Depends on the model as to what size pulleys you have. For example I have 2 murrays, one manual, one hydro. The manual has a 3" engine pulley and a huge(12"?) tranny pulley. The hydro has a 5" engine pulley and 3" tranny pulley. This might also prove useful for others looking for cheaper pulleys, since the rest of the hydro mowers are about worthless for what we do.

Go big on the tires.. That will get you a little more speed. If you want to go stupid fast...you could do a chain drive from the tx to sprokets to drive the wheels. You will need to do at least an 8" lift to pull this off
