The belt tensioners that bolt to the Tecumseh engines can be replaced easily with the tensioners found on ss and st models that are welded to the bottom of the battery plate. These tensioners allow the use of any engine with a compatible pulley shaft and engine rotation. I try to obtain these from old frames for future swaps of my own.

Below is a picture of a shop made clutch conversion. No, I didn't do it and I don't remember whose picture it is. I may have done the mounting a little differently where it attaches to the tractor frame. I would probably use cold rolled steel and thread the ends only, then weld a sleeve onto the end of the clutch arm where the mount goes through it. That would tend to spread the load better where it pivots on the shaft. I'd probably also put a grease fitting there too.
