Could you use a marine out drive like a "velvet drive"? Either in a 1:1 ratio forward and back, or the ratio you want?

If you find a boat grave yard these could be cheap used, look for a rotten wood cruiser with a chevy v8 and unbolt all the stuff behind the motor.

At 145 and 153 lb for just the transmission these are not any lighter than automotive transmissons. These need a large cast bell housing also. I expect the complete package would be in the 200 lb range.

I do like the idea. I don't know how strong the clutces are in them. The 2.50 ratio unit would be the right gearing.
