Straight Shaft KT-100 clutch...

I've come into posession of a KT-100 old-style straight shaft, inboard PTO. (driver's side PTO with standard right-sidewinder.) I'd like to run this with a minimum of PTO weight, and as reliable as possible, no jackshaft. Would the best option be to treat it like a JICA and get a 3/4" bore single disk clutch with low engagement?
This will be for local LTO dirt. It will be getting the Steve O'Hara easy tune treatment so it will idle nice and low too...

The problem is getting a small enough gear on the 3/4 shaft. Most just change the PTO to a tapered one. Does it have the 3rd bearing in the coil cover?

I'll have to see what I have for #35 3/4" drivers and 8mm belt drivers.... I may be able to work something out for direct drive! :) What's a common southeast overall ratio? 19:53 j/s to 20:66 secondary? That's what, about 9.5 ratio? I ran DD on asphalt at 10:85... Be interesting to hear. I can get a BMI jackshaft if I have to, unless someone has a Buller laying around they want to part with...

Sold my project motorcycle, so now I can afford the jackshaft. Guess I'll go "standard" for that. :) Savannah, you mean Roebling Road? I'll be there with LO206. if I can talk my boss into letting me have Friday off...

Ted, unless you just want to race Rainman around North Carolina forget direct drive lol Chuck (ps Savannah 3/6 to3/8 be. there).
