V-Drive question
« on: June 15, 2020, 06:32:39 PM »
Does anyone know what the transmission reduction ratio is on a P323 with an MD-11C and V-Drive? I can't find it in the documentation. Thanks.

It should be stamped on the v-drive serial number plate.

From the Pearson specs:

23HP 2-cylinder Volvo MD 11C Diesel Engine and 1.91:1 reduction gear in V-drive
-- OR --
30HP 4-cylinder Unversal Atomic 4 Gasoline Engine and 2:1 reduction gear in V-drive

I can confirm that the P323's Atomic-4 V-drive reduction is 2:1.  Doesn't help you with the diesel though.
