I live up in the sticks of northern minnesota and in school i use a mill almost everyday. using my knowledge of the mill, i made the attempt to make a hybrid of a foote and a 700. It took about 40 hours to complete. i milled a splined shaft and gears. i took the basic blueprints of a 700 and built it in a 3 speed with a foote design. i put all new bearings and such in and made a new imput shaft and everything. after i was done i tapped a plug with a breather tube and filled it with a 5weight oil similar to ATF. It now is a hybrid gearbox. foote case with rigid design and 700 technology. i have run it on my 1/4 mile dirt oval in the back yard for approx. 150 hours and has never broken apart and has worked smooth. on a 3D cad design program i have the blueprints if anyone would like them.

Any luck with the photos and teardown status of your hybrid foote/700?

Great thread!  This is what is good about the winter..  I get to spend time learning and reading some of these older posts..
I always wondered about that old three speed I had behind the garage.
Thanks for the info and the pics were really helpful.. :)

Neither unit is all that racer-friendly. You need an 820 transaxle or 700 transmission to be competitive.
