Default Flywheel Question

I have 4hp Fairbanks-Morse T. One flywheel was previously repaired and welded. I want to replace it as it vibrates and shakes the engine. I got a set of Flywheels off a Z but the shaft size is 1/4" larger than the T. What can I do to get it to fit?

Bill, have a machine shop (or somebody you may know with a metal lathe) build you a couple bushings with an I.D. the same diameter as the shaft on the "T" and an O.D. the inside diameter of the "Z" flywheels. Depending on how the flywheels are keyed or fixed, you may have to cut a slot in the bushings for say a gib key if that's what is used. Be sure the bushings are a minimum of the same width as the hubs on the "Z" flywheels. I think you have the right idea to get the "repaired" flywheel off of there before something regretable happens. Good luck.
