I did a search to find out. Can't even mention where the info was found - I'd get points assessed just for naming the place.
Anyhow, what I found is the engine is 3.5 times the PTO speed.
Gravely set the governors at 3300 RPM. That gives a PTO speed of 942 RPM
With the governor adjusted to 3600 RPM, your PTO speed will be 1029 RPM
Your answer is [roughly] "1000 RPM PTO"
If it doesn't have any more power than my own mower, a 1967 424 [previous model Gravely - 10 HP Kohler/50 inch deck], its probably lugging along at 750 RPM. I don't mind, its just my trim mower for the tight spots.
Hope that helps. Now I gotta go delete my cookies and history so no one finds out where I been.
