Countershaft with clutch pulleys

The two clutch pulleys are 2 1/2" wide by 10 1/2" diameter. The shaft is 1 1/4" by 40" long. The 2 1/8" wide cone pulley steps are 9 3/4", 8 1/4", 6 3/4", 5 1/8" in diameter. The height from the base of the hangers to the shaft center is 10".

This item needs restoration before use. One shaft bearing is frozen on the shaft and one of the clutches has a broken internal part requiring welding. The other bearing and the other clutch pulley are working well and the shifting sleeve slides freely. If you enjoy rust removal and a little machining, this can become useful again, The nicely shaped hangers are worth restoration.
