1969 Moto Boy Clutch

Posting for my 75 yr old father who is looking for a 3/4 inch 8 tooth centrifugal clutch for his 1969 Moto Boy with a Koehler K141#T engine. We believe the clutch was originally made by Richmond. Any direction as to where we might find a replacement would be appreciated.

You sure aren't asking for an easy one are you Any chance it's a Moto Mower brand ?? I can't find anything for Moto Boy. Maybe posting a photo of the machine and the clutch itself might be helpful.
Do you know what pitch and chain # it uses ??
I don't have much experience with centrifugal clutches but in doing a few google searches all I'm finding is 10T (tooth) or more 3/4" bore clutches. Maybe someone else knows where to look all I can suggest is doing a search and contacting different companies to see what they say and if they don't have one if they might direct you to someone who does.

Seeing that it's getting close to 50 years old and it's not a common brand it might be one of those things where you'd also ask if it might be possible for them to rebuild yours.

Thanks for the welcome Kiss4aFrog!

You are right, a 3/4 8 tooth centrifugal clutch is a bit unusual but I'm sure SBF members are up to the challenge.

We live in Newfoundland, Canadaand after a web search I'm thinking that Moto Boy may have possibly been the Canadian version of Moto Mower as the blower is the monster looking Snow Shark with dual augers. My father is a hour drive away and isn't internet savvy so I'll post some pics after my next visit. I do believe the pitch is 1/2 inch and it uses a #60 chain.

Dad is a retired auto mechanic and bought the machine in the late 70's - early 80's. He used it a couple of times before the clutch went and pushed it to the back of the shed until he found the time to work on it. Some 30 years later and 10 years into retirement he's finally getting to it. The old Kohler engine works like a charm and now we just need to track down a clutch.
