Still don't know what your trying to do. are you building a go kart or a something to pull with?
Looking for a low$ back yard basher. I started bending the frame and it looked like a gokart. Not what I was after. I was wanting to keep this a cheap build that anybody could do, but after figuring the speed and the limitations on pulley size, I dug out some old spare parts. I think LT transaxles would work better and cheaper/ easier to source than axles and bearing blocks, then figure out a braking system. I had a few F/N/R transaxles laying around, but they are prone to axle housings breaking if abused. I also had a Peerless 700, but that goes back to the axle/ bearing thing, plus adding chain and sprockets. I settled on a hydro. The lt axles will narrow the foot print, but it resembles a pulling tractor a little more with the small scale rear tires.
The tiller tires will be here tomorrow, so I can get a better idea of what the finished product will look like. I cant start on the frame until I know where the inside of the tires will be.
