I bought a L M 2000 that was electric power, the owner bought the mill without power from Norwood.

I'm Repowering this mill but the book does not give me the information I need.

I think I will buy a 24 HP Honda and see that the Honda engine has a tapered (non keyed) shaft.

I want to match up the clutch to the correct V-belt size and need the  correct diameter pulley.

I will measure the belt that came with LM 2000 for match up.  I know the shaft output is 3,600 RPM for 23 HP Briggs engine. 

What is the Shaft OD size ____ for Briggs Eng, I'd like to know this... if I did not go with Honda power.

 Avery,

Here are some pictures of the drive belt, pully system for my Honda 20HP on my LM2000. The same set up would also be on the 23 Briggs.  I suppose you know that the saw blade travels on the main drive belt and an idler pulley is used for adjustment. Works OK. The clutch, pulley on the newer models is 5 inch and the drive belt is 83 inches. The number for a Goodyear belt is 5VX830. The 20 HP Honda runs great and I have had no problems with any part of it. I've had it less than a year but run it enough to give it a good try-out. You mentioned in another post that you could not find a data
plate. The only data plate on it is a serial number under the motor mount. (The shaft size on the engine-clutch pully is one inch)

You gave me exactly what I needed and pictures to boot.

The LM 2000 I bought is a 2001 year model.  It has the motor base plate and adjustment pulley. Now that I have the belt size & I know what clutch size (5 inch) pulley to buy.

If will go with Honda power, 24 HP for $ 899.95, then I need to find the correct centrifucal clutch to mate up to it's engine shaft.

I read in the add that this Honda 24 HP had a taper shaft.  I expect ... that's why the price is so good.  I will call for the measurement of the  Honda output shaft.

Worst case, I can make an adapter to up-size to straight shaft clutch.. say 1 1/8 Dia. with 1/4 inch keyway slot. However, why re-design the wheel...  it when I can buy it off the shelf.

Again, Thank's for Information.
