Yup! That is about the handiest tool in any shop.

So handy, So versatile. Many people will buy 2 or 3 of the 10 dollar Harbor freight Models just keep from Changing "Blades", Wire Wheels, sanding Disc...

Going to be a 56 tooth axle sprocket and 10 Tooth Drive I think that's right, with a tva2 torque converter.

Gear ratio is 5.6:1 with a 20" tall rear tire and T-C. May be a little high on the final drive.
One way to find out. If it works you should have great top speed.

When using a Cent. clutch, geared at 6:1 the max tore size is 15" if you go to 18" or 20" tires you need a TC.
You have a TC but geared to 5.6:1.
My concern would be that it may be geared too High. In other words like trying to take off in 4th gear with a Stick shift car. It either wont move or it burns up Clutches.

Like I said You just gotta try it.
