    Hi Clayton,

    HP = Torque X rpm / 5252. That can be rearranged to solve for Torque, Torque = Hp X 5252 / rpm.
    If a person puts the 70Hp and 540rpm in the equation, the answer is about 680 ft-lb of torque.

    We may have exceeded the Torque and Hp rating of the shaft a little bit ;).... At least we didn't over speed the shaft.

    You should be comforted knowing your engine should be able to run a 5 quart ice cream freezer.:)...
