AC with Nice load.

Recommended Posts

What was the horsepower and lb ft of torque on that AC? Seems almost impossible to believe! Must have had a 15 to 1 chain sprocket ratio!

I believe the ac would have 74 hp. It probably wouldn't get going fast enough to worry about stopping.

71 h.p. @ 1400 rpm and 300 pounds of torque @ 800 rpm from 471 cubic inches.  12 tooth primary sprocket and most likely a 43 rear sprocket. 40 x 6 rear tire sizes.  Brakes are 17 1/4 x 6 shoes on rear and  17 1/4 x 5 shoes on primary drive and 15 x 3 external band on jack shaft. Trans could be a 3 speed, a 4 speed or the optional 7 and 2 speed split box.     Paul
