My friend's dad has a machine shop. I'll see what he can do.

I like this Idea, not from a practical standpoint, but Ive always liked the Idea of portal axles. to get gears that will hold up you need to use the final drive gears, not the smaller gears used for speed selection. final drive gears out of a wheel horse or sears garden tractor would make a good choice.

So use the bull gear and whatever the gear that rotates it is called?

If you get them custom made, you could get them so that bearings can be press fit into the center. Then you wouldnt have to have live shafts and could use bolts or solid shafts through the case.

I'm not quite following what you're saying. In my mind I would still need a shaft on the top for the top gear and a shaft for the bottom gear, or sprockets if I go chain. I would need a couple bearings to support each gear/sprocket. Those bearings, in my mind, would fit into the housing so that the shafts could slide in and out as I needed to do maintenance.

Nothing is really set yet, but I may go with two or three. I still might go with chain. I'm not really sure. It all depends on how deep I wanna get into it, I guess.
