You say that your motor has a torque of 2000 lbs, is that 2000 ft-lbs or in-lbs at the shaft or  is that at the spocket?  If you are indicating at the sproket, then we have a start.  If not, then you will need to calculate the torque at the spocket.

thanks for writing back so soon. The 2000 Lbs is lbs an inch and that rating is at the shaft of the motor wich is 1/4" inches dia
