You will want a cam with lobes.
They work the best in these applications.
Your welcome!

The surgery went well. They feel that his leg will recover good. He's very sore. They are a little concern about an infection but as of now things look good. Thanks to the good Lord above for taking care of him. Thanks to all for your calls and messages.

This is his first racer with a 700 all others he has are transaxles.  He was determined to shift and ground his first tranny up. Then he bought a 700 from someone who told him he could shift it.   He doesn't know how or why just that he was told he now can shift.  I'll see him in a couple of weeks and race against this tranny I guess I'll see first hand

Tecumseh 17hp. Race ready. Just freshened.
 Billet rod, full roller rockers, billet flywheel. Cylinder head was done by me. Dual springs, 1/4" stainless valves.
Bertrand carb, Isky cam. Mikuni dual outlet fuel pump. Will come with exhaust for MTD box type chassis.

Hook up a solenoid to the starter, plumb fuel to the pump and bolt on the exhaust, and go race.

Engine belongs to my brother in law, Troy Werachowski. May be able to arrange pay-pal through him.
This engine won the Badger state points championship last season with Fong driving, won the 2 seasons before with Troy driving.
Will ship at purchasers expense. Located in central Wisconsin.

Thanks for the input. As of right now we are planning to run this transaxle.

So multi-person is 8 to 10 pedalers and a driver. With that being said because the driveshaft will have an individual freewheel for each pedaler the input torque will not be equal to the total force of all the pedalers.

The current plan is to tow this thing in reverse with the rear wheels off the ground for transportation. We will be building a steering lock-in so that we can leave the front axle on the ground and have the transaxle not under any load when being towed.

Reasonably long service life is honestly probably only a few thousand miles. By taking the static weight load off the axles, and the torsional load of braking off the transmission by running outboard brakes I think this is quite possible.

I did come up with one more question though. Are the gears helical or straight cut? In other words can I reverse drive them? The reason why is, with the current setup I would have to run a 'B' input Peerless 820 which seems to be significantly more difficult to source. With that being said I can run my driveshaft in either direction so if I flip the transaxle and run the input shaft opposite than the standard spinning direction would this cause damage?

Last what is the standard direction of input on the 820 'A' and 820 'B'?
I have come up with another question regarding the 820. Can I run the input shaft in the opposite rotation? Meaning if I flip the transaxle in a way that would usually mean that I would get 1 forward gear and 5 reverse gears, can I just spin my driveshaft the other direction to correct it or will that cause damage.
