The input shaft spins at up to 3600 rpm...the outputs (axles) spin at what less than 100 rpm??  The second tranny output would have to be timed in revolutions per hour.

:WRS:        Are you attempting to make a double drive axle rear end set up?   May want to consider coming off each rear axle with chains and sprockets to drive the second set of wheels.   :twocents-02cents:

I would think a # 50 chain would be appropriate to drive the second wheel.

Here is a little conceptual sketch of the set up, it is not articulated from side to side but is from front to rear. You would want to limit the front to rear travel range to keep the chain tension at all times. If you wanted to have full time 4 wheel drive you could use a single axle shaft at the back, but I doubt that it would corner very well.

      Hello all - I have a 1990 312-8 that recently started being a pain to shift, and eventually it stopped shifting into 1st and reverse and was hard to get into 2nd and 3rd. After looking at some posts on here I discovered the possibility that a loose shifter could cause this problem. My shifter definitely had a lot of play in it so I proceeded to pull the seat, rear plate and shift plate off the tractor so I could get to the area where the shifter goes into the transmission. I removed the shifter, reseated it and got the dog head screw lined up in the shifter donut and was hoping that would fix the issue, but after getting it all reassembled and trying to shift even into 2nd or 3rd the shifter, while not as sloppy, now just turns side to side - taking it back out and inspecting the shifter I have discovered that the pin which holds the donut in place on the shifter has sheered and the donut is now able to free spin on the shaft. Not too much of a problem as I plan on just pressing the old pin out and replacing, however I am concerned that the ball on the end of the shifter seems to be getting pretty flattened off on the left and right sides of the ball. I tried looking up a replacement on Toro and several other parts websites but I can't find one anywhere - I can get the boot, everyone has those, but no shifter. My question is, does anyone know where I might be able to find a new shifter and more important, is a little flattening on the ball anything to worry about? 
      Also, with the shifter out, looking down the hole my transmission looks like it's full of mud! Definitely doesn't look like the gear oil I put in it - anyone know what could be causing the transmission gear oil to be sludging up like that?

      Hello again...
      So I just posted recently concerning a stuck clutch on my D-250.
      I pulled the deck, inspected everything, got frustrated, posted on Red Square and got some pretty solid advice.
      So under the guidance of Garry and Squonk, I was able to "unstick" the clutch by jolting the thing loose in top gear. It worked perfectly... Except... Now the thing is physically stuck in high range and the lever won't budge. 
      It definitely worked just fine only moments before the clutch trick.
      Did I break something in the gear box?
      I did remove and reinstall the deck which I initially thought may have been installed wrong and could have been making physical contact with the linkage, but upon further inspection, doesn't appear to be although I admit I can't see it all.
      I was SO happy... Lol... It was working again and now this... Seems to be my kind of luck.
      Any tips or tricks for this issue?
      Thanks so much for your replies ahead of time.
      I have also apparently developed a completely unrelated fuel issue which I'll post separately on the engine forum.
      Thanks y'all... I really appreciate it.
      I DID manage to get the grass cut... I don't really like mowing in high range 1st gear but it was the only option... I guess some good came out of the situation.
