Thank you Cari and bkay. I too have not had a top mounted motor in my hand. Or on my bench. It does appear to be a bit twisted and I would have flagged that on a belt machine, because it would wear faster. I don't know that the driving ability is greatly lessened by the angle.

Opalstar, Was the photo taken before or after you took the motor off?
There could be a couple more of the plastic washers ( spacers?) missing. I am getting quite puzzled.
Have you purchaed a new drive wheel?

Anbody else have a top pivot motor like this??

My farmer background is wondering about using a 5" C clamp to hold it tighter. Rubber padding , of ourse, so it wouldn't scrath paint. Bad Leon.
