    Purchased a plasma today. Hypertherm 30xp. Wish I had bought it much sooner.

    I did the exact same thing with my trailing arms, had those 2 plates lazer cut at a local shop. That middle hole looks big tho? Could it be smaller or were you limited to certain bits/tools?

    The hole is a little big because of the hole saw I was limited to. Don't think it will make a difference. I bought a plasma the next day.

    All this sprocket and chain info is confusing. Let's say I use a Comet Duster torque converter. The driven pulley has a 1" diameter hole. So I need a 1" shaft to go through that and have my small sprocket on that shaft correct? Let's say I am going to use 12t and 60t sprockets. I cannot find a 12t and a 60t to fit the 1" shaft with the same chain pitch.

    Make a flange that is attached to your axle, then bolt up your sprocket to that.

    I welded my flange directly to my axle and it works great.

    Thank you for replying. That's probably what I'll do. I'm trying a contact at a local atv repair shop next week for Polaris atv clutch and gearbox.

    Cool I'd really like to see it happen in a shredder. I Had plans to do the same, but those plans changed when a sled became available, the only issue I can see is that you need to get the gearbox quite close to the engine because of belt lengths, That can be tricky if the engine is a V-twin. Look at getting the gearbox from an older unit, its much smaller and compact.
    Also check ebay for the polaris clutch and gearbox, sometimes they go for around $100 each.
