requirements;

Engine requirements

  • The engine must have a horizontal output shaft. (Vertical shaft engines will not work with this kit.)
  • The output shaft must be a straight (non-tapered & non-threaded) shaft with a keyway.  (Tapered shaft engines will not work with this kit.)

NOTE: Engines with gear reduction are not compatible with this kit.
