Default another dumb jack shaft question

gotta 7/8", 3/16 keyed shaft, putting on 3/16" keyed sprocket and 3/16" keyed torque converter driven clutch, this shaft will slide into two 7/8" bore bearings, sprocket on one side and tc driven clutch on other, here is my question..... do i need to collar them?

also, am i redundant when i say "torque converter driven clutch"?
thanks for tolerating my ignorance

dave

depends.. if there is lateral play,
then yes, use locking collars to remove all lateral movement.

If there isn't any lateral movement and the bearnings themselves are locking onto the shaft
(so it can't possibly slide out) there's not real reason no.

No it's not redundand, it's slightly incorrect though
the Torque Converter is all (the two pulleys and the belt)
which of the pulley you mount to a jackshaft is fairly obvious for many, yes;
but for people new to karting and the concept of TCs it's an additional information
they might need one fine day
The problem is, it's NOT a clutch it's a variable pulley.. the CLUTCH is in the front (driver pulley)

So you could say driver clutch, but driven clutch would be ever so slightly off
driven pulley would be the term you are looking for
but since that's a mistake even karting websites make.. we don't care much

itsid, you've been a great deal of help for me, this is my first go kart and am really having fun with this build, i believe i have too much motor for this kart however i want to complete this kart and play with it then maybe put in harbor freight motor maybe, the 440 kohler is a great motor and will be valuable as a back up on my track vehicle
thanks again dave

Careful with that Kohler.
You could screw up your frame if your not careful.
