Have an S-14h with the Vickers, how big of a motor can that trans handle? Is it as strong as the sunstrand?

Would hp matter, as long as you're keeping input speed the same?  I know Simplicity used the same Vickers pump on some of their hydro's, and used 12-16hp engines without issue.  They are thought of as bulletproof, but early ones are prone to a pintle shaft leak over time.

Simplicity used them 69-73ish. Most 69 & 70s leak, or have been repaired.

I believe the Ariens tractors used the T66Z variant, the shaft issue was fixed by the time those came out.
