PostSubject: Belt horizontal to vertical mod?   Sat Jan 25, 2014 11:55 pm

Hello I am back and building a monster mower out of a simple craftsnman (Youtube Link below). I was just wondering.. I want to build it right with a really tough rearend. I have thought about shaft driven rearends but I do not think with the angles off of the engine to it it would be a good idea. I am having a tough time finding an 820 transaxle so I got in to thinking about some kind of simple mod that I can put on that would allow me to run a john deere peerless or craftsman hi low rearend as they are vertical shaft. are there any mods out there or anything I could find?

You just twist it. The manufactureres do the same.

I will have to run new pullies and such. I was wondering if there was a part or module or something that had a gear inside it to convert it?

A RAGB right angle gear box. Or Thunderdivine is right you can just twist it or run a horizontal shaft engine

Run one of these with a stock pulley then run a separate one to a really heavy duty rearend. What do you guys think? Put a pulley on each side..

I guess what I am wondering is would this stand up to the abuse?
