    I am going to mount a 3.5 hp Tecumseh on a beach cruiser. I have the belt centrifugal clutch and rear wheel belt sheave. What I need is interim pulley bracket set up that is between the clutch and the sheave. Does any one sell such a setup? Or know where I can find one? Basically it is two pulleys on a bracket.

    Sounds like a basic jackshaft setup. Some of the go kart websites offer them for sale at a reasoable price. I would also check out ebay.

    I have a 2 cycle tecumseh and sooner or later I will put it on something. So will be following this thread. Don't be cheap with your progress photos, as we all are open to good ideas!

    intermediate pulleys

    Thanks for the response, but this is not a jack shaft scenario. Please read the post. Thanks

    What you describe IS a jackshaft set-up. Any intermediate shaft is a jackshaft.

    If it works like a jackshaft, sounds like a jack shaft, well I guess that we can call it what ever you like!

    Check in the Whizzer department. Their parts might work for you.
