i recently acquired a yard machine with a vari drive in it and im thinking about putting a 6 speed transaxle in it so then it will have a 42 speed tractor it will be un-pully swapped and im looking for any tips/estaments on the top speed if i get enough interest in it i will build it, so any help would be greatly appreciated (i got the idea from fearless front + i don't have know if anyone has done it before)

Ya with the vari drive there's only f-n-r so I should figure out the ratio of the transaxle I think its probably the same as the 6-speed in 6th gear It should have alot of speed ranges

Now what I'm wondering is, does the vari drive act like a governor/torque converter like if you go uphill

I don't think so on second thought because it works by clutch movement and belt tension

We just aquired an MTD aswell for an Engine project, but I see this MTD is different from the others I've seen on here. This one have the F-N-R on the left side rearfender and the speed vari shifter on the dash? (I think).
