Hey guys. I need to check back in. There is a flurry of activity. It is a LGT 145 Hydro.
I was asking if I could overdrive the pump by cutting the driveshaft from the motor to the eaton, and installing a gearbox in there. Looks like there would be room for something in there. But if it hurts the pump, I will not overdrive it. By the way this hydro is louder than I expected under load. Exp at lower RPM.
It does have a high low selector, which I do not understand how it works.
It would be nice to cruise a bit faster between my house and the neighbors.
My main hobby is working on vintage inline 6 mercury outboards. The ford just moves them around for me :) It was pretty rough when I got it from my brother. Valves stuck, gas tank rusted out, carb barely salvageable. Even the float was half eaten away. thank god for ebay.
I did think of getting 26 tires for it. Not a big deal, just thinking around this box.
On another note I replaced the fluid with the NewHolland 134g( I think its called that)and put a new wix filter on the screw off remote mount. The new filter vibrates enough on the motor that it leaks . Strange? the old one did not and its the same part #. I even noticed the bypass valve had ruptured inside the new wix. I can get the part number if you need it.
I dont have a clue of what you mean by installing a gearbox on the engine to hydro drive shaft? Would you do that to a car/truck?and on a hydro transmission how in the world would you then transfer power to the rearend, by reverse osmosis? LOL
edited, Sorry I forgot the LOL, I was just trying to ask you how you were going to accomplish this, didn't mean to insult you
