Default Witte Drag Saw Pieces

I recently picked up a Witte B Drag saw engine with what appears to be an earlier headless Witte Drag saw Cart. How they ended up together is beyond me, but the engine doesn't fit the bolt hole locations in the cart so they definitely aren't for one another.

I'm missing most of the clutch assembly, and the only piece I have I think may be for the headless version. It appears the Clutch used on the later B engines are different.

How long should the shaft be for the engine where the clutch would go. Looking at pictures of other drag saw engines, it looks like the shaft where the clutch would be should be twice as long as what I have. Mine doesn't appear to be cut off but i'm not sure.

I'm going to attach a picture of it so that you can see what I have. The engine is just sitting on the cart so I could see if I could make it work. I was thinking if I could get a Clutch for it I may put it together even though it doesn't go together.

Probably has been a very long time since the engine ran but it basically fired right up after some clean up and lubrication.

Mine is 2.5" past the face of the gear. That's where the "throw out bearing" rides.

ok, that settles that. There isn't any shaft sticking out with the gear thing I have in place.
