    Clutch for Briggs and Stratton

    Hi, I have a B&S vanguard v-twin (14 hp) and I was wondering if the Comet 94C clutch would work on it. I believe it is a 1-3/16 belt width. So my question is: Is it ok to use this driver clutch on my size engine? Do I need something bigger or smaller or is it just fine?
