I’m an SS1 owner. Before I found a correct Flathead I purchased a 3.5 and then a 2.5 OHV engine just in case I never found one. Well, I found a Standard 20 HP engine but the front and rear engine mounting plates are not correct since the engine was originally in a Standard, not an SS.
The 2.5 has the correct spacing for the starter, but not the same mounts. My plan is to remove the rear plate from the 2.5 and fill in the rest with Autocad when doing the template.
Enclosed is a picture of the rear of my 2.5 OHV. I have nothing on this era engine for a manual.
Is clutch removal pretty straightforward? Any hints?
Otherwise, I’m just disassembling anything that looks like its in my way.
Not my first rodeo, but thought some of you might have some tips to make it easier?
Sorry about the focus?
