The de facto standard for this hobby is a shaft that's 3/4" diameter and about 2 1/2" long in order to mount centrifugal clutches or a torque converter (TAV), although there are ($$$) options if you have a 1" diameter shaft.

All these small engine carburetors eventually get ruined by neglect, water in the fuel, by stale fuel residues and by ethanol in the gasoline which draws moisture out of the air and contaminates the fuel over time.

I have cleaned more than a few carbs that were otherwise junk. Rewarding work.
