PTO shaft diameter, length, height, keyway on the two engines are both the exact same, however, the difference is the shaft end tapped which on the 420cc it's 3/8" 24UNF and on 301cc it's 7/16" 20UNF.
That makes no sense at all.  The bigger engine uses a smaller connection?

With HF I would question it I bet you will find out it is metric.

I wonder how hard it would be to find a new clutch to fit if the one I have won't fit the new engine....hmmm

Will definitely do that then!  For 300+bushings to double my power seems like a no brainer

It would probably be easy enough to drill and tap the shaft if it was needed.

I still have my HF mill, it still works great.
I haven't had much time to use it because I closed my business, retired, bought 10 acres and moved 50 miles from where I was living and have been remodeling a 4 bedroom house.
I got some pine logs a year ago but they were poor quality, too many limbs but I cut them up just for fun.  :)
