Get at it! I'm interested to see what you come up with a drivetrain with that big opposed twin and a tranny in there.

Anyone know of a way to make an educated guess on spring sizing? I whatever been pondering my clutch setup and am kind of lost choosing a tension spring.

I'm not sure if you were now designing a belt tensioner or now moved on to a power king style clutch. If it's a belt tensioner, I'd go as heavy as will fit in your space. You can always apply less tension (through a heavy spring), by moving it's attachment point closer to the fulcrum (pivot point) of the tensioner. But you can't make a weak spring heavier.

This is a good point.

I'm still on the path of a t-handle style clutch off the shifter arm.

If this idea fails a foot style clutch and linkage will be in order.

Finally got some time to mess around with the tractor. :ph34r:

Also found some original paint color!

Engine, drive shaft, cover have been removed. Didn't get a chance to test fit the new engine.

Also my steering right angle box arrived. It's a bit larger than expected. (that's what she said)

Forum is a bit slow lately.

My transmission will be here tomorrow! I believe this will give me almost everything I need to start driveline mockup.

Yeah, congrats on the speedex tranny. That's one of the 3-speeds, right? i hope you can make that steering gearbox work.

Yes it is the 3 speed. Comes with the keyway input shaft, and a gear on the back.
