Yes its one. I have run a noram titan and the premier. We weld a pulley to them. The premier we have at ec. Well we have one more. comes with different springs for different engagement rpms 150.00. Adding a pulley is extra.

Awesome build as usual George.
I am glad someone finally built one of these.
I have seen several guys pass on this chassis for the box frame mtd or even other models.

If you don't mind, can you post a picture of how you did the frame rails on this one?

The reason I ask is, if I remember right this is not a typical MTD the frame/pan is tapered/narrowed at the front right?

It would help lots of guys, that can get thier hands on one of these, to see how you put in the frame rails and front axle on this type of mower.

Thanks George.

We have a guy in our group running with a frame like yours. It seems to do rather well and has a somewhat smaller size to start with. I also went with a Premier clutch. They seem to be pretty well built. We'll see how it holds up.

my angle box is 1 to 1 I run 5 inch pulleys keeping it 1 to 1 then sprocket wise that really depends on motor weight of driver tires track condition and setup. Generally generally in the 5.5 to 1 range

What size chain will you run on this mower. Will you have to notch the back of your frame out for your rear sprocket.   Im just sitting back taking notes.

Hey George, that is the exact same frame I use on my WOO outlaw. I'm not sure there is a better frame out there at the moment. That machine of yours looks wild, I love the looks of the walkthru. Like you said earlier, there is no reason why one of these chassis's can't be as light as a huffy style chassis by the time you get them race ready. Frame for frame they are the same weight as any huffy frame. The longer wheelbase makes them handle the big hp engines so much better.   Ryan
