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.

      I liked, but didn’t find an applicable thread, so I made a new post. 
       
      We got a 69 Charger 10 last Friday. The brakes don’t really stop it, kinda slows it to an idle speed. Still too fast for the brakes to be engaged. FIL did some reading and it’s apparently the gears that stop the tractor, so now we’re looking at servicing and possible actually doing work on the trans. That’s fine, not a problem, figured we’d get into this eventually, so with the one known issue at hand, how would/have you gone about tackling this trans? 
      Trying to get voices of experience that might be able to save us a headache or two lol. TIA!

      I have what I believe is a Wheelhorse transmission from a 1964 -1966.  Is this worth selling via shipping?  I'm not sure on the value or desire for these parts, as I don't know if it is worth it to post online or just sell local, as I imagine that the shipping cost will be quite high because of its weight.  What do you all think?

      Just picked up a 312 8 Tractor, Shifter handle is very loose and it won't go into none of the gears. Any ideas? Fixes?

      Hello,
       
      I have what I believe is a 1989 312-8 wheel horse and need to purchase transaxle dipstick.  I do not need the tube just the dipstick, however, if the dipstick comes with the tube that's fine also...
