Permagreen clutch question

I have a permagreen ultra, i bought it used about 2 weeks ago so i do not know much about them. I do now it does not have the same engine, it has been changed to a 6 3/4hp, not sure if the trans is factory, it is a 5 speed with reverse? can anyone tell me if that is factory? Also i was wondering if you could put handle bar clutch on it, if that is what you call it, to make it easier to shift, since it is hard to shift some times, also make it easier to stop, since you could pull the handle and engage the clutch, to help stop the machine. Anyways any help would be greatly appreciated.

I thought they used a centrifugal clutch on the crank and most I have seen are 2 forward and 1 reverse

that is what i thought, it most have a different transmission in it also, does anyone know why it would shift hard some times? you can have it in 4th gear and want to go to neutral and it will make it to first or second and then, wont shift at all, you have to try and jam it in neutral. it probably does it one out of three times. wondering what could be wrong?

All ultras have a 5 speed trans. They only use 2 of the forward speeds but it is a 5 speed if you want to use all of them.

If the engine has been changed, I doubt you will be spreading anything with it. Its a special engine that is no longer available.

The original briggs engine has a shaft coming out the side of the engine which runs a driveshaft that goes to a small right angle gearbox under the spreader to make it spin.
