Making belt cover

I replaced my original engine with a Honda GX390. Now the original belt cover does not fit anymore since the Honda crankshaft is higher. I used mine without a cover. The belts get wet. I like to make a new cover for it.

Does anyone have experience making a new belt cover? What material do you use? Sintra? Do you make three pieces (front, center and back) then glue them together? What kind of glue do you use?

If you're a geek consider 3D-printing one

NICE! How about breaking out the old sawzall and whack it across and weld in an extension to get the height you need..... then fill in the areas where you have gaps and voila! If you don't have a welder mock it up with cardboard and then have a shop knock i t out for you. Easy job....




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

Your original cover should work with a bit of modification (bolt it on the top and make small extensions at the bottom). You may have to elongate the mounting holes.
