Transaxle gearing
« on: March 24, 2020, 10:17:28 PM »
Gearing options when using a transaxle, Right now I'm setup with a near 1-2 ratio input and 12-1 in top gear to get a total ratio of 6-1. I found another transaxle that had top gear 6-1, (I'm pretty sure) So to achieve the same crank to axle ratio I can go 1-1 on pulleys, Other than the two things that came to mind of benefit, that I can run a significantly smaller engine pulley and my transaxle input will not be over driven.

Is there anything else to be gained from this gearing? any feel differences? any reasons why the overdrive is a better option?

Thanks


Evan

Overdrive takes the torque out of the equation, or lessens it,
that keeps from putting too much stress on the gears and
breaking the tranny.
