Interesting note on the deepco... It has a keyway, and a "set"screw impinging on the keystock... but yeah... it looks like its been there awhile (I'd probably take it down to a driveline shop if I needed to get it off). Pillow bearings feel OK.. no way I can see to grease them (probably a good thing), so I'll run 'em (and the chains) and see what happens. All I need now is the drive sheave (and maybe some brakes) :)
Thanks all for the help & suggestions,,,

And.... Murphy rears its ugly head (argh.....)
Center to Center of the shafts is 15" I've got some adjustment here... but all the 3/4" belts are too short (I'm only seeing about a foot maximum). Cant raise engine up far enough (gas tank muffler air-cleaner get in the way) Seems I have to go to a 7/8 belt (comet 40/44?) in order to get the correct belt length (which I guess means pressing off the bearings and old sheave and...)... d'mit

How?? to remove shaft bearings?

OK... so how does one remove the bearing? Hole in "cap" at end of shaft.. spanner wrench, thread on/off? R/H or L/H thread?? or ???
Thanks

The 4 rivets hold the bearing in. Not normally removed. Take the lock collar off, loosen setscrew, and then the bearing should slide off the shaft.

OK... I see the other end of the shaft has a collar has a set-screw ... on each end of the other shaft..... I'm thinking this one (by the driven sheave) has been lost. Still at a loss as how to remove bearing and then sheave. Picture (above) shows what I have... collar with 2 holes, but no threads in holes (did the set screw go down through one of these holes from the collar with the set screw? And in that case, why didn't they just thread THAT collar and set screw it?

Thanks

First... I have no idea what model.... Its square in back with the tubing just sticking out (one page says its a 675, another it looks like a 403)... Not a shaft drive, chain drive to rear wheel and another shorter chain, and a belt sheave
I just want to rebuild it well enough to haul game. It has no engine and that one jackshaft with the chain to the rear wheel and a big sheave on the other end.
Looking at pictures up here, it appears I am missing a few more "parts" than the engine. Has anyone coupled up one of these "symmetrical" torque converter units up to a goat? (and is this the way to go) Or.... could some one steer me to some still available drive train parts (I assume what I am missing here is some sort of variable belt drive).
I don't care about "restoring" (keeping it original) as much as making it useable.
thanks
Photos would help...

Your drive clutch on the motor is correct for an earlier model B. It is a Salsbury 400 clutch. It looks like someone has extended the shaft and added another bearing on the outside of the clutch. This added bearing would not allow you to move the motor forward or back to adjust belt tension.
