Hi and welcome to the Stak!

If you can't find an original clutch pulley (they may not have been available for an engine that small) you can use an idler pulley on the slack side of the belt.

Hmmm.... Maybe because you're running an ice cream freezer, you should break the usual rule on belt clutches and put the idler pulley on the tight side of the belt. That way, by varying the force on the idler, you can adjust when the belt will start slipping when the ice cream is ready.

Make mine chocolate chip with big chunks of dark chocolate.

Good luck!

They are very proud of those. I wanted to make something myself but was trying to get some ideas.
Thanks
