Hi all. I have the chance to buy a Sears Custom 8 garden tractor. No engine but it is a good rolling chassis. I have a kinda neat idea for the drive system but I am not certain if it would work. I thought about putting in a nice Honda engine in the chassis (I have a 13 horse electric start one sitting here somewhere) and putting a CVT (I think thats what it is called?) clutch on the engine then running a chain drive to the transaxle, just replacing the transaxles input pulley with a sproket. That way I wont have to make a clutch and I can use the engine speed to gain speed or slow down more like you would in a normal car but also I think it would give me much more range of speeds so if I can get the gears set right I can still have a nice low pulling gear then a nice high range for moving quickly. The transaxle is the 3 speed with hi and lo selector making it a 6 speed. What do yall think? Could it work?

Hi, so did you get anywhere with your idea?  It would be great if it worked eh bounce  I think the Sears Custom 8 is about the same as my Build-Off entry? and your torque converter would be like Doc Sprocket's Diesel Weasel which goes really well so I reckon these clutch things will get popular and used more in the future eh Sears Custom With CVT Clutch Questions 2240318088 Sears Custom With CVT Clutch Questions 2240318088 Sears Custom With CVT Clutch Questions 2240318088

It should work. The drive shaft would need to be on the left I think, and you would probably need a brake on the trans input so you dont grind gears.
