Concentric/Haldex Hydraulic Pump Mounting Bracket - 5in.L
Concentric/Haldex Hydraulic Pump Mounting Bracket
This was a perfect match for my 8HP tecumseh. No issues whatsoever. My 13 GPM 2 stage pump which was purchased from Northern also bolted right up. The only way it gets any easier to mount your pump to the motor is to have someone else do the work while you stand and drink a beverage watching them.
Great product, made my day.

Strong, lightweight, and reasonably good quality but...
I mounted it on an 8HP Tecumseh and had to machine off the ridge they molded into the engine side to make it fit. Maybe it matches some engines, but not mine. More annoyingly, the bolt holes on the pump side of this bracket are blocked by the side struts so you can't get a bolt in from that side. On my Haldex pump, you can't get some of the bolts in from the pump side either so on my installation I have two bolts one way, one bolt the other direction, and the fourth had to be a stud with nuts on both sides. Finally, in talking to someone who has used these before, make sure to mount the open side down, or at least to the side. If the open side is mounted facing up, the plastic on the side struts doesn't have enough tensile strength and will develop cracks.
Once it's on, it works fine, but if I had to do it over I would look for a different mounting bracket.

I bought this as a replacement for my logsplitter that I built about 24 years ago. All went well with the installing, am expecting it to last as long as my other one. It's nice and light but seems strong. It seems that all the other reviews went along the same line as what I am saying. So I would definetly recommend it!

Light and easy
The molded bracket replaced an aluminum cone bracket on my older woodsplitter. The new bracket is very light weight and strong. Since it is open wood chips and other debris tends to fall through rather than get caught in the bracket. I found the mouting to be very easy; four bolts to the engine and four bolts ont eh other end to the pump. This bracket is an excellent example of how a molded plastic-like material can save weight and cost.

easy way to go
i bought this item hoping that it would make mating my new honda style motor and pump easer and it did it took about 4.00 dollars from the hard ware store for some harden bolts and nuts and away you go .very easy to use my motor is a 6.5 ohv cranking about 3200-3600 rpm no vibration . a little tip when mounting the pump the bolt head goes on the inside of the bracket leaving more room for the coupling no extra thread or nut to get in the way . my log spliter never worked so well in the six years ive owened it .

I have built two log splitters and I have used these on both of them, They are half the price of others but work just as well. I have one that has been sitting outside for over 5 years uncovered still works great. Be sure to measure the bolt circle before you order.

Hydraulic Pump Mounting Bracket
This Bracket is made of a fiberglass material and seems to last longer than the old cast aluminum, but that remains to be seen the bracket I replaced was the same type both purchased from Northern Tools. This is a mounting bracket for a log splitter engine to pump, other than brackets the log splitter is doing fine it's 24 years old purchased from Northern Hydraulic's.

This part was not as advertized and we threw it away. It was well made but did
not even come close to fitting to the motor it was suppose to mate up too.
