I cannot find a 12t and a 60t to fit the 1" shaft with the same chain pitch.

    sounds like you have the idea, but the 12 and 60 T sprockets won't share the same shaft. the 12 will be on the driven jackshaft then the 60T on your axle. Plenty of choices of 50-series sprockets (same as #530 chain) with the smallest being 10T iirc.

    As far as the axle goes, that's down to how or what you build your carrier with. Again, like lug nutz noted, you can weld a hub on, or modify something like an atv carrier and have a bolt on hub on a splined shaft.

    But doesn't that 12t go on the same shaft as the secondary pulley?

    Yes. your questions made me think you were looking for the same size dia for the 12 and 60. Is finding the same tooth pitch the issue? a #50 size sprocket will run 530 chain and plenty are out there with a 1", 1/4 keyed diameter. A 530 bike sprocket or a custom made one is what you're after for the 60 T

    Tried the shocks I bought for the front in the rear. Don't think they are gonna be stiff enough.

    Looking good. I know the plans call for the shocks to be mounted like that. But if you ask Lugs and a few others on here its best that you mount them closer to straight up and down. The reason is because the shocks don't need to work so hard to keep the thing up.

    Also mount them as close to the axle as you can get them.

    Speedway motors sells coil springs that will fit those shocks they arent very expensive.



    you will need about 100-125# spring on the front the rear would be somewhere around 150# spring.

    I run 100# springs on my front shocks, had it up to 150 but thats too stiff of a ride.

    You should weigh each corner after its built so you know the how heavy to go.

    If I did change the spring, what's the best way to remove them and reinstall new ones? Looks like that would be a difficult job.

    Another option is to buy a pair of shocks for the rear that have stronger springs. I'm having a difficult time finding inexpensive shocks though.
