If you can get a right angle gearbox with a 2:1 reduction on it and then run a 5 inch sprocket on the output shaft to a 6 inch sprocket on the driveshaft for the apron chain this will give you a apron speed of about 225 rpm, which is just about right for running at two mph approximatly with yor tractor. make darn sure you include some kind of slip clutch or belt on this though because if you get a rock jammed in the apron your chain will be stretched out into a collection of horseshoe shaped parts. seen plenty of that when someone didnt loosen their slipclutches at the start of the harvest season, just for info new apron chain will cost right about $1000 per roll on a modern harvester.
