Sounds like you are getting down to the nitty-gritty of it. All these final details seem to take forever, but take the time to get them right and you may never have to touch it again. 
  O0 Yeah on that, MO!

I'm thinking when your running 35 mph on an inch of water or an inch of ice you'll want both hands on the handle bars  :shock:

Well Dang!!!!
I have decided to give the snowmobile belt drive up...

I just don't have the RPM/HP to make it do what I want.

I can't get it to get up to a 1 to 1 ratio at 3000 rpm so I have to run

the bug motor up to closer to 4500rpm to get the prop in to the upper 2000 rpm range. When I do get it up there the belt slips a lot.

I got a shorter belt to see if there was a difference, much better but still not good.

    I got two 32 tooth #50 chain sprockets , same chain I use on the top drive, with 1 3/16th hubs.

They go right on to the parts of the SNB drive that I had made.

With the hubs I can change the ratio if needed with only a sprocket.

with a two stage chain drive I'll have to run idler sprocket on both chains I suppose. I had to put a key way in the shafts, amazing what an angle grinder can do. It is a little les forgiving then a belt as far as alignment. Hope to hit the gas this weekend and see if I can blow some dirt/gravel.
