I'm trying to replace the engine on my log splitter. The original engine was an 8HP Tecumseh snowblower engine that has seen better days. I found a replacement today: 8HP Tecumseh snowblower engine, same mounting, same shaft location, same RPM. Only problem is the old one had a 1 inch dia shaft and the new has a 3/4 inch diameter shaft. Any ideas on how best to match up the new engine to the existing coupling?
I understand that they make keyed bushings that increase the diameter, but I haven't been able to locate any such thing. Thanks for your help.
