A 20hp Honda gas engine has to turn 3600 r.p.m.s to achieve the 20hp and is only putting out 35 to 36lbs of torque. would it have a problem turning the gearbox to a sufficient speed? Any guesses on what the r.p.m.s might be?
A: These gearboxes are only rated for 1800 rpm input max. Do not direct drive one of them from a gas engine capable of twice that rpm at full output.

Is it possible to move the input shaft to the opposite site of the gear box by swapping positions with the cover plate?
A: The gearbox could be flipped over to change the shaft orientation. You may also consider 13-1423-S which has the shafts turn in the same direction.

Can the input shaft be moved to the opposite side by swapping positions with the cover plate?
A: You can also flip it upside down as there are mounting points on both sides. You would just have to move the breather plug to the other side. Also look at item 13-1423-S which might solve your issue.

A: Yes it can be belt driven. Mounting can be in any position. It does have a breather plug in the center of one face that might require an elbow or riser to keep oil from running out.

If I were to create a square curtain and would like to lift this as one piece, is this the right type of gear to use? 2 of these in opposite corners will do it? Also can I reverse this and bring it down again by way of a controller? can tey be variable speed controlled?
A: Probably not. I think you would want a gear reducer which would increase the torque. Yes this box can be run in either direction. Maximum speed on the input is 1800 rpm, it could be used with a variable speed motor driving it.
