Easy jack shaft for those who want to run transaxles. This is just a typical front wheel kart hub. Just add high speed ball bearing's. For this one, I have a 6" 3/16" keyed 5/8" shaft from mcmastercar.com. Id recomend adding some gussets if you could though.









and for my c/p, I bought a 12 tooth flat machinable flat steel sprocket for #40 chain. Had it bored out to 1". Then i took a brake rotor from a transaxle, cut the rotor alway so it was just a 1" OD 5/8" ID splined hub. Sliped it inside the sproket. And got it tig welded useing stainless steel rod.

I don't think it would hold for BIG HP. Its a cast gear not meachined steel. But for the less power motors great tip.

mine was cast, welded like it was steel which is weird, but where it busted you could clearly tell it was cast!

 Hear is a good one for ya, Charging post for under $10  woo Go to wal-mart in the automotive department and get a female 12 volt power outlet and a male adaptor to go with it. Hook up the female up to you mowers battery and put on the mower somewhere you can get to easy. take the male adaptor and hook it up to your battery charger and your set to go!
      And if you don't have a charger you can get another male adapter and connect them via cord together and plug into your truck to charge.
