Default Re: Hi, I'm planning a huge adventure, please help!

The thing is, (If I have my terminology correct) this is a veritcal shaft motor, which pretty much means that the motor is oriented in such a way to spin something horizontally (the lawnmower blades). I want to turn it 90* so I can run a chain on it. Can it be done?

Could I just run a vertical crank to the horizontal shaft, have the motor spin the horizontal shaft, and turn the vertical crank, which in turn turns something else? I don't know, it just seems too involved.

How far away from the HT engines should I stay? Remember, this is coast to coast...
