@TheJakeOfJake

I had a 9 inch engine pulley when I had the hotrod craftsman.  I wouldn't recommend it for a mud build.  I got pretty close to 30ish.  I'm going to shoot for a 6 or 7 on my build next year.

Stock trans pulley.

1:1 is typically a good setup on most mowers.

I had to guess... between 10-15?  There is a calculator out there somewhere I think.  I haven't found it yet.

I forgot to mention I had about 30" wheels on the rear when I got those speeds I mentioned in the post a few posts back.

In the MightyRaze Garage Research dept  GT 18 mud mower build - Page 2 1f602 , I put a 7 inch on a craftsman GT engine with the stock trans pulley 25 inch tires.

I got about 11mph at around 3000-3200 RPM. (throttle cable stuck, didn't get to 3600) Also gave me an excuse to see if the transaxle will leak on my next project.  

Tractor type specimen used for test.

Horizontal 18hp Briggs
Roper 633a HI/LO trans.
