    I also thought the guy was crazy when he told me he had a Yamaha mower I could have. But when I got there that is what he had. Right now it has no body on it. But it is light blue. If i cant find anything on it. How had would it be to get some speed out of it? It has a hydro static tranny.

    You would actually need a smaller pulley to spin the hydro faster but I think you will find it's all in the check valve and fluid flow porting.
