Hi guys i have been building a EZGO Shuttle 6 for my son. It has 12" front lift jakes long travel a-arm and spindle. Custom rear 3 link with coilovers and vegas carts cradle for 23 hp briggs. it sits on 29.5 swamp lite tires. Im ready to pull trigger on engine and figured why not the 35 hp vanguard. Has anyone done this swap or know of anybody? I'm looking for some advise. Thank you Rocco

As far as the 35 HP Briggs goes engine there's a few threads out here from guys that have used them. Once member @Nubs sees your post I'm sure he can help you out with the information you'll need on the engine.

Thanks for pics. Now I know it will fit. Do you happen to know shaft size and what clutch you used? I see I can get a 1 1/8 by 4 and maybe have my commit clutch bored to 1 1/8 from 1 Thank you for your help

I believe the 35 HP Briggs Vanguard has a 1-1/8” diameter shaft and a .1/4” keyway or a 1 7/16" shaft depending on the model.

Sorry lot goin' on here with winter commin and all.
The one in the picture had a generator tapered PTO that i turned down to 1", the clutch was a factory EZGO. turned a tapered bushing to fit the two.

HRC is right on with the PTO Dia. i've had a few 40hp with 1-1/2 also
