I have been trying to get around to this conversion on my 40 for sometime. After talking to some people in the club there seems to be a consensus that 33" tires are the tipping point. 33" or smaller go mini. 35" and larger go with a Saginaw. I have read about the 60 PS conversation but don't know if it would be strong enough to handle 35". I have not heard of an 80 PS in a 40 does it / can it work?
