Would the parts list from the equipment manufacturer tell? IE Deere will list the info.

Here is a link that might be useful: KAW info

RE: pto bolt

Measure the hole with an inside caliper.
It 'might' be metric. For length, use
a straight edge ruler.

RE: pto bolt

Does Deere not list the size? I can't think that Deere's bolt price would be prohibitive if you had to go that way. It is an important bolt. And may I add sometimes a pain should you break one. Common crank bolt diameter would be either 7/16 -20 or M 10 -1.5. Best grade would be either an 8 or 10.9 . I would think that size of an engine wouldn't be a 3/8 -24. Use some blue loctite upon install.
