I have three partial Victa full crank engines I am taking to scrap and wanted to see if I could fully separate the aluminium crankcase from the rest. It took a bit of work but I got there. Is it worth it,? Probably not, but it was interesting to see what it takes.
There's one left to take apart.

One was siezed and took a few blows with a hammer to get off after soaking with penetrant, destroying it in the process. The other is a 125 G4 barrel. I'll try to save the third one which is a 160.

What model mower/engine was the crankshaft with the tapered sleeve still in place?

Mark 4 160 from the 70s. No idea what mower it was on as I bought the partial motor to get the cooling fan off it.
