I think hes talking about the transaxle gearbox the Deuce came with (Dana-Spicer). He wants to have the chain be the failure point, because these gearboxes are hard to find now. Though if you can find a gas golf cart, those have a carbon copy of the same thing.

Yes the forward and reverse gear box and itís only a 3/4Ē shaft that I sleeved to fit the 1Ē bore of the Polaris driven pulley. also the jackshaft is primarily there because of clearance issues and not wanting the much bigger driven clutch to be so close to the ground I would rather my chain take a **** kicking then the clutch. But to answer your question about if Iím planning on running races with this ... no but I am incredibly hard on things so there might be a few days where it sees some real heavy driving...

Hey kartorbust what do you have for a cart or buggy ? You seem to be full of knowledge! That’s definitely a bonus!!

Nope I do not have one. Honestly, it's from asking a lot of questions, reading a lot of posts on here, and elsewhere. My username is a play on a series I occasionally watch on YouTube called Farlands or Bust. So either I'm buying or building one, or I'll give up. Been on here for a couple years and in that time I've changed my mind on what I wanted to build many times over.

Ha ha!! I change my mind about things every few weeks but my ultimate goal is to make a super long travel single seat buggy with the 2012 sportsman 850 I have but it’s not in the budget at the moment and I wanted to practice my fabrication skills on this before I start that project

I would make sure the transaxle you have is a Dana Spicer H12 or at least confirm for sure on what it is. If it is an H12, max input torque is 96ft/lbs intermittently and only 24ft/lbs continuously. That 700 is probably pushing close to 70 to 90ft/lbs of torque and that will make that transaxle not last for very long. Even my old Polaris Trail Indy 500 I had would more than likely burn that thing up quite quick.

So you may need to come up with a different plan and or gearbox. Next suggestion for a gearbox would be one from a Polaris Trailboss.

Well that sucks because I just sold my old trail boss but I have a buddy that has a few old ones kicking around. But ya I know itís going to tear the rear end apart but when it does thatís when I will do the custom rear end. Iím the kinda guy that pushes things until they break just so I can fix them. So I got most of the fitting done just need to disassemble and make some more mounts and brace the frame then paint and reassemble

It's nice to see when the kids actually want to get their hands dirty and become grade monkeys.
