    I hope this is the right thread if nit please move it mods. Today 10-9-2011, I some broke the woodruffkey behind the drive chain pulley. So I was outside piddling around and got to looking at rider mower carter key [​IMG]

    Uploaded with that holds the deck on. It is just hair smaller then the clutch wood-ruff. I thought WTH so I took and measured the slots it fits so I cut it to size to fit the engine slot [​IMG]

    Uploaded with Then the pulley slips right on as if it belonged. I have been running it all day cant tell the difference but u have get woodruffkey the same diameter as da clutch. My camera broke so I had get pics offline. homegeniousness lol

    I hope that key works and doesn't fail. I had a woodruff key fail on my car's crankshaft and it nearly scored and ruined my car engine's crankshaft. Scarry to think how such a small piece of metal can ruin the engine if it shears.
