Predator 8hp, need to find 1" ID pulleys

I have a agway (Murray) 27inch blower that had a Tecumseh 8hp on it and it threw a rod so I want to put a predator on it. The predator engine has a 1 inch shaft and the old Tecumseh has a 3/4 shaft so I need to find some pulleys for a 1 inch shaft. The old one had 2 split pulleys on it. Does anyone know where to get some pulleys for a 1inch shaft or know of a blower with that pulley that I can order

I'm going to look there but i was hoping to get one of the oem ones from a bigger blower. The original ones are pretty small

Welcome to the forum Mike


You could take them to a machine shop and have them drilled/bored out to fit.

Spend some time tracking down OEM ones that fit a 1" shaft. Just a matter of looking them up one by one.

MFG supply Snowmobile Parts, Go Kart Parts, Lawnmower Parts, ATV Parts, and more | MFG Supply
OMB Whse. https://www.ombwarehouse.com/All-Oth...owblower-Parts

Or go with the 6.5HP Predator that has a 3/4" shaft
6.5 HP (212cc) OHV Horizontal Shaft Gas Engine EPA
Doubt you'd notice a difference with power as the 6.5 is a common replacement for a slightly bigger engine with good results.

Thanks for the info I was going to go with the 6.5 but Leary about it . It's going to be used in northern vt that gets a lot of deep snow and snow shoveled from a roof so I'm I dunno if it would be a good choice for me seems like the majority say 26inch blower is max for the 6.5 and is really working it in big snow what are your thoughts on that

I think you'd be ok with the 6.5 as no one who's put one on a blower has ever posted a complaint. It should replace the 8 horse and give you nearly if not the same performance due to it's improved design (overhead valve). I think it'd work as well on your 27" as the 8hp Tec did.


My machine, I'd go with the 8 horse and try to find a 1" pulley/sheve that's a tad bigger in diameter to boost the impeller speed a little to help it toss a bit further. But get the same diameter as stock for the transmission one. I like having a big engine but that's not because of need, just a "Tim Taylor" thing.

I have the tool man mentality to bigger is always better. I'm going to measure the pulleys when I get home and see what I can come up with for sizes I would need

I just did a 212cc 6.5hp predator Hemi version engine install on a little 24 inch MTD blower. I also did a impeller up grade and I was really impressed when we got 10.5 inches of snow a couple weeks ago with 2 inches of slush under the snow in the driveway. I was throwing the snow a good 30 feet even the slush was going that far. I can't see 3 inches more in width requiring more than that 6.5hp.
