Sounds like you got it all figured out...are you going to make videos and post them to youtube? Some of us like to watch builds, some are satisfied with pictures...

sounds like a deal to me...have you have it a look over? I try to avoid money pits. Meaning if you might have to spend a lot of cash to fix it, it might not be worth it. Send pics of before and after!

Well you very well know the value of a good 700! plenty of people on this forum would gladly make an offer..lol!

I have a hydrostatic I could sell, but no one wants those! No

Jackshafts are used for many different reasons, It really doesnt matter on the stress factor I dont think..
Use one if things dont "line up" or sometimes people make several size ratios on the jack shaft and keep one size on the axle, that way you only have to exchange jackshafts to get different driving conditions..(that make sense?)
For the most part, most racing mowers ive seen have a tiny gear on the output drive running to a big gear on the axle..Only in a few set ups have I seen them use a jack shaft..

Check this out

http://www.rbracing-rsr.com/gearspeed.html

Its set up for bikes, but just entering "1" for all the gear ratios, and primary and secondary sprockets it will help you figure out top speed.

If you have a geared transmission and know the ratios it will tell you speed in each gear.

What is your engine size and brand? or throw me a model number

What is your front gear sproket teeth #?
And what is the one on the axle?

and you said your pulleys are going to be 1:1 right?
and no jack shaft? so that is 1:1

All you need now is the size of your tire...and to get that you need to measure the circumference ( all the way around)

actually the formula calls for the diameter of the rear tire. Jack up the tractor, and measure the tire form the bottom to top. Use that number in the equation. Circumfrence is the diameter x 3.1416 (pi)

The software is merely a script that does a mathematical calculation. If you don't know what it is, and just need a basic number to work off of, then enter 1 for anything you don't know.





Growth rate is dependent on the tire you have . Turf tires won't grow enough to be worried about. ATV tires will grow in diameter (circumfrence as well) as the speed increases and centrifugal force stretches the tire. Calculate at 1.15 for atv tires, 1 for turf/AG tires

If I did it right, you would be looking at 24mph @ 2300rpm and 40.5mph@3800RPM

I dont know what your engine has for RPMs..so I did both...this is also taking into account the calculator works for this application..and if Im doing it right.. What a Face

For the above equation to be right you would have to assume the transaxle is a 1:1 ratio in high gear.
