Default Tapered shaft adapter

Anyone know of a source for an adapter so I can install a straight clutch/sprocket onto a tapered crankshaft? I'm trying to go from a stock 1:10 Ezgo taper to a straight comet/hortsman clutch.

the end of the crankshaft is right at 1'' , you might be able to machine the taper off and use it, but you'd have to pull the crankshaft.

An adapter like that is impossible without machining the crank. The 1 inch is smaller than the taper.....


The cpp adapter actually adds material in the form of a straight to taper, you need to do the opposite (go smaller diameter) which you cant do without machining

Just south of Rochester. I think I found a solution. I pulled the center shaft out of a broken clutch. The taper fits the motor. I just need to cut it shorter and turn the other end down to 1 inch. It is hollow so I can bolt it to the crankshaft. Thanks for the help.
