    Welcome to the site. Interesting problem you sorta have.

    I cannot say I have heard of a "shifting" gearbox to replace the RPM unit. There was a guy on this site who took a mototrcycle engine with the piston and connecting rod removed. He then hooked his motor power to that engines flywheel. That inturn spun that motors tranny and he ran the chain off its sprocket to the rear end he had. Then shifted that motors gears.

    I guess I would ask why you wish to loose the CVT. Many go to good lengths to have a CVT as tuned right they are great. I am guessing your is not tuned to your liking. If it was you may think different about it. Tuning it may be just learning a little bit and investing a small amount of loot in weights or srpings and little downtime while adjusting it.

    Why don't you like the CVT? Whats it do that makes you wish for other? Bill

    Now that NOBAMA has PROVEN he is the absolute WORST president in the history of history Jimmy Carter can thank him for stealing the dunce crown.

    Lets hope the next guy repeals NObama care along with the rest of the stupid crap this blight on our windshield has done.

    Edgar, Welcome to the site! You're in luck! If anyone knows about these machines, are the people on this site. They are very helpful to all.
    So why is it that you want do go away from the CVT? I am in a similar situation, that I am limited by my gearbox as to the engine I use. I have a older Comet box.
    If Bugpac ends up picking up yours, maybe I could buy his old one.

    I have seen a couple of builds that used a small motorcycle gearbox mounted behind an engine like yours. One of them was from an old Honda 125. I saw that one up close and watched it drive and it worked really well.

    It would be amusing to see a cascade of gear boxes.

    He said its a vertical shaft engine... unless he has it confused? How do you attach a vert shaft engine to an rpm box?

    A final drive unit from a utility 4 wheeler. Pinion attaches to engine or CVT output. Seal one side of the spool and attach the other to the input of the gearbox. Or just get a horizontal shaft engine and be done with it.

    I don't think it's a vertical engine, I think he's just confused. As far as converting to a manual, I think he just wants to shift. Some people just prefer to chose the gear themselves. If the RPM box is for sale, I might be interested also.
