Just as mentioned in the subject I want to build a system for my rototiller. I have a Large rear tine tiller with a 8hp gas engine. It currently uses belts to drive the system. You may be asking why? Because I have a itch... Im bored... Okay so I relize I am going to need a pump, a drive motor, Oil tank, filter, and a control valve. I just dont have any idea where to start...where do I buy this stuff? Whats the math/formulas on figuring out what kind of pump I need. I have a little general info... The Engine is 8hp, I dont know the specific RPM it puts out yet. But their is a 3" pulley on the engine, and then about a 7" pulley on the main shaft going into the transmission. Again Im green, but eager to learn about hydraulics...Any info would be great... Thanks! Joao...Oakland, CA
