    Some of you may recognize these parts - I bought the billet gearbox from K-fab a while back and have realized that I won't have time to continue the project.

    You can read up on what K' did here (starts on page 16) - https://www.minibuggy.net/forum/proje...-style-16.html

    The plan was to build a billet RPM with a larger oil capacity and a PTO driven oil pump which could run oil through a small radiator to keep the RPM oil temps in check. As you can see, it's a work in progress. In this pile, there are enough shafts/gears/cases to assemble an RPM in stock form (you'd need bearings and seals). The ratio is 10:1, meant for a CVT.

    The pump has never been used.

    Asking $1000 OBO for everything. I'd prefer to sell in person, could meet up in southern CA/Arizona area during future trips. I'm in San Diego.

    I believe it's 8:1 gear-sets.

    One of the gear even says "8:1"

    I've never had a 10:1 set and the 9:1 set was in the old original Deztaz with the two smoke in it.

    Info for any possible buyers:

    The two long shafts are for an output on the side opposite of the clutch side. They're keyed and can be used as PTO shafts. My intentions were to drive the pump off of it and possibly an alternator. They were never used or installed in an operational box.

    Hey Guys,
    Still for Sale?
    Any idea on the boxed size and weight for shipping? Where are you located. I would like to check on a freight price.

    cheers

    Hey Curtis! Yep, I still have the parts. They are fairly heavy, but I'll get a weight and size for you tomorrow evening. Just getting back from the MBN meetup.

    I'm in San Diego, CA.

    Hey Curtis, I sent you a PM the other day. Wasn't sure if you got it.

    Trip was great!
