    665 foot pounds is more torque than a cummins diesel...

    well how about somehting that a motor cycle engin can produce?

    chuck at endless shere gave me this number, and the math is way beyond me, so I have no idea what torque I will be using.

    This is what I may have to use 12 24 48 Volt DC Motor Etek MT/Pattern Permanent Magnet at

    power chart

    I found this chart...I think it indicates that the torque is not more than 125lb/in.

    So there must be some chance that an ITV or CTV would work... not that I would trust a V belt.

    That torque is in INCH pounds. Divide by 12 to get foot-pounds... 165 inch pounds is a little less than 14 foot-pounds.
