im building a racing mower.
i wanted to know, since there are no wheels to fit on stock
teansaxles(if there are please tell me where to get them), should i have
a centrifugal clutch on the engine, with a belt going directly to an old
peerless, with a chain drive going to the rear axle? would it be worth
it? the only thing i would need to get is the rear this what i
should do, or could i get fast speed wheels somehow to fit on the rear
transaxle??? if you know anything about this tell me. i need this info,
and need to know where i can get the parts.please answer if u know anything

Good evening. Hope alls well. While I'm far from being an expert, there
are two ways to go about this. You can go with the Peerless gear box(700
transmission) which is a 5 speed,and kart axle or, you can use the
trans-axle and still use kart style wheels if you use an adapter that
goes on the axle and allows you not only to use the kart wheels but also
gives you some adjustment on the width. But I have seen factory chrome
Murray wheels. Don't have any but do know they made them.

thanks for everything, but i hav one last question (apolagies for all
the questions) i didnt see anything listed as adaptors, and i was
wondering what you meant by adaptor. did you mean a hub for kart wheels,
or the rear shafts??? sorry for the confusion, but im confused

Ok, go to the acme home page and click on the 3/4 trans-axle parts. Then
select the adaptors. Will show you everything you need. While there,
check the brake adapters. You need to be able to stop these things and
stock trans-axle brakes are not enough. To me fast is only fast if you
are in control, no brakes is considered out of control. Oh and yeah
these are for your trans-axle axles and allow you to use kart wheels.
The site will explain it all.
