Putting a 16hp single on 2 stage

Just like it says....for some reason im obsessed with snowblowers....i was going to attempt anyway to put a predator 670cc(22hp) v twin on one of my ariens...its a an 8/24...just wondering what if any mods need to be done...i believe the hsmk 80 motor has a 1 inch shaft just like the 22hp...i have the engine sitting around and the idea just dawned on me...im just wondering if ill need to get bigger pulleys or if anyones ever built a modified one what was their thoughts?
Thanx

That sounds pretty awesome Though I'd want to use a wider bucket if trying an engine that big.

I had an 824, now I have a 1024 Pro. I observed the 10hp engine bogging under heavy loads, but at the end of the season, I discovered that the governor was not actually opening the throttle all the way, even when the RPM dropped by 500 to 3100.

I replaced the governor spring, it held RPM better during some testing at the end of this season. I'll see how it performs next year. But with the governor working better, it did a better job of making use of the engine's available power. I still couldn't make the throttle plate open fully, even driving into 24" of wet snow.

Which makes me wonder how much of a benefit you'd see by going to 20hp, with a 24" bucket. It would offer more if you went to a larger engine pulley, of course, speeding up the auger and impeller. But you have to be mindful of overworking them.

Welcome to SBF SNOWJOB1125, I'm in CT.
As stated on a prior post, Geno built one with a large engine, I think he'll be the best member of the forum to guide you thru the process.
I have an HSMK80 engine and it has a 3/4" shaft, if that is the case you will need new pulleys (I'd go slightly larger on the auger pulley to increase the impeller tip speed). I would think that the crankshaft would seat higher on the 22HP engine, if that is the case you will need longer belts (if possible I would increase the width of the belt). You may have to change the engine to frame mounting hardware. You may have to find or build a larger belt cover. You may have to reinforce your driveshaft bearings or bushings. You may have to modify the chute control.
Keep us posted as your project comes along (it is always good to post pictures).

With a 22hp V twin I would find a nice machine with a 32+ inch wide bucket or larger. Anything smaller would be a waste of all that power
