Thanks to both of you. I'm gonna take a look at Sears to help me (and
a friend) think this through some more. Does the following info change
the answer from either of you? The axle sprocket is about 1/3 the size
of the drive wheel sprocket, so a modification will be getting rid of
that 3:1 gear ratio (or is it 1:3?). Definitely speeding the tire up.
But I also have 6 drive gears so can adjust the speed. Obviously,
until I put a tire on there I don't know if the lower gears will make
me run behind the snowblower or will be tolerable. But, again, does
that info change your answers?
