Okay, now I'm confused.  I thought you were using a 700 peerless at some point, but don't see that in the thread.  Using the transaxle as a transmission will be tricky, as Doc pointed out.  I don't know if it will handle the stress if you drive it with one axle, and lock it.

And then I see you want to mow with it?  And do 65,  and do haspin, and spend who knows how much?  I put countless hours of experience, planing, building, and lots of money, just to have a reliable race/offroad mower, that does 45.  

This is beginning to sound like a what if thread.  What exactly do you want it to do, and what parts do you have?

i dont know where the thing about the tranny came from.

ok, heres the plan, new and updated. ford frame, reinforced, with a 18hp v twin im not sure im getting it yet but thats the plan other wise im using my 16hp opposy, 7in pully on the engine, going to a 3.5in on the rear, rear end will be a 3/5 speed peerless 700, using #40 chain, 12 tooth sprocket onv tranny to a 45ish for a 3 speed, 16 to 60ish for 5 speed, going to a 1 1/4in chromly axle with high speed bearings off bmi carts, see pic, with 4x4 hubs to 4x4 tires with 18in turfs, for the front will be your front end edited a bit, with direct steer, 3/4in axles and 3 bolt high speed hubs with rims and 13in tire, and breaks are going to be mechanical with a 8in disc. thats all i got so far, lots to do before i need to worry more
Before you get all "calculatered out"... You might want to wait and see what you get. I see that you have theoretical pulley sizes selected, and theoretical sprocket selections based on whether you get a 3spd or 5spd 700. Stop and take a breath.

The Peerless 700 is available commonly in 3,4, and 5 speed configurations, and some documentation I found suggests a rare 2 speed. The high ratio can vary, and it does NOT necessarily depend on how many gears it has- so don't plan your sprockets until you have a 700 in hand- you never know what you're going to get! (I'm writing an article on the 700. I SHOULD finish...)

I have found no suggestion ANYWHERE that a 6-speed 700 was ever made. And I have a lot of documentation. Six gearsets will certainly not fit in a standard 700 casing, either. So- I got no idea where you got that... Got a link or something?

If you're somewhat creative (and you HAVE to be, to live here at ATLTF, LOL) you might be able to come up with some temporary workarounds until you source the right parts. I made an air filter from a tuna can once (can link you if you want to see the example) and the Twin carbs have a great surface to work with. As for the head shroud- I personally would not run without it, as that head will get hot, but you might be able to throw together some sheetmetal to direct the air through the cooling fins.

Don't see anything wrong, just dirty. Clean, new gaskets, plugs, and run.
