i've read everything i can find about the 359 on this site, but all the posts are a yr or 2 old, so figured i'd start a new one.

does anyone know if they require the same input rpm at the gearbox and do they spin the same direction?

i may have the opportunity to buy a 359 for my 4300 (think it will mount up ok) but the 359 was belt driven from a front pto. would my mid pto drive the gear box at the same rpm and direction as the pulley setup was meant to?

seems to me that they would have used the same gearbox for all units and adjusted the rpm w/ different size pulleys....cheaper than making different gearboxes.
