1  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: Transaxle questions on: September 29, 2014, 08:37:30 PM
If I had another 820 I would use it. Anyone wanna donate? As for the other questions, I was wanting to use a transaxle to get back to what we use to do around here locally. I figured if I can be fast with it I would have proven something.

I use to use an 820 obviously it was great, now I'm thinking of building another mower for GP and think I want to use another transaxle. This time I plan to flip it, instead of using a jackshaft. I have a few options in transaxles but really got to looking at a peerless 600. Can you flip a 600, and what is the best way to run a larger axle in it. I know others have ran 1 1/4" axles, I can also use pillow blocks or flange bearings for support. Pics or part numbers would be helpful.

Use the avs sump with an oil pump.

They plumb it in to the side of the crankcase and pull air out. This will pull almost as much vacuum as it will provide pressure.

Were you able to keep the original frame height?  I think I have seen pictures, were they posted several years ago?

Get the one with the nut on the crankshaft, then you can buy better parts and will have to do less machine work.

Almost anything is possible.  Be prepared to spend around 2500 to make a top of the line full tilt no expense spared engine.  Billet everything, bored, stroked, decked, ported, polished, titanium, etc.  I have around 400-500 in carb/intake/valve work alone.

Thanks Fellas, are there any differences in handling characteristics?  The chassis works excellent as of now just want to make sure I don't alter anything that will mess up other things.  I understand I need to keep it square etc.  Just trying to make sure I don't create an issue.

How many of you have converted a mod X or supersportsman style chassis on small 6" wheels to the larger 8" wheels legal in uslmra? Trying to save money by converting an old chassis to bigger and better things.

Are you talking about cut to length push rods?

You may have bent, twisted, broken the shift keys, or input/bevel gears.  These transmissions are very sensitive to things like popping the clutch and downshifting (dont do either of these).

Never run the stock AVS counter balance weights in an ungoverned motor.  They can barely handle stock operating rpms.

I just wish Rusty could win a most photogenic contest!

Is this an AVS OHV or a non-AVS (AVS uses a plastic flywheel shroud, non-AVS uses steel)?  The non-AVS has a little more sturdy counter weight system attached to the crankshaft.  On the local level we have used stock motors up to 4000-4500 RPMs and used them for many races.

I've got the whole thing.  I would be willing to sell the whole mower but not just parts.
