Re: Rusty Shackleford
The thought crossed my mind several times. I found a couple issues with that, but it's definitely doable. First off, the bearings are metric, but the sprockets are 5/8". So the bearings have to get replaced. Then the shaft has to get custom made. I don't have a thread die for 5/8" shaft. There are ways around it, but the jackshaft was a simple solution. The main reason I wanted a TAV was for gearing. I didn't want to be limited to a single speed, and no shift kit in the world can handle the torque I would put through it.
